"Fat Brass" will perform at the "Knights on the Fox" summer concert series on Tuesday, July 16. Kate Hogan, director of retail operations for the Green Bay Packers, will serve as the evening's emcee. The concert will take place at the Ed and Sally Thompson Marina and is free and open to the public.

"Fat Brass" is a laid-back 8-piece horn band whose repertoire includes funk, rock, fusion, jazz, soul and R&B. Their horn section combines with a tight rhythm section and vocals to create a fun and casual experience. Some of the bands favorite pieces include songs by Stevie Wonder, Blood Sweat and Tears, and Michael Bublé.

"Knights on the Fox" features live music in a casual atmosphere along the banks of the Fox River. Concert-goers can carry in their own picnic or purchase sandwiches, snacks and beverages at Phil's, St. Norbert's on-campus restaurant located in the Campus Center. Picnicking begins at 5 p.m., followed by the concerts from 6:30-8 p.m. Concerts will be canceled in the event of rain. Check the St. Norbert College website or call for updates on the status of the performance.

The docks of the Thompson marina will be open for those who wish to come by boat. Parking is available in the lots off of Third Street and College Avenue, with handicapped parking in the lot near Old St. Joseph Church. Lawn chairs and blankets are suggested. Follow the signs to find your way to the parking lots.
