The city of Shelbyville is proud to present its annual free admission summer concert series for 2019 known as Music in the Park.

Summer concerts for the 2019 Music in the Park series include:

Sat, June 15 – Blues & Jazz- a night of blues and jazz with light up the summer night when two Indiana legends hit the stage. Gordon Bonham Blues Band and the jazz greats the Rob Dixon Trio are two of the most popular acts on the scene that will bring their blistering live performances to kick off the summer concert series in grand fashion.


Sat, July 20 - Kist (A tribute to KISS)- a night of classic rock. Starting in July of 2000 the founding members of Kist set out to launch a band worthy of the moniker “a tribute to Kiss.” Basing it’s stage show on the unrivaled Kiss shows of the 1970’s, Kist derives it’s set-list mostly from the make-up era catalogue, but does add in a few "out of makeup catalogue surprises.” hours of study and rehearsal has helped hone the band’s razor sharp edge. A Kist tribute brings all the fire and magic one would’ve expected at a real Kiss show.


Fri, Aug 16 - Dane Clark Band - a night of Americana and country music. Country singer Abigail Rose will open the show. Hoosier native Dane Clark has been the heartbeat of John Mellencamp's band for 23 years. As a drummer he has recorded with Mellencamp, John Prine, Steve Earle, Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople) and the nationally syndicated morning radio program the Bob & Tom Show. As producer, arranger, and co-writer he has worked with legendary 60's acts Moby Grape and Donovan, as well as many up and coming artists including Nashville's Jason Sturgeon, Indiana's Rusty Bladen, Toronto's Don Stevenson (featuring Burton Cummings) and Oklahoma prodigy Alyssa Elaine. He is a recording artist of 5 critically acclaimed album projects and a 6th project to be released this spring, as well as a recipient of a coveted Telly award for the music video of his composition "Dream Stealin' Town".


Here's what his peers and the critics have to say about his solo work:


"A writer of brilliance and honesty" Carrie Newcomer (Rounder Records)

"Good songs like these don't grow on trees, they grow on people" Ian Hunter (recording artist)


"One of the best singer songwriters I've heard in a long time" Elliott Murphy (recording artist)


" a subtle yet wholly familiar piece of Indiana rock and roll" Rob Nichols (Nuvo magazine)

Sat, Sep 14 - An Innocent Band ( A Billy Joel Tribute) - a night of rock and pop classic hits.
