A previous version of this article incorrectly labeled the Flat Nasty band's genre. The band plays funk, rock, groove, soul and blues.

Wenatchee’s annual Summer Concert Series is back this year with five shows featuring a mix of local and non-local artists.

The Centennial Park concerts are free to the public and start at 7 p.m. on Fridays.

Wenatchee Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services recreation coordinator Sydney McElroy said she is “super excited” the city can put on the concerts after having to miss last year due to crowd restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These shows have a fun laid back environment, she said. A lot of people bring their own folding chairs to the park.

The lineup:

July 9: The Nate Weakley Project - classic and alternative rock

July 16: Flat Nasty - dance oriented funk, rock, groove, soul and blues band

July 23: Eddie Manzanarez - Latin jazz and salsa

July 30: Kevin Jones Band - rock

August: 6: Seth Garrido - guitarist, singer and songwriter

Concert Fridays will also have a taco truck and activities for children. It’s an “event for everybody,” she said.
