Limbo and the Lugnuts open Summer Concert Series

Wilsonville Rotary club packs Town Center Park for first of four Thursday shows


by: SPOKESMAN PHOTO: JOSH KULLA - Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts' bassist Matt Kenney rocks out July 24 at Wilsonville's Town Center Park as the Wilsonville Rotary Summer Concert Series opened. The Wilsonville Rotary Summer Concert Series kicked off July 24 with Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts. The series raises money for Rotary's fight against polio.

This year marks the 10th consecutive year leading off the series for the legendary combo affectionately known as “Wilsonville Rotary’s House Band.”

The series continues July 31 with a 6:30 p.m. concert by rock violinist Aaron Meyer, who returns to the series after a four-year hiatus. Meyer is an accomplished, classically trained violinist, composer and educator. He has invented his own sound, which fits into the classical-crossover genre. He performs his unique, high-energy blend of world, pop/rock and classical sounds surrounded by a full six-piece band in which his violin is the lead vocalist.

On Thursday, Aug. 7 Big Night Out returns to the Town Center Park stage for a set of hits spanning several decades of Motown and other American classics.

Finally, Portland swing performer Tony Starlight makes his Wilsonville debut at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 14.
