The St. Charles Park District’s Summer Concerts in the Park series is underway with five bands scheduled in July.
The best summer fun – dancing in the park – is held every Thursday at 7 pm in Lincoln Park, located on Main Street between 4th and 5th Streets. Chairs and blankets are encouraged, as is arriving early to secure a great spot.
In the event of inclement weather, concerts will move to the Arcada Theater, 105 E. Main St.
The month of July kicks off with Mr. Myers on July 10. Mr. Myers blends the tropical sounds of calypso and ska, the rhythms of reggae and a little rock-n-roll. The band performs favorite classic tunes, but set to their own Caribbean rock style.
On July 17, Just South of Heaven will take the stage. Specializing in today’s Americana Country music, this band features two powerhouse vocals, a cellist and violinist. The band covers songs from The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, Sugarland, Mellencamp and more. Be prepared to sing along when they perform “Ho Hey” and “Wagon Wheel.”
Dec8de will perform on July 24. Paying homage to the first wave of alternative music with classic hits featured on John Hughes movie soundtracks and MTV’s 120 Minutes, Dec8de delivers an enthusiastic and energetic show. Their material from synth-based and guitar-driven bands have helped define genres like New Wave, Alternative and College Rock.
July 31 delivers a double feature with Serendipity performing from 5:30 to 7pm and the popular 7th Heaven from 7:30 to 9pm. Serendipity, an all-girl band, will deliver cover hits like “Forget You,” “Rolling in the Deep,” and “We Are Young.”
7th Heaven is known for playing dead on renditions of Def Leppard, The Beatles, Bon Jovi, Journey and more.
