Did you make it to Finally Friday last night at the Riverview Bandshell?
If you didn’t, there’s still a chance to come out and get into the concert groove tonight. (Even if you did, you might still want to spend some time outdoors enjoying the weekend.)
The Clinton LumberKings Concert Series kicks off tonight with “Rolling Thunder,” an AC/DC tribute band. Come see the LumberKings take on the Peoria Chiefs first and stay after the game for the postgame concert with an ’80s night theme.
It is the first of the LumberKings concert series that throughout the summer also will feature:
n Stone Cold Moonshine on Saturday, June 9.
n Free Fallin’ — a Tom Petty tribute band on Friday, June 15, with Kluseman and Steil opening.
n Todd Striley & the Noize on Saturday, June 23.
n Bowman, Pickney and Evans on Tuesday, July 3.
n Southern Ride on Saturday, July 28.
n The Slough Buoys on Saturday, Aug. 4.
n Lexi Paar on Saturday, Aug. 25.
Tickets to games on Stay Late Saturdays are good for postgame concerts. For those looking to attend the bonus concerts at the ballpark June 15 and July 3, tickets can be purchased by calling 242-0727, visiting lumberkings.com, or by stopping by Ashford University Field’s front office.
Then on Sunday, head down to the Clinton Symphony Orchestra’s annual June Pops Concert that starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Riverview Bandshell in Clinton. The concert is free and open to the public. The program will include light music from the stage, screen and TV, as well as patriotic music and marches.
Forty-five musicians of the orchestra and conductor Brian Dollinger will perform in the concert, which marks the end of the Symphony’s 64th concert season.
It’s been a weekend of music in Riverview Park, but there’s still time to hear more thanks to the volunteers and musicians who have committed themselves to bringing entertainment to Clinton.
