The Westchester Concert Series returns
The Westchester Concert Series returns for 2017! The concerts are held on Fridays from 5:30pm-8:30pm on The Village Green, our natural park setting, located between Latitude Seafood Company, Luxury Pool & Spa, Noodles & Company and Plaza Azteca.
The first part of the Concert Series is brought to you by Buffalo Wild Wings, MIX 98.1 and Westchester Commons.
All proceeds from beer and food sales go to benefit local charities (listed below).
FRIDAY, May 19–Due to the pending very wet weather, we’ve postponed the kick off of the season to Friday, May 19th with local favorite Flashback, a group of extremely well-seasoned singers and musicians that have decades of combined experience performing on the biggest stages of the eastern United States. You may have seen them at Visions or Midway, and now they make their Westchester Concert Series debut!
Our charity for the kick-off concert event is The Chesterfield Food Bank.
FRIDAY, May 26–To get you started for Memorial Day Weekend, we’re going to party with a BRAND NEW Band to the Richmond region, Astonish! This young group of talented musicians have been together for more than a year refining their song list and their show performance, and YOU will get to be one of the first audiences to see this amazing new band! From R&B Soul, Motown and Oldies, Astonish will astonish you in every way! Get ready to dance, because they are ready for you!
FRIDAY, JUNE 9–And to get you ready for Summer, we have returning the legendary Mystic Soul Bubbas, featuring Steve Bassett and Ammon Tharp, along with their cookin’ seven-piece group, play classic soul, boogie ‘n blues. Longtime Richmond mainstay and co-author of the official Virginia State Song, “Sweet Virginia Breeze,” Steve Bassett is a voice you grew up with and continues his soulful place amongst music’s greats. And Ammon Tharp, co-founder of the beach band, Bill Deal & The Rhondels, as well as the Fat Ammons Band, still keeps the back beat thumping of the Bubbas.
Our charity for this event is Sportable.
FRIDAY, JUNE 30–We end the first half of the Series with one of the longest enduring bands in the U.S., The Voltage Brothers! Originally from Rochester, NY, the band spent many of its years based in Richmond, and became a local favorite throughout the region. Now hailing from Atlanta, GA, The Voltage Brothers perform top hits from every genre…R&B, swing, Carolina beach music, disco, funk, hip hop, jazz, Motown, pop, and even classic rock hits. You may even remember them from the movies “Shag” or “Radioland Murders.” THIS group is gonna bring it to Westchester Commons, all the way from the ATL.
This week’s charitable organization is Richmond Animal League.
This is JUST the beginning…stay tuned for more concerts announced soon.
Come on out and unwind with your co-workers, friends and everyone you know at the Westchester Concert Series!
