Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco will welcome Funk Trek on Thursday, Sept. 18. The funk of the Omaha-based ensemble is something that boils and flows through a century of urban America’s artistic bloodstream. In six-minute songs dominated by horn pops and bass solos, there’s a range of temperaments that could spark a small-scale high school dance revolt or could send up a nightclub in musical flames with a three-hour set. The technical proficiency simply needs to decide what outfit it wants to wear. Doors open for the free show at 9 p.m. Visit for more information.
