The Navels encourage audience participation during their shows, and many youngsters — as well as adults — took to the stage to join the band at certain times during the show.

The next concert will be Gunsmoke (country music) on Wednesday, July 23 from 7=9 p.m. at the Huntington Green. The summer outdoor concert series is organized by the Shelton Parks and Recreation Department.
