If you are looking for a great way to spend the evening outside, look no further! On Wednesday June 3, at 6pm at the Headwaters Park in Fort Wayne, Living Fort Wayne kicks off their annual Summer Concert Series with live performances by local musicians Secret Mezzanine and Unlikely Alibi.
Opening act Secret Mezzanine features Canterbury High School Sophomores Rob Greene and Cai Caudill. This duo brings the songs of the sixties and seventies with their acoustic covers of the classics such as Buddy Holly, Bob Marley and Paul Simon to name a few. They also combine the sounds of their guitar and ukulele to cover more recent bands like The Black Keys and The Strokes for a relaxed sound that is hard not to dance to.
The main act for Living Fort Wayne's first Concert Series of 2015 is Unlikely Alibi. No it isn't a guide on how to get away with murder, rather it is a local Reggae Rock band formed in Fort Wayne in 2005. Since their inception into the music scene, Unlikely Alibi has opened for acts such as The Foo Fighters, Train and Ben Folds. Their sound is reminiscent of the Nineties rock sounds with crisp vocals and tight strings, but you'll just have to see for yourself when they take the stage.
Aside from the great tunes, this free event also features local food trucks and pontoon rides down the Maumee River. JK O'Donnell's will also provide a beer tent for concert-goers ages 21 and up.
Don't let the inclusion of adult beverages fool you however; this is a family friendly event where dancing and merrymaking is strongly encouraged. I attended a few of the shows last summer and they did not disappoint. The pontoon rides are likely to be a hit with the younger crowd and there is plenty of lawn space in front of the stage for copious amounts of dancing.
