Holyoke Rotary Announces Summer Concert Series

The Holyoke Rotary Club has announced the line-up of the 2015 "Positively Holyoke" Summer Concert Series. The free concerts will be held on Wednesday evenings, July 8 - July 29 from 6:00 - 8:00pm at Heritage State Park in Holyoke, MA. Performances canceled due to weather will be scheduled for the following evening (Thursday of the same week).
The 2015 Positively Holyoke Summer Concert Series has been made possible by the generous sponsorships from Major Sponsors: Holyoke Gas & Electric Department, Holyoke Parks & Recreation and Band Sponsors: Ross Insurance Agency Inc., O'Connell Care at Home and The O'Connell Companies.
Heritage State Park is a family-friendly area located between the Volleyball Hall of Fame, Holyoke Children's Museum, and Historic Holyoke Merry-Go-Round. The park has no formal seating and concert-goers are encouraged to bring folding chairs and picnic blankets.

"The Positively Holyoke Summer Concert Series began five years ago at the request of the City of Holyoke Parks & Recreation Department. The department approached the Holyoke Rotary Club with the knowledge that many local Rotary clubs provide this form of entertainment in the communities they serve. The events are fun and family-friendly," said Maureen Ross O'Connell, co-chairperson of the concert committee.

The four-week concert series will feature a 50/50 raffle each week.

Attendees are welcome to enjoy food at the Rotary Grill, brought to us this year by Sláinte, which will open at 5:30pm each week. 

Beer and wine will be available for purchase courtesy of Brennan's Place from 5:30pm - 8pm. New this year, attendees will be allowed to take their purchases from the Beer Garden on to the grounds of Heritage State Park. Coolers and beverages not purchased at the event will not be allowed.

Following is a schedule of concerts:
July 8, 2015: Out of the Blue (Rock & Roll)
July 15, 2015: Brass Attack (Classic/Modern Rock)
July 22, 2015: The Franny O Show (Cover/Original songs)
