Uver is an eclectic Denton band that plays a little rock, a little folk and lots of laid-back guitar work.

Denton pop-rock band Uver plays Twilight Tunes at 6:30 p.m. Thursday on the Courthouse on the Square lawn.

Uver is the brainchild of Denton musician Fritz Schwalm, who assembles a changing roster of local musicians to flesh out Uver’s sound. Schwalm started the act when his previous band, Band Schmand, broke up. Under the moniker of Uver, Schwalm crafts laid-back tunes that recall the confident guitar phrasing and melodies of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. It’s easy listening with an injection of alt-rock twang. Uver is Evan Jacobs on keyboards, Lynn Luck on vocals, Nathan Phelps on bass, Schwalm on guitar and vocals and Matt Thompson on drums.

Twilight Tunes concerts take place rain or shine, but in the event of heavy rains on Wednesdays or Thursdays, visitors can find out if the concert has been moved to a rain location by following Denton Main Street’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, or by checking on the organization’s website at www.dentonmainstreet.org/ twilight-tunes at noon the day of the concert.

Attendees are encouraged to dine at or get takeout from nearby restaurants before or after the concerts. Some Thursdays, a bounce house is on the courthouse lawn for families. The concert series ends this year with a closing show on June 27.

Up on May 16: Color of Time, with grooves from the 1960s and ’70s British Invasion, psychedelic and garage rock.
