Free “Live Oak Summer Concert Series”

RiverLights Hosts Free “Live Oak Summer Concert Series” Featuring Live Performances from Local Bands

WILMINGTON, N.C. - June 5, 2017–RiverLights, a master-planned coastal community in Wilmington, N.C., is kicking off summer with the inaugural Live Oak Summer Concert Series - a free, outdoor concert series that will feature live performances from local bands once a month in June, July and August.

Wilmington’s favorite party band, Jack Jack 180, will kick off the concert series on Saturday, June 17, followed by indie-rock band, Onward, Soldiers on Saturday, July 15 and an energetic finale from L Shaped Lot on Friday, August 18 to cap the series. 

The events will last from 6 to 9 p.m. and will be held at Live Oak Commons, a central open space in the RiverLights community, located under a picturesque canopy of live oak trees.

The entire community is invited and is welcome to bring blankets and chairs to kick back, relax and enjoy the shows. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from Smoke on The Water and Magnolia Social Cafe. Both restaurants will have snacks, sweets and ice cream to help guests cool off during the warm summer nights. Guests are also welcome to relax in the hammocks, peruse the parks and walk along the riverfront boardwalk.

During the June and August shows, The Sun Coast Cruisers car club will feature a “Cruise In” car show, showcasing their impressive collection of antique vehicles.

“We are very excited to host our first community concert series,” said Bill Mumford, senior vice president of Newland Communities Mid-Atlantic and RiverLights. “It’s our pleasure to bring family, friends and neighbors together while supporting Wilmington’s local music scene. We invite everyone to attend and to also look out for more fun events coming soon to RiverLights this summer.”
