A blend of rock and roll, country and blues bands will take the stage during the 22nd year of Longview Parks and Recreation’s Summer Concerts at the Lake.
The series features a different band from 6 to 8 p.m. every Thursday at Martin Dock at Lake Sacajawea. The series runs from July 11 through Aug. 15.
Portland garage rock group The Kingsmen will kick the event off July 11. The band is most known for its rowdy, one-take 1963 recording of Richard Berry’s “Louie Louie,” which claimed the No. 2 spot on the Billboard charts for six weeks.
They’ll be followed July 18 by singer-songwriter Tayla Lynn, granddaughter of country music legend Loretta Lynn. Lynn previously toured as a member of country trio Stealing Angels, which has performed for U.S. troops in Iraq/Kuwait and written billboard charting songs “He Better Be Dead” and “Paper Heart.”
The 80’s tribute band Prom Date Mixtape will play July 25, covering groups from A-ha to The Clash to Tears for Fears. Moving in Stereo, a The Cars tribute band, will follow them on Aug. 1.
Cherry Cherry, a Neil Diamond tribute band, will play on Aug. 8, and funk, soul and dance group Soul Siren will take the stage Aug. 15, playing hits from the 1960s onward.
