Red Hot Summer Music Series in CY

Are you ready for a Red Hot Summer? If you are, then spend your summer in Cooper Young at our music concert series that will showcase a mix of local talent with a broad spectrum of music genres each Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in June, July and August.  Over 40 local musicians and their bands will play and help you unwind on Wednesdays this summer at the Gazebo.  The Gazebo is located at the intersection of Cooper Street and Young Avenue.

We are proud of our local armed forces and celebrate the music of the Navy Band Mid-South, who will be joining us this summer along with 7 other bands.  Navy Band Mid-South has four groups that will be with us this summer, they 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 to the popular music of today and the VIP Combo performing a variety of jazz and instrumental tunes.

To get the party started, Robbie and The Bandanas, a three piece combo playing Jimmy Buffet songs will be here June 5.  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 n roll of School of Rock Memphis, the wholesome indie folk of the Sibella Band and Standby for Mars for their unique blend of original jazz tunes.
