13.128. Art Prize Concert Series

September 15, 2013

There will be much written, aired, and talk about Art Prize in the next few days throughout West Michigan. The one event that we just love were the daily lunch time concerts at Rosa Park Circle. The little one and I head down for a picnic, concert, and a bit of dancing. The music styles from the bands vary day to day but are all entertaining performers so even if you don’t like a particular style its fun for lunch and then wonder around the Art Prize afterwards. The lunch time concerts will run from 11:30-1:30pm at Rosa Park. As soon as I find out a performance schedule for the lunch time show I will share it.

This year the lunch time concerts have changed up a bit,  Wood TV 8 News broadcasts use to do feature the lunch concerts but will be featuring a dinner concert broadcasts instead. So you will also have a good chance of getting on TV or yelling Bob-A-Booey to the news crews (Just Kidding). The concerts will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. during the live broadcasts of 24 Hour News 8 at 5 and 6

9/23 – Thirsty Perch Blues Band*
