Summer Concert Series Coming to Andalusia!
Part of our mission at the Andalusia Area Chamber of Commerce is to initiate programs and services that enhance the quality of life for residents of Andalusia and Covington County. July is a great time of year to enjoy a more relaxed schedule and spend quality time outdoors. This year, the Chamber has partnered with the City of Andalusia to put together a free, family-friendly summer concert series on the lawn at Springdale on Thursday nights starting July 9th.
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy live music performed by talented musicians, all with local ties. There will be fun for all ages as we will have Hawaiian shave ice provided by Kona Ice, a foam play area, a photo booth, fireworks, and of course great music.
Our local musicians like Scott Rogers from PowerSouth, Tripp Bass from the Bass Agency, and Evan Brooks, Bob Brooks’ son are all excited to take stage and have a good time with their friends and neighbors. Up and coming talent like Kat Dean and Jamal Curry will also be a part of the show as opening acts for our “headliners”.
