Midtown Music concerts continue July 9

Midtown Music Concert Series begins in April at Daisy Stocking Park

Enjoy a night of music at Daisy Stocking Park Saturday, July 9, as the city-sponsored Midtown Music Concert Series continues with a performance by The Groov at 7:30 p.m.

The Groov is a genuine smooth jazz, soul and R&B band that is a fresh departure from the traditional or straight-ahead jazz bands that lack "feel" and attitude. The Groov's music will have you bopping, dancing, grooving and feeling great. The Groov is made up of highly-skilled professional musicians, all of whom have been playing for more than 20 years each. Past performances include opening for Earth Wind and Fire, playing at major jazz festivals and opening for other touring smooth jazz artists.

The Midtown Music Concert Series showcases the best local bands from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on select Saturday nights through September. Upcoming concerts include:

  • Saturday, Aug. 13: 7th Street Band *Concert will be at Cypress Park (next to Cypress Aquatic Center at 981 George W. Engram Blvd.)
    Established in 2008, the 7th Street Band has spent more than a decade touring throughout Florida and south Georgia. They have three talented female singers, who combined have a vocal range that covers many artists including Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Shania Twain, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Alannah Myles. They are known for performing timeless hits from a wide range of genres and artists. 
  • Saturday, Sept. 17: Franchise Players *Concert will be at Cypress Park (next to Cypress Aquatic Center at 981 George W. Engram Blvd.) 
    Franchise Players, featuring Andrew Luv, blends elements of soul, pop, smooth jazz, hip hop and more for a unique and refreshing musical experience.
