2021 Summer Salute Musical Lineup

Friday Night?
It must be Jimmy Church Band!

The Summer Salute nighttime fun starts in high gear on Friday night with the return of the legendary Jimmy Church Band. Hoptown is always a special show for the veteran entertainer as he makes his annual pilgrimage from Nashville to party with folks he’s been entertaining for 50 years. Join us with Jimmy, the band, Sugar & Spice, and all your friends and neighbors. The masterful showman will take the party on a trip from Motown to Bruno Mars with lots of stops in between. Friday night has officially become “Jimmy Church Night” at Summer Salute.

New Friday Night Second Stage for Gen X & Gen Z!

This year we’ve added a second stage for even more Friday night excitement. The Mayor’s Youth Council (local teens) has been charged with helping program a second stage that will provide popular music and programs for the “young folks” (20-below). Stay tuned for the announcement this spring about artists that will be featured at the new Friday Night Stage at Summer Salute.

Summer Salute has become known for having outstanding artists for Saturday night’s FREE concert.
