Summer Concert Series in Hamilton Montana Includes Familiar Names
The summer of 2019 saw cover band "Beatles For Sale" as one of the Sapphire Lutheran Homes Summer Concert Series in Hamilton. The outdoor concert on the Large Lawn at Sapphire was suddenly filled with many audience members dancing to the classic songs.
Realizing the success of that concert and the general desire for classic songs, Sapphire Lutheran Homes is bringing them back this summer, along with another two cover bands and a 60s surf group.
Free Summer Concert Series Schedule
The Friday free concerts are the last two weeks of June and the first two weeks of July. They start at 7 p.m. on the lawn of Sapphire Lutheran Homes on North 10th Street in Hamilton.
- June 17 - Ronnie Riptide and the Riptones will take you to the beach with surfing music and more. The band includes former members of one of Montana's favorite groups "The Bop-A-Dips."
- June 24 - "Garth Live" is a cover band that will serve up the best tunes from country icon Garth Brooks. The band members have a huge list of songs from which to choose.
- July 1 - "Billy and Elton" is a cover band that sings the songs of Billy Joel and Sir Elton John. The Piano Man songs and the decades of hits from Elton will be included.
- July 8 - "Beatles For Sale" brings back the cover band that led to the cover band lineup for this summer's series.
Again, the outdoor concerts are free. Bring your own lawn chair or blanket and be ready to relive some great musical memories. And if you feel the urge to dance, be courteous to those around you. They probably would like to see the performers.
By the way, the outdoor events will continue at Sapphire later this summer, according to Community Life Director Dominic Farrenkopf, There will be a two-day stay from MSU's Shakespeare in the Parks. But we'll have more on that later.
