Cooper-Young hosts Wednesday night summer concert series
Spend your Wednesdays this summer in Cooper-Young with the neighborhood’s music concert series, showcasing a broad range of 11 local bands, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. each Wednesday in June, July and August. The concerts take place at the gazebo at the intersection of Cooper Street and Young Avenue.
To get the party started, Robbie and The Bandanas, a three-piece combo playing Jimmy Buffet songs will play June 5. Four groups with Navy Band Mid-South will be among seven bands that will play. The Navy Band Mid-South groups are: Freedom, a high-energy rock band with a hit-music repertoire spanning 50 years; Underway, a New Orleans-style brass band; Blues City Brass, a brass quintet playing Broadway hits and popular music of today; and the VIP Combo performing a variety of jazz and instrumental tunes.
Throughout the summer, enjoy the blues/rock funky soul of the River City Revival, the sultry voice of Cherry Brooks along with Cal Jackson on the guitar, the rockabilly style of the Side Street Steppers, the talented rock and roll of School of Rock Memphis, the wholesome indie folk of the Sibella Band and Standby for Mars with their unique blend of original jazz tunes.
