Stagelights Presents “Rock the Park,” a free, three-hour rock concert featuring two bands on stage at Azalea Park at 1:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 25.
The five-piece rock band Point Taken will perform a mix of cover songs by artists such as Santana, Tom Petty, Eagles, Beatles, Rolling Stones, ZZ Top and Bad Company. The band, with members from Brookings and Crescent City, has entertained crowds at various festivals and public events in both cities.
The Joint Chiefs, from Crescent City, is known regionwide for its funk-driven, psychedelic jams with a touch of blues, rock and even rap. The four-piece band features two guitarists, a drummer and a bass player who often break into spacey, extended improvisational versions of originals and cover songs.
Concert-goers should bring their own seating or blankets. Low-priced refreshments will be available, with all proceeds benefitting Stagelights Musical Arts Community. All city park rules must be observed, including that dogs must be leashed and that there be no alcoholic beverages.
In case of bad weather, the concert will move indoors to The Rink, at the corner of Railroad and Center streets in Brookings.
Stagelights Musical Arts Community is a nonprofit organization operated by a volunteer board. Any and all donations will benefit Stagelights’ music outreach and education programs, and efforts to present live music events in Curry County.
