Dust off your boots and grab your cowboy hat because the Main Street Live summer concert series kicks off with country music June 10.
Clayton Q was born in Kentucky. During high school, he’d perform at local restaurants for tips. Since that humble beginning, he has traveled on tour with some of the industry’s biggest artists. His singles include “Save Myself,” “You Left Me,” “Drive,” and “Blue Collar ’Merica.”
Free, thanks to generous sponsorships, the Friday night concert series is organized by Main Street McMinnville. Concerts begins at 7 p.m. on the West Lawn of Security Federal Savings Bank on Main Street. Concessions open at 6 p.m.
An eight-week series continues on June 17 with NashTones. The five-member band offers a wide range of music from Soul, Funk, Rock, Country, Southern Rock, Bluegrass and Jazz. Among its vast playlist are “Uptown Funk,” “Soul Man,” “Shout,” “Feelin’ Alright,” “Love Train,” “Knock on Wood,” “Boy Toy,” and “Stray Cat Strut.”
Next will be Caryl Mack Parker. Out of Nashville, the Abilene, Texas native is a storyteller with the genre Americana.
July’s performances include Joe Harvey Band with rock, Entice with Motown and R&B, Forever Abby Road with a Beatles Tribute, and Bicho Brothers with classic 1970s rock.
MixTape, an ’80s Tribute Band, will end the 2022 summer concert season on July 29. The band has shared the stage with Rick Springfield, .38 Special, Foreigner, Mickey Thomas and Starship, KISS, Brett Michaels, and Chicago.
Parking is free. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy.
