Concert on the Square

Monroe Main Street is promoting a new Concerts on the Square series this summer. These concerts were extremely popular last year, and they are back by popular demand. There have been two scheduled for each June, July and August.

The first June concert has already happened, but the second takes place tonight. The Stateline Playboys takes the stage on the north side of the Square at 6:30 for a two hour concert with the theme of A Trip Through Rock-and-Roll History. Boxed suppers will be offered by the downtown restaurants, and many of the downtown merchants will be open until 6:30.

The July concerts will be on July 10 and July 24. July 10 brings us Saxtet Plus - Best of the Big Band Sound. If you like big band, be sure to come out for this one! They feature five saxophones, six to eight brass, full rhythm section, and a vocalist. Personally, I love swing and big band, so I am really looking forward to this one. Clear Blue Betty returns on July 24 for an encore of last year's tremendously popular performance. Energetic and upbeat, Clear Blue Betty's music is sure to get your toes tapping and bring a smile to your face.

Bring a lawn chair or a picnic blanket, pack up dinner or buy a boxed supper, bring the kids or come alone, but come out to Monroe's square for these concerts. They are high quality, free entertainment in our own backyard.
