Friday, July 13, 5 p.m.—Downtown Rutland’s Friday Night Live is a free concert series featuring live music, outdoor dining, children’s activities and more. Headliners perform in the “Pit” parking lot, which is transformed into a unique, amphitheater-like concert venue. Merchants and vendors set up along the street in open air fashion with fun for the whole family.
Kicking off the series on Friday, July 13 is 8084. Energetic, charismatic and dedicated, 8084 has been exciting audiences for over a decade. Sharing the stage with such acts as Aldo Nova, Toto, April Wine, Warrant, Edgar Winter, Blue Oyster Cult, and Henry Lee Summer, the group has performed throughout all of the northeast, mid-Atlantic and southern states, as well as Quebec and the maritime provinces. Whether in an intimate club in Columbus, Georgia or before 10,000 people at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Canada, 8084 always demonstrates the ability to please a crowd.
This edition of Friday Night Live also features an acoustic set from Nikki Adams, pottery demos by the Rutland Rec, craft night at Wonderfeet Kids Museum, and more. Bring lawn chairs to sit and enjoy the concert.
Organizers remind the public that there is no smoking at downtown events, for the family-friendly atmosphere.
Upcoming concerts include Kat Wright on July 20, and John Waite on July 27. For more information, visit downtownrutland.com.
