Bed of Roses performs Friday

Experimental jazz and rock group Bed of Roses performs at 6 p.m. Friday, May 13, in the Homer Council on the Arts gallery. Admission is by donation at the door.

Bed of Roses is an experimental jazz/rock quintet that doesn’t hold itself to the above mentioned genre. These local boys play only original music and have put in the work to have a defined yet eclectic sound. A passion for perfection, a love for their labor, shine through their music.

Masks are required. Homer Kombucha on Tap will be available for purchase thanks to Home Run Oil.
