Twilight Tunes concert series starts July 10

As published in the Record Journal June 30, 2013

WALLINGFORD — The Twilight Tunes concert series on Wednesdays starts next month at the parade grounds.

Michelle Bjorkman, the town’s superintendent of recreation, says the program has a real family atmosphere and people usually bring picnic dinners or end up eating nearby restaurants afterward. Attendance is free. The Parks and Recreation Department co-sponsors the event with Stop & Shop.

Avenue Groove will give the first of five performances on July 10 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Singer Laura Noonan, music director at Suffield Middle School, leads the six-piece R&B/funk cover band described on its website as having “attitude.” The group has an iPhone app complete with free songs, photos, videos and a schedule of their upcoming shows. Just search for Avenue Groove in the App Store.

The Beatles Forever tribute band follows on July 17; Memphis Soul will perform on July 24; 2003 Connecticut Star Search winner Latanya Farrell takes the stage on Aug. 7 and The Cover Story Band goes on Aug. 14.

In the event of rain, the concerts are usually canceled by 4 p.m. on the day of the show, Bjorkman said.
