2nd Street Stage returns June 16

With their rich blend of Americana and alt-country, “Farewell Milwaukee” will open 2nd Street Stage on Thursday, June 16. The 10-night series of Members are Ben Lubeck, vocals; Aaron Markson, guitar; Adam Lamoureux, keyboard; Dave Strahan, pedal steel; Joey Ryan, bass, and Brad Fox, drummer.

Bring a comfy chair and celebrate a musical, summer evening in downtown Park Rapids.

"Farewell Milwaukee" kicks off the 2nd Street Stage concert series at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 16.

Organized by the Park Rapids Downtown Business Association, the weekly event includes free music, a beer garden and family activities on 2nd Street, between Main and Hwy. 71.

"Farewell Milwaukee" will perform from 6 to 8 p.m.

A cross between the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and early ’70s Faces, this band from Minneapolis employs youthful two- and three-part vocal harmonies backed by lulling acoustic guitar, twangy electric guitar, weepy pedal steel and sultry piano and organ. Four albums into a 10-year career, their modern take on ’70s rock ’n roll continues to please.

Second Street Stage will be held every Thursday through Aug. 18.
