Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation kicked off their summer series of concerts at Morley Park last Thursday, June 18, with local band Roosevelt Diggs.

The band’s unique mix of country, folk, bluegrass and blues was a feast for the ears, and it was a beautiful summer evening to sit and relax with friends and family.

There were concessions on site, and free raffle tickets gave concert-goers a chance to win prizes from area businesses.

Check out Roosevelt Diggs on YouTube, or their website rooseveltdigs.com to see where they perform next. Their album “Songs from the Shed” is available on their website or at Amazon.com.

The next concert in the park is July 16 with Don Middlebrook. The Sea Cruisers will perform on August 20. Be sure to bring a lawn chair. Concerts start at 7 p.m.

The Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation Department is bringing music back for the 8th summer in Morley Park. Some great bands are scheduled for the 3rd Thursday of June, July and August. The first band, Roosevelt Diggs, will appear next Thursday, June 19. The concert begins at 7 p.m. in the park, right off Cedar Street. You can listen to some of their music at www.rooseveltdiggs.com.

The event is free to the public and will include a free raffle of door prizes during the band’s intermission. The door prizes are donated by local businesses. The concerts’ main sponsor, Independent Bank, is celebrating its 150th year, and will be giving away a $100 gift card at each concert to someone 18 or older.

Bring lawn chairs or a blanket, pack up the kids, and head out for a relaxing evening with friends and neighbors and hear some great music!

In the event of inclement weather, a decision will be made by 4 p.m. on whether to cancel the concert. They will broadcast their decision through text alerts and on their facebook page. You can sign up for text alerts by going to their website at www.csaparksandrec.com and clicking on text alerts in the right hand column, or visit their facebook page by searching for Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation.
