Thursday Night Summer Concert Series – The Resurrection Blues Band
Review by Thomas Hoyt
I had the pleasure of listening to The Resurrection Blues Band at the Concert in the Common. This band is from Stevensville, MI, and is only a 3-person band. There is a drummer, a bass player, and the lead guitar and vocalist. The music they played was a mix of covers along with some original compositions.
While I’m not a passionate follower of blues bands and their music, I do enjoy listening to blues music. It can really get your head bopping and toes tapping. In fact, at this concert there were a few couples who would get up and dance to some of the songs played. That’s one of the really nice things about these Concert in the Common performances. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere and people can come and go as they please. I myself came with a pizza from Milano’s and enjoyed the music while eating my dinner. While I cannot remember all the song titles that were played, I would certainly encourage you all to go listen to this band. I have to remember the next time I go listen to a band at a Concert in the Common, I need to take notes to remember the song titles. I did find this on YouTube, which shows the band playing and gives you the song titles: https://youtu.be/_CqsgKiMpt0
About Buchanan Common: The Common is Buchanan’s very own outdoor amphitheatre. Sitting in the heart of historic Buchanan, it sets us apart from other local communities as something unique and special. All summer long the Common plays host to many events: from our Saturday Morning Farmers’ Market to Stop, Lunch, & Listen to our classic Thursday Night Town Concerts to our Last Saturdays on the Common Concert Series. In the future we look forward to expanding our offerings to live theater and outdoor movies. The best part of the Common, all of the events held here are FREE to the public and just another way we remind residents and show visitors how great Buchanan truly is. Hopefully you can grab a blanket, bring a picnic and enjoy some live entertainment in the warm summer air.
