In celebration of the Town of Laurel and the Centenary Church’s 200th Anniversary Celebration the concert is free and open to 7th-12th grade students. Forever Moon is a Baltimore-based rock band whose blend of passionate lyrics, melodic harmonies and impressive musicianship has drawn comparisons to Tom Petty, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Tonic and Vertical Horizon. Formed in April 1999, Forever Moon has continued to amaze crowds with their high-energy shows and thought provoking lyrics. Since their formation, they have had the opportunity to perform with several national and regional acts and in 2001 released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which they recorded with the help of their friends in the Grammy-nominated band Smalltown Poets. In the case of bad weather the concert will be held in the church’s concert hall. For more information contact Centenary Church at 302-875-3983 or Debbie Mitchell at 302-629-9604.
