The Fenton Arts & Culture Commission is presenting its Spring Fever evening of music on Thursday, May 19, from 7 to 9 p.m., in the Recreation Room of the Fenton Community and Cultural Center.

 The band performing will be Me + Joe Smith. The Detroit band describes its sound as “funky fresh soul with a folkabilly flow.” There’s a little bit of everything — roots, rock, reggae, country, R&B and hip hop. They rock jams by everybody from Johnny Cash to Snoop Dogg, and their own songs, too. Their shows are known to be fun and lively events that get everybody moving.

 Eric Szczepanski, a member of the Fenton commission, said the group was excited to help usher back live events in the city.

 “Also known as the Cabin Fever, the annual series has been a great opportunity to invite people downtown during the winter and spring months to visit the community center for an evening of fellowship. We’ve had a variety of artists and bands perform since the series started in 2019,” Szczepanski, who co-chairs the event, said.

 The event is sponsored by the city of Fenton Downtown Development Authority, Fenton Community and Cultural Center, and by a matching grant from Share Art Genesee. Tickets are $15 and available to purchase on Fenton.Arts.eventbrite.com or will be available at the door. Light hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine will be provided.
