What's playing this week?
For The Review, Tidings
Summer brings music to area parks, hosted by Lake Oswego Parks and Rec, West Linn Parks and Rec and Wilsonville Rotary. Here's the run down of what is playing this week:
Lake Oswego Parks and Rec offers two concert series this summer. The concerts are free and open to all; bring a picnic and the whole family. Pets are allowed on leashes only.
Moonlight & Music
Sunday, July 15 — Lisa Mann and her Really Good Band is the featured act for Sunday's Moonlight & Music concert, taking place at Millennium Plaza Park, 200 First St., Lake Oswego from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Mann has been awarded the prestigious 2016 Blues Music Award for her skills on bass guitar, an award which she also took home in 2015. Her first award win fell hot on the heels of receiving the Blues Blast's Sean Costello Rising Star Award, as well as three Muddy Waters Awards from the Cascade Blues Association: Contemporary Blues Act of the Year, Bass Player of the Year and Northwest Recording of the Year. Originally from West Virginia, Mann's vocals effortlessly straddle the line between the honey sweet warmth of the South, and the force-of-nature sound she has cultivated by mastering everything from hard rock to rhythm and blues.
Food — On A Whim Catering provides box lunches and beverages for purchase; attendees can also bring their own food and beverages. Alcohol is permitted. Parking is available at Lakeview Village shopping center, The Windward and in the neighborhood where marked.
