MERIDIAN – The Bri Kleiner Park Live free outdoor concert series will bring lots of great music to Meridian’s Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park on alternating Friday nights this summer! In all, six bands will provide free 7:00 pm concerts from the stage of the Kleiner Park Bandshell. Kleiner Park is located at 1900 N. Records Avenue in Meridian. The concert series is sponsored by Bri, an active adult luxury apartment community owned by Brighton and located adjacent to Kleiner Park.
The Bri Kleiner Park Live concert dates and bands are:
June 9 -- Billy Blues Band (blues, rock, funk, soul)
June 23 – The Last Call (classic rock)
July 7 – Casio Dreams (80s tribute band)
July 21 – Jukebox (pop music)
August 4 – Push2Play (folk rock, blues, alternative, Americana)
August 18 – The Noteables (rock, country, blues, disco)
Those who attend the concerts are encouraged to bring low-profile folding chairs, lawn blankets, and their favorite snacks or picnic food. Kleiner Park’s concession stand will also be open on these evenings.
On alternating Fridays, when a concert is not being held in Kleiner Park, Sparklight Movie Night in Meridian will take place in Settlers Park, offering free outdoor showings of family-friendly movies. These movie dates are June 2, 16, and 30; July 14 and 28; and August 11.
“We’re really enthused about our new more diverse schedule of Friday night entertainment offerings,” says Recreation Coordinator Renee White. “By alternating our outdoor concerts and movie nights, we hope to appeal to an even broader audience of Meridian residents.”
