It’s warm out, the azaleas are in bloom, but now we really know it’s spring – the Cloverdale-Idlewild Association has announced the lineup for its 2013 Spring Concert series. Sundays in April and May, folks gather together with food, children, pets and cold beverages to mingle while great tunes play in the gazebo. Don’t miss out! Here’s the lineup:

  • April 7: Tres Hombres, playing “70s rock and more.”
  • April 14: John Bull and Sheffield Walker, playing the blues.
  • April 21: Stephen McCullough on the keyboard
  • April 28: Zig and Ben, playing “old time rock and roll.”
  • May 5: Caribbean Chrome, a steel drum band
  • May 12: Matt Morgan, for Mother’s Day
  • May 19: Blackbird Pickers, playing “some rock, some folk, with a hint of bluegrass.”
  • May 26: Ed Pickett, playing guitar and mandolin

There will be inflatables this year provided by Looney’s Skating Rink and restroom facilities provided by The Pine Bar. The whole series is sponsored by Cloverdale-Idlewild and funded by a grant from BONDS. The concerts are at the Cloverdale “bottom” park at Cloverdale Road and Ponce de Leon.

    Get ready for a great evening of wonderful music at River Jam this Saturday, from 5 to 11pm, at the Montgomery Riverfront. Two stages and eight acts, all for free!

    Also enjoy the city’s new Brewfest from 2 to 5pm.

    The main amphitheater stage will feature Nine Days, an alternative rock band that had a Top 40 hit in the nineties entitled Absolutely (Story of a Girl); Hard Rock’s winner of it’s Battle of the Bands, Rosco Bandana; popular zydeco artist Sunpie Barnes and the Louisiana Sunspots; and local blues harp player and vocalist John Bull, with his band featuring guitarist Sheffield Walker.

    The singer/songwriter stage, which will be located at the base of the Commerce Street tunnel, will feature Grammy Award-winning blues artist Alvin Youngblood Hart; Latin jazz artists Roman Street; Americana singer Ana Egge; and rock/country guitarist Jess Meuse.

    Coolers are not allowed, but food and beverages will be available for purchase. Bring lawn chairs.

    The event will be preceded by the city’s new Riverbend Brewfest, which will feature craft beers and microbrews for tasting. The cost for Brewfest is $20 per person and participants will receive an etched glass for tasting.

    All this is made possible through a partnership between the City of Montgomery and The Alabama Roots Music Society.
