SKIPPER'S SMOKEHOUSE: Skipper's will host two bands Sunday, both with school-aged musicians.

All five members of the band participate in both lead and backup vocals, and the band has performed at Guavaween, the USF Sun Dome and Lowry Park. Unexpected Guest, formerly Blue Pandemonium, will also play. The members of this trio are 13, 14 and 14 years old. Their influences include Ozzy Ozborne, Led Zeppelin, Blink-182 and Green Day. The show consists of covers of '80s and contemporary music, as well as originals written by the bands. Showtime is 5 p.m. at Skipper's Smokehouse, 910 Skipper Road. Tickets are $5 for all ages.
