2024 Summer Concert Series

From: 07:30 PM to 09:30 PM, June 13, 2024 | Bradley Fair

A BELOVED BRADLEY FAIR TRADITION IS BACK, WITH TUNES FOR EVERY TASTE

Join us for our annual 5-week concert series on Thursday evenings from June 6 through July 4. This year, enjoy new music genres from soul to bluegrass, and almost everything in between. Live music starts under the sunset at 7:30 p.m.

Before you find your spot on the Plaza or set up your picnic around the lake, be sure and order takeout from your Bradley Fair favorites or try something new from some local food trucks. Kid-friendly pre-show activities will take place beginning at 6 PM to keep the little ones entertained while dining al fresco.

THE LINEUP

June 6th – Keo & Them

Meet Keo, a Texas-born singer/songwriter now based in Wichita, who believes making music is about both the songs and the meaningful connections forged during the artistic journey. Formed in 2019, Keo & Them is more than just a band; it’s a collective of musicians and collaborators, each leaving a distinct mark on the project’s evolving sound. With influences ranging from 70’s pop/R&B to contemporary neo-soul, alt R&B, and beyond, Keo & Them embraces the eclectic, allowing Keo to immerse herself in the Wichita music scene.

June 13th – Pretend Friend

Pretend Friend is a genre-defying progressive bluegrass band out of Wichita, Kansas. Releasing new music and touring since 2017, Pretend Friend sounds like the quick-pickin’ offspring of Robert Plant and the Stanley Brothers playing high-energy performances loaded with improv jams and harmonies.

June 20th – King Cabbage Brass Band

Since arriving on the Tulsa music scene, King Cabbage has taken the region by storm with its infectious blend of classic brass band tunes, modern covers, and original music. Their sound fuses the popular New Orleans brass band style with an eclectic blend of pop, R&B, hip-hop, and funk. Typical performances include renditions of recent favorites by artists like Beyoncé, Outkast, Justin Timberlake, and Rage Against The Machine, as well as their own spin on the brass band standards of NOLA.
