CLEMMONS — Forsyth County Government and Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County will host psychedelic rock/jam band Marvelous Funkshun at the eighth annual Parks Concert Series on Aug. 12 at 5 p.m. at Tanglewood Park.

Marvelous Funkshun has toured the Southeast heavily since 2014.

Their live shows have been described as dynamic, foot-stomping. Their fans affectionately call them “The Funkshun.”

The band has shared the stage with a diverse group of artists, including George Porter Jr. of the Meters, Eric Gales, Roosevelt Collier, Perpetual Groove, Shaun Martin of Snarky Puppy, Alan Evans of Soulive, Kofi Burbridge and the legendary Snoop Dogg.

Families are encouraged to enjoy free art activities sponsored by Publix Charities during the concert. Vendors, food trucks and beverages will also be available for purchase at all Parks Concert Series concerts.

This year marks the eighth season for the Parks Concert Series, which is a collaborative presentation by the Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County and Forsyth County Government. In an effort to spread out the concerts for the community, these concerts will take place once a month through October. All concerts are free and family-friendly.

Tanglewood Park is located at 4061 Clemmons Road, Clemmons.

Series partners include Publix Charities, Best of Winston, WFDD, WSNC, WTOB, YES! Weekly, Foothills Brewing, Raffaldini Vineyards and RH Barringer Distributing Company.

Concerts and parking at both parks are free. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs and may bring a picnic or patronize food trucks onsite. Refreshments such as water, beer and wine are available for purchase, with all proceeds supporting Arts Council. No outside alcohol is permitted.

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will take place at Reynolds Place Theatre, located at 251 N. Spruce St., Winston-Salem.
