Newspapers covering Hoffman Estates:
Mr. Myers will play tonight at Village Green
We anticipate rain passing through before the concert. Bring your lawn chair or waterproof seating - the show is still on tonight!
Mr. Myers will perform on Thursday, July 7, at 7 p.m. as part of the “Summer Sounds on the Green” concert series, sponsored by the Hoffman Estates Arts Commission and the Hoffman Estates Park District.
Mr. Myers blends the sound of calypso, reggae, ska and a touch of rock and roll, creating their own style of Caribbean Rock. The carefree sounds of Jimmy Buffet, Harry Belafonte and Bob Marley will roll in on steel drums and upbeat vocals.
This concert is the third of a series of eight summer shows. All performances take place on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. The Village Green is located at 5510 Prairie Stone Parkway across the street from the Sears Centre Arena off Route 72 in the Poplar Creek at 59/90 “Entertainment District.”
Admission is free. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair to the amphitheater. If you are bringing a picnic, do not bring glass bottles, glasses or glass containers for the safety of barefoot patrons.
Levy Restaurants will be selling a variety of traditional snack food as well as unique items, changed each week to compliment the concert’s musical theme. Beer, wine and mixed drinks will also be sold. A limited supply of 20th anniversary commemorative cups will be available for purchase; discounts on beverages filling the cups may be offered during the 2016 season.
