A Summer Concert Series will take place in Ybor City, with performers booked by Now Hear This, a Valrico based company with a foundation of management, promotion and booking in the entertainment industry.
Every Saturday night in July, August and September will feature live music on the large outdoor stage adjacent to the Ybor Daily Market, located at 1920 E. 7th Ave. Each week’s show will be from 8-10 p.m. and feature local acts as well as some being brought in from out of town. The genres vary and the acts range from solo to band. Tickets start at $10 for general admission and sales are now underway through EventBrite.
“We’ve been open for five months but are still working to get the word out about the Ybor Daily Market,” said Scott Bookamer, who owns and operates the facility. “We feel that getting people down here every Saturday night for music will bring to our location people who might not otherwise get an opportunity to see what this is all about. We’re excited about the Summer Concert Series and look forward to seeing a lot of new faces through this event.”
Now Hear This President Bruce Wawrzyniak said, “This is an exciting opportunity for Now Hear This. A diverse lineup has been put together so that there’s something for everyone.”
In revealing the full line-up, Wawrzyniak noted that two of the dates (July 4 and July 25) were booked by the Ybor Daily Market. The full talent Saturday night lineup includes: July 18 – Hook – Pop Rock July 25 – Red Calling – Hard Rock August 1 – PJ Brunson – Folk August 8 – Rankie Raye – Folk/Pop August 15 – Luvin Country Band – Classic Country August 22 – The Ember Jar – Soul/Indie Rock August 29 – 3-Dom Band – Classic Rock September 5 – Diamond Dixie – Country September 12 – Melissa Joiner – Blues/Americana September 19 – Jonathan Richards – Country September 26 – Kate Callahan – Folk
