Jammin' Biscuits to perform in Peabody

Gospel group Jammin’ Biscuits will perform at 6 p.m. Sept. 27 for this month’s Sleepy Creek Concert Series at Santa Fe Park, downtown Peabody.

The series began a year ago to bring musical entertainment to Peabody and raise money for a public bathroom in the park. The last Sunday of each month, from June to October, a different group performs, and each group represents a different musical genre.

More than 100 music lovers gather for food, entertainment, and camaraderie. The series is a cooperative effort between Peabody Main Street Association and Partners of Peabody Parks.

Based in McPherson, Jammin’ Biscuits features Gerry Roberts on mandolin and lead vocals. Gerry spent 20 years singing in southern gospel quartets “The Lamplighters” and “Testimony”. His quartets shared the stage with southern gospel greats such as “The Dixie Melody Boys,” “The Lesters,” and “The Nelons.” His wife, Tracey, who sings harmonies with the group, joins Gerry.

In addition, Nick Johnson is featured on the banjo, Newton native Gary Roberts on bass guitar, Tom Unruh on guitar, and Rollin Schmidt of Goessel on dobro guitar.

The concert and a light meal are available by donation. Attendees should bring lawn chairs.
