Midvale’s Sounds of Summer Friday Concert Series is coming to an end, with just two shows remaining in the 2018 season. If you haven’t made your way to the Midvale City Park Amphitheater to check out the free music and entertainment, now is your chance. 

The last band to hit the stage on a Friday evening this season is the Jersey Street Band. The newly reorganized group was established in 1993, and has played hundreds of events in Utah. Whether you gravitate to rock, pop, jazz or easy listening, the Jersey Street players know how to party. 

The band is fronted by Larry Green—the head of the guitar department at BYU—and will keep you dancing all night to both modern and classic dance hits. The remaining members of this four-piece band are: Julia Green (keys and vocals), Robyn Green (bass and vocals) and Lawrence Green (guitar and vocals). Head down to Midvale City Park on Aug. 3 and get ready to rock. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with free family-friendly games, contests with prizes, and other activities including face painting and balloon artistry, chalk and bubble fun, and a splash pad. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. following the festivities. 

The final band of the season will play on Saturday, Aug. 11, as part of the free live entertainment at Midvale Harvest Days. This year the most successful duo in country music history, The Bellamy Brothers, will headline the show. Howard and David started their journey on the pop music charts in the 1970s, officially making a name for themselves in 1976 when their single, “Let Your Love Flow,” became an instant smash in the U.S. and Europe. By the late 1970s The Bellamy’s were emerging on the country charts with another bona fide smash paving the way for duos to come. The Bellamy Brothers will hit the stage from 8-9:30 p.m., with an opening band and country line dancing beginning at 5:15 p.m., followed by a fireworks display in the park at 10 p.m. 

The brothers’ latest project is their new album titled “40 Years” which is an ambitious project that celebrates their career with 20 of their biggest hits, in addition to 20 new songs in this two CD anniversary collection. The duo will also be signing autographs after the concert. You can find more information about the history of the Florida natives at bellamybrothers.com
