Lunch at Levis Square concerts returnWritten by Matt Liasse | | email@example.com
A summer concert tradition for more than a decade is set to return.
“Lunch at Levis Square,” presented by the Downtown Toledo Improvement District, invites the public to “eat to the beat.” The series will sponsor local musicians every Thursday this summer from noon to 1:30 p.m., starting May 30.
“I know we have a lot of people walking through at that time so we just try to have something different for people every Thursday,” said the improvement district’s Administrative Assistant, Beth Frisinger. She has been booking bands for the series for 10 years. She said it’s a great way for people to take a midday break from their work.
In 2003, local “American Idol” runner-up Crystal Bowersox played at “Lunch at Levis Square” twice.
“So you never know, you could get famous from these,” Frisinger said.
Food vendors attend as well, Frisinger said.
New to the set list this year are bands The Bradberries and Arctic Clam. Frisinger said she checks the local newspapers when booking acts. Bands are booked so far in advanced, there are already some lined up for next year.
The series is open and free to the public. The calendar of bands scheduled to appear follows:
May 30: Bliss
June 6: Extra Stout
June 13: Rodney Parker & Liberty Beach
June 20: Glass City Steel
June 27: Grapesmugglers Lite
July 11: The Bradberries
