Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

The J Band will play a free, donation-based show at the Island Grill at the Frisco Bay Marina on Thursday, June 12. Jordan “J” Lindsey describes the band’s sound as “pretty much the music Bob Marley and Bob Dylan would make after taking tequila shots together.” The J Band started more than 10 years ago at an acoustic open mic night, and its trademark sound — combining kick-heavy drums with acoustic guitars and instruments such as ukulele and steel drums — embraces the sun-soaked surf of their California home. Their energetic live shows and high-spin rate on Pandora have earned them a dedicated following across the country. Happy hour runs from 4 to 7 p.m., and the music starts at 6 p.m. Visit for more information.
