Free concerts in Mercerdale Park

Mostly Music in the Park, the free series of concerts stretching from mid-July into August, begins this week.

Soul Kata, a jazz-rhythm and blues group, kicks off the series on Thursday, July 14. The quartet features singer Katrina Wible, a 1998 graduate of Mercer Island High School.

The band, which appears frequently in Seattle night spots, mixes standards such as George Gershwin's ``Summertime'' with rock ballads like Jimi Hendrix's ``Angel.''

Lately the group has added originals, such as ``So True,'' a love song Wible wrote for her boyfriend.

Appearing Sunday, July 17, will be Shambala, a Three Dog Night tribute band.

Next week on Thursday, July 21, Incendio, featuring Latin guitar and world fusion, will appear. On Sunday, July 24, Show Brazil -- Brazilian music and dance -- will perform.

Concerts start at 7 p.m. The shows will go on in a light drizzle, but not in a downpour.
