Jill’s Cashbox emerged on the scene in 2011 when three musicians/friends (Hunter Smith, Shannon Fetherman and Jeff Sweat) came together and started writing original music telling the story of their lives and of those around them. The band was later finalized with the addition of Rob Gundling, Joey Antrim and Greg Martin completing the band known today as Jills Cashbox.
The band has shared the stage with acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sarah Evans, Dierks Bentley, Alan Jackson, Big and Rich, Colt Ford, Sheryl Crow and dozen of other national performers. Their music ranges from whiskey sipping honkey-tonk to hard driving county rock and roll. With something for just about every country music fan out there, their show is guaranteed to be a high-energy good time for all who attend.
The music series takes place at the Lake Mirror amphitheater, which is between Hollis Garden and the Lake Mirror Center. The event is FREE to the public and families are encouraged to attend so bring a blanket and enjoy the lake setting with music under the stars. Music on the Promenade is proudly sponsored by the City of Lakeland. Parking is available at the Lake Mirror Center's parking lot and in the Iowa Avenue parking garage. No glass bottles within the park please. For more information regarding the series, contact Kevin Cook at 863/834-6264.
