Talented performers from near and far are booked this month for free outdoors shows on the Ross Street Patio.
On Wednesday from 4:30 to 7 p.m., the local roots/blues band St. Groove will rock the outdoor stage.
The group, led by Red Deer’s Mitch Chase, produces a dynamic and powerful sound that brings together the blues/rock and alternative genres. St. Groove promises to bring a fresh, indie feel to the patio.
The patio is sponsored by the Red Deer Downtown Business Association.
On Wednesday, July 23, Rebecca Raabis and Erin Buhr will bring an acoustic show to the patio from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
The local singer/songwriters, who are the front women for the rockin’ indie band Foxjaw, are taking a break from their electric guitars for this performance that puts a spotlight on their songs.
The last Wednesday evening of the month, July 30, will see folk rockers Greenbank Trio, from Thunder Bay, Ont., perform from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
The energetic group has a lot of experience playing at venues large and small (the trio has opened for Leann Rimes).
Up-and-coming local musicians or old pros are also invited to perform on the patio from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Thursday Night Jam Nights.
The open-mic program is also sponsored by the downtown business association.
All are welcome to come play or listen.
