The Promenade’s ever popular Free Main Street Summer Concert Series presents Howard & the White Boys on Thursday, August 2nd. The members of Howard & the White Boys first met at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb in 1988 and began jamming together just for fun. But their fast-growing popularity soon convinced them they could make a career of it. After only a few months, they got their first big break by opening for B.B. King. The band soon made the move to Chicago and began performing with the biggest names in blues: Koko Taylor, Albert King, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Luther Allison, Bo Diddley, and Chuck Berry. The remaining 2012 line up is as follows:
August 9, 2012 -- TNT (Big Band rock)
August 16, 2012 -- Hey Jimmy! (Dance & Modern Rock)
Also on Thursdays, The Promenade’s Farmers Market will run through September 13th, sharing dates in June through August with the free Summer Concert Series, making Thursdays the perfect day to visit The Promenade to gather not only fresh produce & gourmet foods, but also a night out for live entertainment under the stars. The Promenade offers an extra advantage to Farmers' Market shoppers and will have free refrigeration available for those who want to keep their fresh purchases chilled while enjoying the concerts.
