Idaho Botanical Garden

Thursday, June 8
6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Band: Smooth Avenue

Smooth Avenue Band is a relatively new group in the Treasure Valley but quickly
establishing a positive response from local venues and attendees. Smooth specializes in
listenable and danceable Blues, Motown/R&B and light rock. Join JT and crew in kicking off the 2017 Great Garden Escape season!

Connect with friends and family at our weekly Great Garden Escapes. Music has the
power to bring people together and we think that’s worth celebrating. Each week we
will be featuring either Great Garden Escape classics, or exciting new bands we hope
you will love as much as we do! Local restaurants, breweries, and wineries will be
onsite to help make for an entertaining night that’s both relaxing and fun!

Great Garden Escape is every Thursday evening, June through September and features upbeat dancing music and friends.

Bring your own low back chairs or blanket.  Picnic baskets are welcome or  guests can purchase  selections from the on-site food and beverage vendors.
