Summer concerts for the 2020 season include:

Saturday, June 6 – Weberfest featuring Brian Fallon & The Howling Weather with special guest Aaron Lee TasjanBrian Fallon’s rock star days are firmly behind him. His former outfit, The Gaslight Anthem, reunited for a string of reunion shows in 2018 but now only exists in that murky grey area known as “indefinite hiatus.” Now, with his latest album “Local Honey,” Fallon has made the record he has always wanted to make. Its acoustic-leaning, introspective, singer-songwriter artistry is a heartfelt and grownup sound that has been in his mind and in his heart for a long while.

Saturday, June 13 – Carver Center Summer Celebration featuring Monsters of Yacht, which will feature a night full of, classic 70’s and 80’s yacht rock hits. The Monsters of Yacht deliver rocking recreations of songs by artists like Toto, Christopher Cross, the Bee Gees, Steely Dan, Hall and Oates, Doobie Brothers, Kenny Loggins, and more. They have the skills and attitude needed to pay tribute to the artists of the yacht rock genre with a powerful live show featuring accurate vocals and performances of the classic yacht rock songs.

  Saturday, June 27 – HOG Fest featuring Cinderella’s Tom Keifer. Best known as the singer-songwriter/ front man of the Philadelphia-based blues rock band Cinderella, Tom Keifer is enjoying continued success with solo releases “The Way Life Goes” and “RISE.” Though he possesses all the fire and brimstone of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest front men, you would be hard pressed to find the versatility and dimension that Keifer brings to a stage. Keifer is clearly one of the most unique singers and accomplished musicians in rock ‘n’ roll. For more information, visit http://www.tomkeifer.com/Love 4 Zero will open the show.

July 2, 3 & 4 – The Haynes Apperson Festival. Full details and lineup for this year’s event will be announced soon.

Saturday, July 25 – Rhumfest – Artists for this event are TBA, but are bound to feature Kokomo area favorites from solo artists to bands. The event will also include favorite past and present musicians out of the Rhum Academy. The event is set to start at 3 p.m.

 Saturday, Aug. 22 – My Sinatra with The Kokomo Symphony. Cary Hoffman turns his celebrated PBS special into a biographical, often hilarious, and poignant one-man musical play about his love and idolization for his hero Frank Sinatra. Hoffman captivates the audience with his intimate journey of what it was like growing up fatherless with three musician uncles, who played on some of Sinatra’s greatest recordings, turning Sinatra into a fantasy father. Hoffman authentically sings Sinatra, creating a musical score about his lifelong obsession. For more information, visit https://www.mysinatra.com/

 Saturday, Sept. 19 – Octoberfest featuring Free Fallin’ (Tom Petty Tribute). Free Fallin presents its show with the power and passion that went into more than 30 years of Tom Petty’s best selling songs – from “Damn the Torpedoes” through the latest (including hits from the Traveling Wilburys). Free Fallin’s show has the instrumentation to duplicate the sound of the Heartbreakers as well as the convincing looks and costumes that gives you a show that you will not soon forget! For more information, visit https://www.freefallin.us/
