The free concerts kick off at 7 p.m. June 12 and are held Thursday nights through Aug. 21 with the exception of July 3, when there will not be a concert. They will be held in downtown Elk River at River’s Edge Commons Park.

Elk River Parks and Recreation Director Michael Hecker said some of the new bands were recommended by residents.

“The public spoke and we heard,” he said.

One of the new bands is Six Appeal, whose six members perform as an a cappella vocal band.

Socaholix plays music with a Reggae/Caribbean flair, a first for the concert series.

Fabulous Armadillos is a classic rock band requested by many people. Hecker said that band may draw one of the largest crowds of the 2014 concert series.

Brooke Lynn is a country singer and high school student from Big Lake.

Pop Rocks is the other new band, featuring a dance party rock show.

At an Elk River City Council meeting last month, Elk River Mayor John Dietz presented a plaque to Bill LaVigne of The Bank of Elk River, recognizing the bank for its contributions to community events like the Riverfront Concert Series.
