Powerful guitar and vocals to captivate audience at Hutchins Street Square

Lodi, Calif -- (July 1, 2003) - Lodi’s own Under the Columns Series, welcomes guitarist/vocalist David Zink to this month’s outdoor concert at Hutchins Street Square.

Sponsored by the Lodi Arts Project Fund in conjunction with the Lodi Arts Commission, the concert will take place July 12th, Saturday evening in Wishek Amphitheatre at Hutchins Street Square.

David Zink’s unique and diverse blend of acoustic folk, rock, gospel and jazz summons a passionate energy reminiscent of Bruce Cockburn, U2, Peter Gabriel, and David Byrne, but in a style all his own.

Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica, he proves himself to be a captivating performer.
