Second Sunday concert draws people to Coleman Hill

A crowd of more than a hundred people came out to Coleman Hill Park on Sunday evening for free music and fun provided by a Second Sunday concert.

The collaborative effort by the College Hill Alliance group and the all-volunteer Bragg Jam organization featured an artist from Savannah known as Zack Deputy.

Deputy, a one-man band, played entire songs by using a guitar and keyboard simultaneously on stage.

His genre is that of a Caribbean James Brown, said C.J. Portolese, his tour manager.

“I’ve seen him 200 times in the past year,” Portolese, said. “I’m tired, but never bored.”

Everett Verner, president of the Bragg Jam organization, said they were thrilled to have someone such as Deputy perform during Second Sunday.

Verner added that Bragg Jam is gearing up for its annual music festival July 25 and that tickets are still available at www.braggjam.org.

“We’re just really excited to have the 16th annual Bragg Jam Festival in two weeks,” he said.
