Parks and Recreation’s Music on Main concert series concluded its fifth season on Thursday evening with old school, Chicago blues by the band Johnny-O and the Jump Out Boys. All concerts in the outdoor series were free.
Johnny-O and the Jump Out Boys is a group of musicians interested in bringing back the sounds of the 1950s and 1960s blues greats. The Chicago-style blues band is led by harmonica player Johnny Olsen, who became attracted to the blues greats after seeing live performances of BB King, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, Charlie Musselwhite, James Cotton, and others.
Concerts in the Music on Main series were held outdoors at the Main Street Plaza on the second and fourth Thursdays from June through August. Each concert featured a different style of music, ranging from blues to bluegrass and jazz to an Elvis tribute.
All concerts began at 6:30 p.m. Parks and Recreation staff said turnout was highest ever for this year’s series.
