July 2024 Free Summer Concert Preview

There's an extra Tuesday in July this year, which means there aren't the usual four but rather FIVE free summer concerts this month! Beth Bombara got July started off right with an incredible show last Tuesday; don't miss the remaining four concerts at the bandshell, all of which are previewed below.

Speaking of extra concerts, last month's storm and extended power outage forced us to reschedule Magic Bus from their June performance date to Tuesday, August 20. Magic Bus is always one of our most popular acts and we're looking forward to extending the concert season by a week so we can close out with a performance from them.

As a reminder, we have a kid's craft activity at every concert and there are bike racks available if you're planning to arrive on two wheels. The Free Summer Concert Series takes place every Tuesday through August 20 at the Whitehall-Montague Rotary Bandshell. The rain location for this and all remaining free summer concerts is the Whitehall High School auditorium at 3100 White Lake Drive.

A big thank you to our individual sponsors and our main series sponsors, CatchMark Technologies and the Michael James family, whose contributions make this concert series possible.
