Lagoon Summer Concert Series July 29

July 17, 2009

Families and friends come into the cool shade under the large trees on the West Lawn of the Lory Student Center. In front of the concert pavilion, they spread blankets or open camp chairs, settle the kids and family dogs, then produce picnic dinners. At last, they sit back and wait for the concert to begin...

The story behind the band 

The Harley D (of the Harley D & V-Twins Band) says, "Think of us as a juke box with talent. We want to please every crowd we're in front of -- all ages, backgrounds, and styles. Music speaks to everybody on one level or another. We just want to be an excuse for people to gather and celebrate life."

Harley has been a local music teacher (guitar, electic, acoustic, drums, bass, vocals) in this area for decades. He's also spent decades as a hired gun for other bands, most recently working with The Tumbledowns.

After the last band he worked with decided to take a breather – Harley said to himself, “Why don’t I do this myself since I love it so much!” Next step was to surround himself with his best friends and the best musicians in the area and the V-twins were born. Their motto: "You say it we play it!"
