     CHARLOTTE — Summer Concerts on the Square continues this week Thursday, July 19, with a 6:30 p.m. performance by rockabilly favorites Billy Mack and the Juke Joint Johnnies. This week’s concert is generously sponsored by Pray Funeral Home.
     For more than 13 years, Billy Mack and Juke Joint Johnnies have been pleasing audiences throughout the Midwest, California and Florida with their unique brand of Swing-a-Billy, Rockabilly and Lounge music. This blend of styles makes them stand out performers with a large following. They have also released five critcally-acclaimed albums on CD. Led by Billy Mack’s dynamic, soaring vocals, the band delivers high-quality musicianship with exceptional stage presence.
     “Year after year, this is one of our most requested bands,” concert organizer Bryan Myrkle said. “They put on a real show, not just a concert. They are fun and entertaining way beyond just the music.”
     The Summer Concerts on the Square free music series will continue every Thursday evening, weather permitting, through August 16. All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. and last approximately two hours. Audience members are invited to bring their picnic blankets, lawn chairs and non-alcoholic refreshments.

Woah, Nelly! Summer concerts start this week!

Woah, Nelly! performs in Charlotte earlier this year.

    Former Charlotte Idol winner and popular local band, “Woah, Nelly!” will kick-off this  year’s Summer Concerts on the Square free music series on Thursday night with a two-hour performance starting at 6:30 p.m. This concert is made possible through a generous donation by Eric Rogers, LLC.

     “Woah, Nelly!” plays a heartwarming and toe-tapping blend of Americana, folk, country, gospel, blues, bluegrass and original music. The band is well-known for its tight harmonies and satisfying guitar leads. The band features lead singer Janette Burzan, guitarist and singer LeRoy Harvey, and Michigan Country Music Hall-of-Famer Ron McKeever on guitar, banjo, mandolin and bouzouki.

     This is one of two bands playing this year’s series that feature members of the Michigan Country Music Hall of Fame, the other being the Brenda Loomis Band, with Scott Bates.

     Burzan is a lifelong resident of Charlotte, and has shared her love of singing with bands and audiences around Mid-Michigan for many years. McKeever is also a Charlotte resident, has been playing guitar since he was four-years old, and is recognized by his peers as one of Michigan’s finest flat pickers. He is currently working on a CD that will be released soon. Harvey is from Lansing, Michigan and enjoys singing, playing guitar, doing sound and learning new songs at music jams and open mic events.

     The Summer Concerts on the Square free music series will run for six consecutive weeks, concluding on August 16. The following week’s act will be Billy Mack and the Juke Joint Johnnies. All shows begin at 6:30 p.m. and run approximately two hours. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs, picnic baskets and non-alcoholic refreshments. Concerts will be moved to the First Congregational Church (right across the street) in case of rain. Be sure to check out the Charlotte Artisan and Farmer’s market on the Courthouse Square on Thursdays, too.

     For more information, contact Bryan Myrkle at (517) 543-8853.
