Due to high demand following the inaugural four-concert Bert Street Music Series in July, Johnson City Parks and Recreation has added two October shows at the Memorial Park Community Center outdoor amphitheater.
The venue, located at 510 Bert St., will host the engaging Southern rock, outlaw country blues group JP Southern Band on Thursday, Oct. 3 and the funky, high-energy dance party band Jae Marie Project Thursday, Oct. 10. Both free concerts are from 7-9 p.m.
Performers will face the tiered amphitheater below the famous Doughboy statue and veterans memorial plaza, where visitors can mingle while enjoying the music. Seating also is available on the grassy areas that surround the amphitheater, so bring your blanket and lawn chairs. Concessions will be on sale. This is a family friendly environment.
Parking is available at the center or the Johnson City Municipal and Safety Building across East Main Street. A Senior Services shuttle will provide transport between the MPCC parking lot and amphitheater. Handicapped parking is available near the amphitheater and at the front of the community center.
The Bert Street Music Series is presented by the Johnson City Press, 101.5 WQUT Tri-Cities’ Classic Rock, Tennessee Department of Transportation, and Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
