Acoustic duo Bobby & Faith will perform for the Music in the Parks outdoor summer concert series at 7 p.m. tonight at the Boardman Marina Park, located off N. Main Street on Marine Drive.
Bobby Nelson and Faith Martin met in Echo in the summer of 2004 onstage at an outdoor concert. Bobby was filling in for a friend’s band, when in the middle of the show they decided to call Faith up on stage to sing a few! That was the beginning of something beautiful and their relationship has spanned almost 15 years.
They play classic rock and pop favorites. Faith & Bobby have fantastic musical chemistry on and off stage and are the best of friends. They love to rock it with the band The Shades, but also like to take it down a notch and perform all your favorites acoustically.
