The concert is a tribute to Kerry Layton who passed away in 2007, at the age of 53, of leukemia. Layton was a leader in the music community and a bass player in many local bands through the years.

Local musicians look forward to this event all year and the celebration grows larger each year,” said Curtis Pickering, co-sponsor of the Crème Brulee Music Festival. The Kerry Layton Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship established in Layton’s honor, will be awarded to a high school senior in the Blue Valley School District who participates in band.
