The lineup for Main Street Live is taking shape with the return of some local favorites and some new bands to the stage.
“We’re very excited about this year,” said Main Street McMinnville co-executive director Brook Holmes. “We will release the full lineup soon.”
Returning to the summer concert series will be Joe Harvey, Four on the Floor, and Utopia. In 2015, the Joe Harvey Band closed the concert series and Four on the Floor offered a beach party theme. Utopia was last on the Main Street Live stage in 2014 offering classic rhythm and blues dance music, modern hits, selected oldies, jazz and blues.
While the other bands are being kept secret until they are finalized, Holmes did say, “Everyone else is brand new. We’re going to hit as many genres as possible to include classic country, rock country, bluegrass, R&B, rock, and a Journey tribute band.”
Also returning could be opening acts for each concert.
“We’re also considering having opening acts for each concert consisting of a singer/songwriter local to the area,” said Holmes. “They will do a 30-minute set before each concert to give them a little bit of time to shine.”
Concerts are offered free to the public thanks to sponsorships.
Main Street Live is family oriented musical entertainment offered on Friday nights at 7 p.m. throughout June and July. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited and smoking is not allowed in the crowd. All animals need to be leashed and owners must clean up after their pets.
The concert series is a production of Main Street McMinnville and offered on the West Lawn of Security Federal.
