WEST VALLEY — This summer will liven up with live music, every Tuesday, at the Fireman’s Memorial Hall in West Valley.
In past years, the concerts were held, every second and fourth Tuesday, but this year, due to increased interest, the events will take place every Tuesday, between June 25 and Aug. 13, according to event planners.
“We had more groups and bands that approached us,” said Mychelle McNeil-Wedvik, the West Valley Volunteer Hose Company’s treasurer and fundraising committee chair. “We’ve got some more groups, so let’s see if we can go all eight weeks.”
The fire hall will provide hot dogs and condiments, each week, and several different organizations and clubs will grill the hot dogs, for the summer-long event series.
Money donated, during the concerts, will be given to the organization that did that evening’s grilling. Some of the groups that will be participating, this summer, include Saint Paul’s Methodist Church, the West Valley Food Bank and the local Cub Scouts.
Saint Paul’s Methodist Church will also set up a sundae bar, each week.
McNeil-Wedvik said that the genre of music will vary, each week, which she said will help draw a different crowd to each show.
“You think, ‘Wow, we’ve got a whole mix of people here,’” she said. Southern rock, classic rock and country western are a few of the styles that will be played, at the concerts.
The events are open to the public. The Tuesday evening concerts will be held from 7 – 9 p.m. each Tuesday, until Aug. 13.
In the event of rain, the concert will move to the Fireman’s Memorial Hall. Organizers suggested that attendees bring along their own lawn chairs and beverages.
