The musical talent steps up, tunes up, and lets go as the Summer Night’s free concert series in Moore blasts out its Grand Finale.
Held at Buck Thomas Park’s South Pavilion, 1901 NE 12th Street in Moore, the music will kick off at 5:00 p.m. for performances on both nights of the Art in the Park Festival, July 3 and 4.
More that just fireworks, the Fourth of July Celebration in Moore is a heartland SPECTACULAR called Art in the Park in Moore Oklahoma. The best celebration in the state, this is more than your run-of-the-mill community get-together. Featuring a massive fireworks show, fair style carnival rides, local artists and vendors, great food, games, and even a custom car show. Record crowds are expected.
Performances by some amazing musical talents culminate the concert series and highlight this Moore community event:
On Thursday, July 3, Jacob Lynn and the Oklahoma Rodeo Opry take the stage. Award-winning Jacob Lynn has been performing since the age of four. Singing and drumming, he has played for the Governor and been voted Male Vocalist of the Year (twice), and All Round Entertainer of the Year by the Opry. Performing a crowd pleasing combination of rock, country, patriotic, and inspirational music, Jacob will bring down the house. The Oklahoma Rodeo Opry is a live venue for traditional and up-and-coming Oklahoma talent. With their own brand of great sounds and great heritage, it is music for everybody to get their groove on!
Next up on Thursday July 3, at 7:00 p.m. is Bad Monkey, THE local Moore band cooking up a special brand of rock-n-roll. Always a crowd favorite, with a growing fan base that won’t stop, Bad Monkey plays classic rock, their way. Full of energy and bringing it on…be prepared to move when they take the stage.
Friday, July 4 holiday and party! at 5:00 p.m. with Stage County, a rock/country band that lays it down like no other band can. Playing with the likes of the Dixie Chicks, Trick Pony, Ray Wiley Hubbard, Joan Jet, and Tesla Stage County is seasoned, power packed and loaded with talent. Good songs, good lyrics, Great Show. Featuring two lead guitars and Steve Brack belting unforgettable vocals, a motto that states, “if you want to sip tea, we ain’t the band for you”…well, you get the picture: a musical concert that will have you fired up for weeks.
Up at 7:00 p.m. is Blender, a 4 piece dance group fronted by Allen Byrd. Playing throughout Oklahoma, most recently for the OKC Hornets, they are hot, hot, hot. They get the crowd behind them with Old School Funk, 70’s Disco, 80’s Pop, and Hair Band stuff. They even do the 90’s and current hits. Using popular cover tunes, Blender sets the mood with high energy dance music. From the first song of the night, they don’t stop until closing time and neither will you.
Buck Thomas Park will be over-flowing with something for everyone. Plan to make Art in the Park a family tradition and pack up a picnic, a cooler, bring lawn chairs, and stay all day. Enjoy the great music and fireworks for an unforgettable July 4th.
