Music for a wide variety of tastes will highlight the six performances during Saukville’s Live at the Triangle concert series, which starts Wednesday, June 8.
The series runs every other Wednesday throughout the summer.
All concerts start at 7 p.m. at the bandstand in Veterans Park in the village’s downtown. This year’s shows have been expanded by 30 minutes, running until 9:30 p.m.
In the event of rain, the concerts will be moved to the Grady Park pavilion.
The series kicks off with the classic rock offerings of the Port Washington-based Otto Day and the Nites. Band members include Gary Klever, Jimmy Bathke, Eric Madunic, Gary Haseley, Wes Decker and Richie Merritt.
On June 22, Vinyl Groove takes the stage, playing hits of the 1960s and ‘70s. The band’s latest CD is titled “If It Takes All Night.”
The music turns slightly more current on July 6, when Dirty Boogie performs pop favorites from the 1970s to today. The Milwaukee band plays an eclectic blend of music ranging from Cheap Trick to the Black-eyed Peas.
The six-member band Southern Impact is slated to appear on July 20, performing Southern rock classics. Their song list includes offerings made popular by Linda Ronstadt, Carrie Underwood, Lynyrd Skynrd and Jason Aldean.
Up-tempo, harmonica-powered blues songs will fill the evening air on Aug. 3, when the Danny Miller Band performs. Miller has been playing in southeastern Wisconsin for 40 years, starting his career with Rocket 88.
Wrapping up the series will be a band from Liverpool, England, Familiar Looking Strangers.
According to the band’s Web site, they are “a rootsy rock n’ roll band of raw power, feel and moving melody. The Strangers write songs of love, hate and heartbreak in a poetic style with the desire to express their musical stories.”
The series is sponsored by Ozaukee Press, the Village of Saukville, Columbia St. Mary’s Ozaukee Hospital and Harris Bank.
Concertgoers are invited to bring blankets and lawnchairs for comfortable seating. Food and beverages will be sold by local businesses and service groups.
A car and bike show will be included at each concert, featuring custom and stock cars and motorcycles. Anyone interested in participating in the car shows should contact Phil Vincevieus of Pleasant Valley Auto Body at 675-9098.
Green Bay Avenue on the south side of the park will be closed during the performances to better accommodate the car shows.
Highway 33 and Mill Street west of the park will be open to traffic during the performances.
