The N Tunes performed at Maitland Art Center's Culture & Cocktails Summer Concert Series.

Art and History Museums (231 W Packwood Ave, Maitland, FL) has a Summer Concert Series as part of their monthly Culture and Cocktails event. This sketch of the N Tunes was done at the July 2014 event. When I arrived the band was still setting up the sound equipment. It was the golden hour, a time when the warm light gets more intense and orange as the sun sets. Large live oaks and palm trees kept the stage shaded, but a bright magenta stage light illuminated the stage. By the time the band started performing, the stage and background were blocked in with pencil.

As with most Culture and Cocktail events, there was also poetry being read across the street in the Mayan Courtyard. New art exhibits had also opened to the public. Although I would love to be everywhere at once, I have to limit myself to focusing one one thing a a time. Sketching takes time.

N Tunes website describes the band as "performing songs from Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Adele, Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas, Kid Rock and everything in between that’s currently topping the charts, this 5 piece powerhouse of a group lays it down with style. Having the N-Tunes perform at your venue or event is like having all of the current top 4Art the consummate party band. With a wealth of popular material to pull from, they can tailor their performance to meet your needs."

Finding information about the performers wass close to impossible. All I could find out online is that the lead singer is Natalie Wright.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
