    Concerts in the Park - Don Middlebrook and Pearl Divers

    Concerts in the Park, one of Kalamazoo’s long standing traditions offered Sunday’s in June, July and August in Bronson Park, delivers a unique offering unlike other concert series in Kalamazoo. The 2015 season has an exciting mix of music genres – jazz, blues, gospel, big band, bluegrass, American roots and Broadway

    Each concert is free, and is friendly for the entire family. Bringing picnic meals (no grilling allowed), blankets or lawn chairs is encouraged. Each concert begins at 4pm and the concerts’ rain location is First United Methodist Church, just across from Bronson Park (unless otherwise noted).

    June 28 - Don Middlebrook and Pearl Divers

    Starting in 1991, Don Middlebrook and Pearl Divers began a musical quest up and down the west coast of Michigan with little idea of where it might lead. Always directed by a new song, a new adventure, and an occasional cold beer, what began as fun and frolic has turned into 24 years of travel and musical bliss. Looking back over those last 24 years, 9 CDs have been recorded and over 150 dates played each year. Airplay has become common place, like that found at WCSX FM in Detroit, and internet web play has had international activity. Don and the band have performed on national radio with Mitch Albom and G. Gordon Liddy, they have toured and recorded with Greg "Fingers" Taylor, Jimmy Buffett's harmonica player.

    As a special treat to concert goers PopCity Popcorn will be selling popcorn and water in Bronson Park.

    Concerts in the Park is a program of the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, with support from the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation and the City of Kalamazoo. Additional support provided by WMUK 102.1, PNC, Kalamazoo First Presbyterian Church and Adams Outdoor.
