Concert series begins in Newark

June 16, 2017 by  

The Mayor’s Summer Concert Series is getting underway. The series, an annual event, has been a great success, giving attendees the opportunity to hear and see some of the best musicians in Ohio. Admittance to all concerts is free and, even better, door prizes are awarded at each concert, throughout the entire evening.

The series comprises six concerts which are held on Mondays during the summer months of June, July, and August. Jeff Hall, Newark’s mayor, as well as the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, have partnered to continue this popular summer attraction. The concerts are held in Canal Market Plaza, and attendees are urged to bring their own refreshments, and a lawn chair or blanket, and enjoy the music.

Earlier this week, on June 12, 2017, the audience was treated to the music of the Full Count Jazz Band. Upcoming concerts are as follows: on June 26, 2017, the performers are the Roscoe Transit Authority, playing classic oldies. On July 10, the Licking County 4-H Band is on tap; on July 24, it’s the Jim Lovejoy Band, and on July 31, Michael Rose provides the music. On August 14, the series ends with Trombones Plus.

Events like these can benefit if organizers work with a flyer printing company to create a series of handouts for audience members, one for each concert, listing the program and giving some information about the band.
