FDLTCC

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is set to host the 2017 Hot Summer Nights Concert Series, a series of free concerts scheduled for the college's outdoor-indoor amphitheater.

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC) announced the line-up of entertainment for the 2017 Hot Summer Nights Concert Series, a series of free concerts scheduled for the college's outdoor-indoor amphitheater. The popular performances are open to the public and will be held from 7-9 p.m. every Thursday evening for four weeks beginning July 6 and concluding July 27. All concerts will be held rain or shine under the dome of the college's spectacular amphitheater.

"This is our 19th summer that we will have presented free concerts at the college" said Tom Urbanski, director of public information at FDLTCC. "We continue presenting the concerts because they are hugely popular among area residents and visitors, many who keep coming back every summer to hear great music in a wonderful setting."

The series opening act on July 6 is a crowd favorite and veteran musical showman, Todd Eckart from Duluth. July 13 presents Rock-a-Billy Revue featuring leader Don Buck. The concert on July 20 brings an exciting new act to the series, the Northeast Timberland Band. The final concert on July 27 concludes the summer series with Jillian Rae, an engaging performer and a fabulous triple treat of vocals, fiddle and personality on stage.

"We don't get tired of hearing our audience members telling us that they look forward to the concerts each summer," said Urbanski. "We try to have something fun and different each week, and we carefully select high-quality performers who you don't often hear or see in our area. People have said our concerts are like attending a mini-festival every Thursday evening in Cloquet."

In addition to the Thursday evening concerts, the college will host one Monday evening concert by the Cloquet Community Band on Monday, July 10, starting at 7 p.m.

Each entertaining evening of music is designed for family fun and for people of all ages. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets or seat cushions to sit on. Beginning at approximately 6:15 p.m. each Thursday concert evening, the staff and students from the college's Veterans Resource Center will be grilling and selling tasty food items from B&B Market, including hamburgers, hot dogs and bratwurst as a fundraiser for the student organization on campus.

The Hot Summer Nights Concert Series is sponsored by Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. For more information, call (218) 879-0800.
