FROM CONCERTS BY THE WATER AND INTIMATE ACOUSTIC SETS IN THE PARK to local, regional, and national acts, LivCo's live music scene brings something new to the stage (or street) every day of the summer months.
Dance the night away to live music at local venues and in villages playing the sounds of summer. As the sun starts to set a little later each day and the temperatures rise, it's the perfect time to indulge in some summertime fun. One of the best ways to do so is by heading out to local venues, villages, breweries, and businesses for live music.
Summer concerts are more than just an opportunity to listen to live music. They're a chance to create memories with loved ones and support the local community. Whether you're listening to familiar favorites or discovering new musicians, summer concerts provide an excellent opportunity to expand your musical horizons. And with so many venues to choose from, you're sure to find a concert series that suits your tastes.
Whether you're into rock, pop, country, or jazz, there is something for everyone to enjoy while basking in the warmth of the summer sun. And there are tons of places in LivCo to enjoy concerts as the sun sets over the Genesee River Valley. It's a chance to enjoy the warm weather and spend time with family and friends. Most concert series are free or have a minimal cover charge, making them an affordable option for entertainment.
So gather your friends and family, grab a lawn chair or a picnic blanket, and get ready to groove to the sounds of summer!
