During that time, food and drinks will be available. Steamy Joe also will offer free adult coloring.


Lane Turgeon

Turgeon is a musician and a follower of Christ from Winfield.

He has played in several bands, including jazz combos, symphonies — such as the Wichita Symphony — and solo acts.

Turgeon chiefly plays bass, but he said he enjoys playing whatever he can get his hands on.


Seth Girton

Girton hails from Wichita, where he began studying cello at the age of 9 under the tutelage of Susan Mayo.

He was an active participant in the Wichita Symphony Youth Orchestras program for six years.

Girton then pursued a degree in mathematics at Oberlin College, where he also performed extensively.

He received his master of music degree from Emporia State University, and maintains an active performance schedule with Wichita’s Friends University Community Orchestra and the Newton Mid-Kansas Symphony Orchestra, in each of which he is acting principal.

Girton also has spent several years exploring nontraditional and experimental cello techniques, and sharing them at venues in the Wichita area.

He particularly enjoys raising awareness of the cello and its potential at local coffee and public houses.

Girton now is the instructor of cello at both Hesston and Bethel colleges, and also at the Bethel College Academy of Performing Arts in Newton.


David Cantu

Cantu hails from Winfield and is the third of 12 children.

While attending Winfield High School, he was a member of the choral program, which gave him ample opportunities to compete in solo voice competitions and even take part in the Kansas State Honor Choir two years in a row.

Cantu attended Friends University for a short while after graduation, before moving back to work in Winfield and to be close to family.
