Summer Concert Series

This year will mark the tenth anniversary of our Summer Concert Series! All concerts are free and open to the public. We'll have food available for purchase from Cafe J, or you can bring a picnic! We'll also have a cash bar, so please, no outside alcohol.

All Concerts begin at 7 PM! Our schedule for this summer:

June 21 - Heaps n' Heaps

(Rock/Pop) Heaps n' Heaps can be translated to 'lots and lots' and so to can the band be understood through that translation. The band is culled from a lot of influences, a lot of passion, a lot of diversity, a lot of grooves, a lot of melody, a lot of harmony and a lot of soul. It is made from a lot of hard work and dedication; a lot of pain and a lot of trial and error. Heaps n Heaps want to be on stage performing the songs they have written and love for people who carry the light hearted openness that leaves no one in this world excluded. Heaps n Heaps is for everyone, the whole lot of you who want to feel good and leave behind a world that is better than when you found it.

Thus far in 2017, Heaps n Heaps have released a new EP entitled, ‘New Heart’. They have also played the McDowell Mountain Music Festival where they shared the stage with The Shins, Grouplove, Flume, Government Mule, Lettuce, and many more. They are currently recording in between touring as they continue to push for truth and love in uncertain times.

July 12 - Otter Creek

(Celtic Music) With 10 instruments between them and 53 strings to tune, Otter Creek burst onto the national Folk scene in 2012 with back-to-back hit albums on the Folk Charts. Since that time, they've seen a TV placement on the season 6 finale of TLC's Sister Wives, and the top single of their current album, "The Fiddle Preacher", debuted at #10 on the Folk DJ charts. Otter Creek has won multiple awards for their virtuosic instrumentals, adept songwriting, and visionary arrangements of traditional and original tunes. They have drawn praise from around the country leading one critic to describe them as “a duo that is both a technical marvel and tastefully perfect.” They use their “superb musicianship underpinned by stunning technique” to perform “songs that appeal to the heart and mind as well as the ear.” (Greg Harness, Rootsworld Magazine).

August 9 - The Fabulous Flynnstones

(Funk/Jazz) The Fabulous Flynnstones are a group of veteran players based in Salt Lake City, Utah, who bring together decades of inspiration to fuse jazz, rock, funk, and latin, into their own brand of originals and select covers. You'll hear familiar melodies from the illustrious past of jazz and rock, spun into lively adventurous renditions, energized with soul and a deep appreciation for the groove.
