DOWNTOWN BELMONT PLANNING SUMMER MUSIC SERIES
A Variety of Music Genres To Be Showcased at Party in the Park
Belmont, North Carolina – Beautiful, historic Stowe Park will set the scene for a new music series in Downtown Belmont. The Downtown Belmont Development Association (DBDA) will sponsor five concerts, beginning with Jazz in the Park on Saturday May 6, following the daytime Art Crawl from 12 – 4 pm. The remaining concerts will be held every other Friday, starting May 19 with the final concert on June 30 being moved to Main Street for the Independence Celebration and fireworks display.
The DBDA aspires to introduce a new audience of music lovers to Downtown Belmont by diversifying the music genres. Two of the planned concerts will feature the traditional beach music with the other two concerts including a local country band and a Beatles tribute band. A beverage garden, food trucks, and kid’s activity zone are planned for each concert.
The 2017 Party in the Park band line-up includes:
Jazz in the Park – May 6 (Booker Wilson Band; Tootie Hogan Band)
Coming Up Brass - May 19
Liverpool Experience - June 2
Bakkwoodz - June 16
The Extraordinaires - June 30
Belmont has established a long-standing, favorable reputation for its Friday Night Live concert series over the last decade. The decision of the Belmont Merchants Association to discontinue the popular concert series prompted the DBDA to plan a new music event series, rather than allowing a season without downtown concerts. “We hope to build upon the success of the Friday Night Live series that the Belmont Merchants Association ran for ten years”, stated DBDA Chairman, John Church. “Their hard work and dedication has brilliantly showcased our community for so many years, putting Downtown Belmont on the map”, Church added.
