Here are some fun First State events to dive into this weekend.
1. Party band Mike Hines and The Look will get folks groovin’ during Kent County Public Library’s celebration of their new mobile library.
The Look is known for serving generous amounts R&B, hip-hop, pop and funk, along with a dab of disco and Motown.
One of the things people enjoy most about their performance is when the DJ stops playing, frontman Mike Hines keeps the party going and the band doesn’t miss a beat. The crew has received numerous awards and honors over the years and has developed a following from several generations.
Mike Hines and The Look will get down at Kent County Public Library, 497 S. Red Haven Lane, Dover from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday. COST Free. INFO Visit Kent County Public Library on Facebook or 744-1919.
