June 13, 2010, Frederick, MD – Opening the 2010 Summer Concert Series at the Baker Park Bandshell in Frederick, Maryland is Ted Garber, with his captivating and unique brand of “Blues Americana Rock”. This Frederick native combines his smoky and bluesy vocals, howling harmonica riffs and screaming guitar licks to create a diverse musical journey for audiences worldwide. This free live performance, presented by Celebrate Frederick, Inc., begins at 7:00 p.m.

Ted Garber started his career while attending Tulane University. He balanced schoolwork with his passion for playing by performing covers on the streets of New Orleans for tips. Inspired by the vibrancy of the city and realizing his natural ability to connect with a crowd, he polished his talent for original material. He became a full-time singer and songwriter, and went on to open for the likes of Pat McGee. Since then, he performed in venues as diverse as DC’s legendary 9.30 Club, The Viper Room, and Bluebird Cafe. He is often compared to the likes of Bob Marley and Bob Dylan.

Garber was also named “DC’s Top Entertainer” by WUSA-Channel 9, and won On-Tap Magazine’s Battle of the Bands “Taste of Arlington” Competition.

All Summer Concert Series performances are free to the public, but the Summer Concert Series Committee encourages you to bring a canned food item in lieu of admission. All items collected benefit the Frederick Food Bank.
