A band with big sound, two singers, horns, guitar, keyboard and more, plays Tuesday night 7-9pm in Faust County Park in Chesterfield.
It's the fourth in a series of free summer concerts every Tuesday, organized by Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce. The county park, city and individual businesses sponsor the concerts.
Spectrum Band plays June 26. The popular St. Louis band even opened for ZZ Top at Scottrade Center as part of an IBM corporate event, and has played all around the St. Louis metropolitan area, and beyond, for two decades, according to its website.

Bring your own blanket or lawn chair. The Faust Park concert venue opens Tuesdays by 5:15pm (on Olive Boulevard next door to ) in the same park where the and reside.
Food concessions open at 5:30pm, music starts at 7pm, ends at 9pm.
Area restaurants offer food for dinner from the concession, at affordable prices. Beer, wine, soda, water, popcorn and candy are also available.
Tuesday's weather forecast for the evening is clear in the 80s/70s.
BEST TIP: Parking option
There are two entrances to the concert venue. I discovered the one last week that is east on Olive Boulevard of the main entrance to Faust Park. Going in there, you can park on the grass at the back of the concert hill. Much closer to epicenter.
Otherwise, unless you arrive very early, the main entrance to the park and its lots are typically so full that you have to walk a much longer way to the concert. This longer walk is on a paved area though, if you need that.
