Summer Music Along the Lakeshore

After a busy day at the beach or at work, it's time to kick back and relax a while. What better way than to listen to some music. You can find performances almost any night of the week, all within a short driving distance. Area musicians as well as professional traveling groups are featured in these summertime performances. For the outdoor venues, grab your lawnchair or a blanket and get ready to be entertained. Outdoor performances are free; there may be a charge for an indoor venue performance.
