Bert Street Music Series features Victor Lawson and Boogie Chillen
Published 3:51 pm Monday, August 29, 2022
Victor Lawson and Boogie Chillen will perform a free concert at Memorial Park Community Center’s outdoor amphitheater on Thursday, Sept. 1.
The band was formed in 2010 by Lawson, who serves as the band’s singer, guitarist and band leader. His incendiary guitar playing and powerful performances have riveted audiences throughout the region. Forging an identity as a good-time party band that plays the real-deal blues, down in the mud rock ‘n’ roll and funk music, their joyful music has made the Victor Lawson and Boogie Chillen one of the area’s premier attractions.
Each of the Bert Street Music Series concerts will be held 7-9 p.m. on Thursdays at MPCC, 510 Bert St. The stage will face the tiered amphitheater below the famous Doughboy statue and veterans memorial plaza. Seating is open on the surrounding grassy areas, so blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged. Concessions will be on site. Parking is available at MPCC as well as the Municipal and Safety Building, 601 E. Main St.
