Bluebird Free Concerts in the Park – Tom Petty Tribute
August 12, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Each year on July and August Sunday evenings, our more southerly Bluebird Park comes alive with live music that varies from Grateful Dead tribute bands to great rock and roll, Reggae and jazz.
Although most locals are very familiar with Bluebird Park, newcomers and visitors might not know it even exists. This is such a lovely park. Unlike the gorgeous ocean setting of the Heisler Park concert series in May, Bluebird Park is more like sitting in a meadow clearing amidst towering trees. It’s quite serene and lovely. The music, though, is far from serene. This is a fun, rocking evening no matter who’s on stage.
Pack up your chairs and picnic blankets (no placement before 3:00 p.m. please) and tote in a picnic basket with all your favorites. It’s a great friendly crowd of locals and visitors alike, and a perfect way to end a weekend and begin the week ahead.
On Sunday, August 12th, it’s Room at the Top, a Tom Petty Tribute band. While Lead Singer and Guitarist Jamie Browning looks and plays amazingly like Tom Petty, he actually pronunciates better than the classic favorite. In other words, you might actually learn the words to the songs you’ve been singing all these years. Browning has played with everyone from the Righteous Brothers to Iron Butterfly, and his bandmates bear similar long bios of global stage play.
Bluebird Park is located on Cress Street between Temple Terrace and Bluebird Canyon Drive.
