The Breeze Band will be performing at Sunday at the Roundhouse this weekend on the lawn of the Oliver Nestus Freeman Roundhouse.

The Breeze Band hails from eastern North Carolina and has a signature sound featuring tight vocal harmonies and polished brass and rhythm sections. A state-of-the-art sight and sound systems enable the band to perform a varied set list, including well-known and original songs from genres including beach music, soul, R&B and the classics.

There are currently six members of the band, Barney Norfleet, Gordon Spring, Ronnie Raper, Lew Martin, Ed Credle and Jonathon Tedder. All six have ties in Wilson, Nash or Edgecombe counties.

The performance is part of the summer concert series, Sunday at the Roundhouse, which will have a different band each Sunday afternoon.

The Freeman Roundhouse has been open since 2001 and works to promote and present African-American history, art and culture to the city of Wilson and the surrounding area.

The concert is begins at 6:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
