6:00 pm

Pack the lawn chairs, grab a blanket and join the Redmond Chamber of Commerce & CVB for free live music as it hosts its 20th year of Music on the Green, presented by Bank of the Cascades and Eberhard’s Dairy.

One of Central Oregon’s longest-running free community concert series, Music on the Green will kick off its 2015 season at Sam Johnson Park on Wednesday, June 24 with music by Out of the Blue, a local 5 piece R & B dance cover band, entertaining us with cool sounds of Motown, rock and soulful blues.  It’s a style of music groove that makes you want to get up and shake it on any dance floor or grassy area.  Performances are scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. each evening.

Music on the Green will then continue every other Wednesday throughout the summer with five additional performances. The series will feature a diverse mix of music from country, rock, bluegrass and Motown, to fusion sounds that mix elements of pop, funk, jazz and blues.

Tubaluba

Tubaluba captures the spirit of New Orleans, and conveys it through their brass street band rhythm and style they call, Jambalaya Brass Rock. Tubaluba combines the staple musical provisions of jazz and soul with the trinity of funk, R&B & rock ‘n’ roll into a unique concoction designed to make you feel like you’ve been transported into the middle of a raucous 2nd line parade surrounded by vocals, piano, drums and a mess of horns.
