Special to Iredell Free News
Our Town Stage has announced show times and dates for the upcoming “Rock the Park – Liberty Park Concert Series,” a diverse collection of five free shows.
All of the shows will be at Mooresville’s newest performing arts venue, Liberty Park, located at 255 E. Iredell Avenue.
The outdoor concert series will kick off May 6 with Cat5 Band, an award-winning band bringing the best beach music, originals, country, yacht rock, and classic rock. Cat5 Band burst on the scene in June 2019. They’ve accepted the Carolina Beach Music Awards Cammy Award for “New Artist of the Year” in 2020 and won “Song of the Year” with their original hit, “The Beach and The Boulevard.”
Next up is Carolina Soul Band, scheduled to take the Amphitheater on June 3. Concertgoers can jam out to the sweet soulful sounds of legendary groups like The Drifters, The Coasters, Smokey Robinson and many more.
On August 5, Our Town Stage will transport concertgoers to Magaritaville with the Official & Original Jimmy Buffett Tribute show. Over the years, the band has repeatedly been the headlining band for the Annual Jimmy Buffett “Meeting of the Minds” Parrot Head Convention and for other landmark Parrot Head Events.
On September 2, the Carolina’s premiere 80s pop tribute band, 80z Nation, is ready to rock Downtown Mooresville. This cover band always delivers a high-energy performance that will make you wish you were back in your neon wind suit. Playing songs by A Flock of Seagulls, Journey, Duran Duran, Prince, and more, this show is totally a blast from the past.
The last performance of the series is slated for October 7. The Stranger, a Billy Joel tribute featuring Mike Santoro, is live entertainment at its best. From Billy Joel’s radio hits to classic B-sides, with great songs sprinkled in from similar artists such as Elton John and Paul McCartney, it’s everything you want in an evening out of great music.
All shows begin at 6:30 p.m. with food and beverages available starting at 6 p.m.
