AvonLIVE! Concerts in the Park
begin on Wednesday, July 11th
Free community concerts are presented by the Town of Avon
Avon, CO – Join us at the Avon Performance Pavilion, at Harry A. Nottingham Park, on July 11 for family fun and music at the AvonLIVE! free community concert. The Subdudes, a well-loved group blending blues, funk, jazz, R&B and rock with a New Orleans flavor, headlines the July 11th show. Another New Orleans band, Flow Tribe, opens the evening’s live music, which begins at 5:30 p.m.
Concert & Event Specials: The concert is free to the public, and in partnership with the Avon Lake Street Market, features street food trucks and tents, beer, wine and spirits, booths with local produce, crafts and gifts, and the Lettuce Patch kids zone. Drinks will be half-price between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. Mouth-watering options include scrumptious street tacos and quesadillas, tuna poke and Maui chicken, lamb and veggie gyros, sausages, ice cream, popcorn and snow cones. A collection of craft brews, wine, refreshing spirits and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available for purchase.
The Bands: Formed in New Orleans, led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist John Magnie, The Subdudes are a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude and folky social consciousness. To open the evening’s music, few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like the nationwide hit, Flow Tribe. The six-member band’s onstage chemistry reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement that hits the audience within the first few notes.
