The Mark Sexton Band will headline a concert opened by local singer Vanessa Littrell at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park on Sunday.
Sexton, who plays the guitar and sings vocals, is joined by bassist Alex Korostinsky and drummer Dan Weiss. The group has been playing in clubs and concert venues across the West, and this is their second year performing at the Dangberg Historic Park.
Vanessa Littrell opens the evening at 5 p.m. Talented on both piano and guitar, Littrell’s style ranges from Sheryl Crow to Annie Lennox with a little Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos on the side.
The Dangberg Summer Sunday Concert Series is sponsored by Bently Enterprises, SoaringNV, Douglas County, the Frances C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation, American Family Insurance Mark Smith Agency, Joyce’s Fine Jewelry, Bing Materials, Borges Carriage Rides, Dr. James the Dentist, Nevada State Bank and Pit Stop Pots.
The Carson Valley Lions Club will be selling burgers (including veggie burgers), hot dogs, popcorn and ice cold beverages. Beer and wine will be available for purchase from the Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch. Visitors should bring their own outdoor seating, and can bring their own food and beverage if they choose.
