‘Sounds of Summer’ concerts return to Home Place Park tonight

MADISON – Madison Arts Alliance urges residents to mark their calendars for the 2024 summer concert lineup for “Sounds of Summer.”

The concert venue is Home Place Park, 100 Shorter St., two streets south of Main Street in downtown Madison. The concerts are free and start at 7 p.m.

Madison Arts Alliance sponsors this concert series and presents the event in partnership with Madison Visionary Partners.

* May 30, The Zooks – Series opener with the return of a crowd favorite. The band describes itself as people “all about having fun.” The Zooks often welcome surprise guests.

The Zooks first organized in 2000 on Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands when band members met each other because of their jobs with a contractor for the U.S. Army, band spokesperson Randy Razook said.

The Zooks perform classic rock anthems, Motown tunes and rhythm-and-blues standards. Their dance music hails from the well-known classics in pop and rock from the 1960s through 1980s. Band members pride themselves in putting smiles on the audience’s faces.

* June 13, Groove – This group will play tunes for groovin’ to their versions of funk, rhythm and blues, soul, pop and dance party music.

* June 27, Luna Koi – Will entertain at Home Place Park for two hours of family-friendly, free music. A few of Luna Koi’s cover songs are “Everything” (Lifehouse cover); “Dreams” and “Sound Check” (Fleetwood Mac); and “Volcano.”

* July 11, Calypso Vision – Entertaining audiences for the past 10 years. The band gives a relaxed beachfront spirit, with a heavy dose of Buffett-style classics.

* July 25, Second Hand Smoke – This group may be a duo but their sound can compete with a larger set of musicians. Their music will keep the audience moving to the beat.

Food trucks will offer tempting food and snack options at the concerts. In addition, downtown eateries are nearby for a ‘sit-down meal.’

Madison Arts Alliance seeks to foster and promote the arts in Madison County. Through membership, events, sponsors and partners, the organization strives to provide quality cultural experiences and growth in North Alabama.

Rosalie Holcombe is President of Madison Arts Alliance. Madison Visionary Partners is the alliance’s fiscal sponsor.
