Concerts are rain or shine events. If inclement weather creates a potentially unsafe outdoor environment, concerts will be moved indoors to the Heritage Senior Center, 200 S. Jefferson St.

While food vendors may be on-site in the parking lot, outside food is also allowed. Note that no pets, alcohol or glass containers are permitted inside the building.
If the Inclement Weather Plan is put into effect for a concert, the listing above will be updated to indicate the change in venue.

The Hot Potato
Pineapple Grill Texas
Formed in 2009 and in love with styles of the past, Aurora Bleu delivers a blend of Americana, an international flare of vintage and retro inspired covers ranging from big band, swing, jump blues, rockabilly and jazz.
Tyler Kinchen & The Right Pieces
From southeast Louisiana, the band brings an energetic style of R&B/Funk that is eclectic and electric, soulful and natural. Their live performance is incomparable with as much high-energy music and physicality as there is intimate soul. Time after time, their show proves to be every bit of New Orleans’ charisma and Southern charm with catchy dance moves, innovative songs and high-flying solos all led by a voice like no other.
Latin Fire Band
Latin Fire was founded by David Flores – a major player in Texas’ Afro-Latin music scene. His nine-piece party band delivers the hot Salsa and Latin sound party goers crave. Salsa, Merengue, Bossa Nova, Lambada, Bolero, Mambo and more all fuse together for a special sound that earned the band the title of Best Salsa Band by the Dallas Music Awards organization. Inside or out, the band is on fire with energy and enthusiasm!
