Local teens to play at Saturday Night Music venue in Carbondale

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Teens from Carbondale, Carterville and Murphysboro will play at the Saturday Night Music venue in Carbondale, Illinois.

The band, Mystic Shrines, consists of eight members who play harmonica, drums, auxiliary, percussion, piano, bass and saxophone. 

"We are a jam band, and we like to experiment," lead guitarist, Everett Gariepy said. "Everyone plays in our high school bands, but we enjoy getting away from reading sheet music and learning specific parts for our instruments. It's all about having fun with music."

Saturday Night Music is part of a growing trend for teens and young adults in southern Illinois.

Mystic Shrines are scheduled to perform on August 13 at 8 p.m. at the Dayemi Community Center.

The venue is known for being an alcohol and drug-free zone place for all ages.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and there is a $5 cover.

Concessions and merchandise will be available for purchase, as well.
