Acoustic and soft rock band Bridges along with special musical guests take the Towngate stage at 8 p.m. May 26.

Together since 2005, this three-part harmony group, featuring talented vocalists Kim Butler, Doug Pettit and Dave Pettit, always draws a crowd and will provide an evening of memories with classic rock sounds from artists like the Eagles; the Beatles; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and Van Morrison; plus contemporary favorites like the Zac Brown Band.

During the 1970s, Kim Butler was half of Kim and Ed, one of the top musical duos in the tri-state area. Playing the club circuit, the duo performed at popular Wheeling nightspots as well as clubs in Pittsburgh and throughout the Midwest.

Butler, an exercise physiology instructor at Ohio University Eastern, remains active in the Ohio Valley music scene, and each year gathers his talented friends for an evening of entertainment at Towngate.

Doug and Dave Pettit played for years locally with the band Sweet Harmony. They came together with Butler in 2005 to form Bridges.

The show lasts about two hours, and refreshments are available.

There is a fee for admission. Members of Oglebay Institute receive a discount. Call 304-242-7700 for more information and to purchase tickets, or visit www.
