HURRICANE — Leif Bjarnson and the Forresters are jumping in to save the day for “Hurricane Valley Summer Concerts in the Park” Thursday at Hurricane City Park, 200 N. Main, after the scheduled singers cancelled.

Bjarnson shared the stage with The Forresters in 2014 at the Hurricane Concerts in the Park series, and now they are back again.

Bjarnson has performed for the last 10 years in many different settings, and although he is most comfortable with classical and religious music, he crosses over to rock ‘n’ roll and country music for fair and festival events.

His album, “There’s A Time,” is available on iTunes, CD Baby and will also be available at the park event. Bjarnson will be performing some originals from his album and a few songs with the band.

The Forresters is an indie/alternative rock band whose members have grown up in Southern Utah and are currently attending Hurricane High School. The band members are Jefferson Bjarnson (vocals, lead guitar), Jaxton Winder (rhythm guitar), Braydon Buell (bass) and Kory Adams (drums).

The group’s sources of inspiration come from bands such as Imagine Dragons, Two Door Cinema Club and Led Zeppelin. They have been together for almost two years and enjoy entertaining and influencing their crowds while having fun making music together.

The last concert of the summer is a sing-a-long with the Way Off Broads Aug. 27, at 8 p.m.

All are welcome to come out for the Hurricane Valley Summer Concerts in the Park. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, friends and family. Come relax and enjoy.
