Brookings’ free summer “Concerts in the Park” series kicks off it’s 24th season at 1 p.m. Sunday with Night Moves, a tribute to classic rock powerhouse groups Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
The six-piece band performs Seger’s biggest hits such as “Old Time Rock and Roll,” “Turn The Page,” “Like A Rock,” “Against The Wind,” “Hollywood Nights” and “Main Street.” The band also covers the greatest hits of Creedence Clearwater Revival with “Down on the Corner,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Lodi,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Proud Mary” and “Green River.”
“Night Moves features two powerful lead singers: One who replicates the vocals of Bob Seger; the other who sings like John Fogerty of CCR,” said Scott Graves, talent agent for the nonprofit American Music Festival, which hosts the series. “They have a high-energy live show and it’s a great way to kickoff the summer.”
The Azalea Park concert, presented by main sponsor Rogue Credit Union, is the first of eight schedule through September, and music fans are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnic lunches. Each concert attracts 500 to 1,200 people to the park’s natural amphitheater. The snack shack, operated by the Brookings-Harbor Rotary Club, will offer burgers, hot dogs, chips and beverages. The weather forecast for Sunday is sunny with a high near 70 degrees.
This series is funded primarily by crowd donations, grants and local business sponsors, including Rogue Credit Union, Good Samaritan Society-Curry Village, Dave Miesner, D&D Oasis Beach House, Elk Valley Rancheria, Evergreen Federal Bank, Fitness at the Club, Hearing Health Care, Inc. and the Curry County Cultural Grant.
The next concert is Sunday, June 23, featuring the Buddy Holly Review, a four-piece band that pays tribute to the great hits of the 1950s including blistering rendition of “That’ll Be The Day,” “Peggy Sue,” “Not Fade Away,” and “Oh Boy.”
