Willie Nininger Trio Headlines at First Thursday!

Willie 2

Singer-songwriter-guitarist Willie Nininger, keyboardist John Kuhner, and drummer Ken Melton have gained a huge following in Southwest Connecticut! Seeing them perform at September's First Thursday we now know why, and we've brought them back by popular demand! Willie's clear vibrant voice is equally talented whether playing blue-grass, country, well-known oldies or original compositions, and no one can resist the hilarious interchange between the performers. Get ready for a foot-tapping good time as they play a medley of Valentines tunes! You'll laugh, hum along, and maybe even get up on the dance floor!
