In spite of the summer heat, the Reston Town Center free summer concerts still prove to be quite the draw for locals. The concert on July 6 was no exception as crowds gathered at the Town Center’s pavilion and went as far back as the fountain for the evening’s entertainment: David Akers and the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra.

The Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra played several sets, with David Akers accompanying a few of the songs. After a brief intermission, the David Akers Band took over with some classic crowd-pleasers such as “Sweet Caroline” and “My Girl.”

The concert series will continue Saturday evenings at 7:30 until Aug. 24. For more information, visit www.restontowncenter.com.
