Take your choice - indoors or out - you won't be disappointed with entertainment choices on Marietta Square on Friday, August 27th. The Summer Friday Concert Series continues in Glover Park. This month features Livin' Large, a popular oldies band.
The concert is free of charge but if you're looking for a "front-row seat," a limited number of tables can be reserved -- $45 for tables of six and $55 for tables for eight. Tables reservations are taken on a first come basis and may be reserved the first working day of each month.
Blankets and lawn chairs may be set up in the park after 4 p.m. Personal tables are not permitted in the park, however they may be set up on North Park Square after 5:30 p.m. Bring a picnic dinner (beer and wine are permitted) or dine in one of the many fine restaurants located on the square. The performance will run from 8:00 to 10:00 PM.
For more information, call Marietta's Parks and Recreation Department at 770-794-5601.
Another option would be to meet with friends and enjoy a beverage and an incredible view of Glover Park and Kennesaw Mountain from the popular Cobb Terrace on the rooftop of The Earl Strand Theatre. The terrace was voted "Best Place to See & Be Seen" by Cobb Life Magazine in 2010. No cover charge. Beer, wine & cocktails are available for your refreshment. Cash and credit accepted. 18+ to enjoy the view with friends. 21+ to enjoy alcoholic beverages. The Strand does check IDs!
If an inside venue is more to your liking, hear Steve Forbert play on the stage of The Strand. An accomplished performer whose career spans thirty years, Forbert is best known for his hit single "Romeo's Tune" in 1980. The song peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Throughout his career, he has recorded 13 studio albums, ten live albums and three DVD releases. His most recent album The Place and the Time was released in 2009.
His blending of rock, folk and country have drawn comparisons to Bob Dylan throughout his career. He has consistently toured North America through his 30 year career. Forbert's songs have been recorded by many artists including Rosanne Cash and Keith Urban.
Take your pick - either indoors or out - you will spend a most enjoyable Friday evening on Marietta Square!
