The Leopard Girls will perform their eclectic blend of jazz, rock, blues, and pop music in a benefit concert for the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Brunswick on Friday, October 6, at 7:30PM.
Leopard Girls is a five-piece act from Maine. Chris Simpson, Scott Woodruff, and Gary Lawless – formerly of Jimmy Midnight and The Yurtbirds – make up the band’s front half on guitars, bass, and vocals. Songwriter and recording artist Ben Hunsberger (welcomefarmmusic.com) brings his melodies to the keyboard, and drummer Hal Ahlers of Blues Buzzards rounds out the band’s rhythm section.
