A sure sign of summer is the return of Music at Harry’s Place! The series of seven free concerts will begin on Friday, June 18 with the showband tunes of Little Vito and the Torpedoes sponsored by Beloit Health System. The concerts, now in their 12th year, draw residents of all ages to the Harry C. Moore Pavilion at Riverside Park.
Little Vito and the Torpedoes will be making their Harry’s Place debut, however are well known throughout the state at festivals and concerts. The very popular 5-piece band draws crowds from all over the region with their Rock, Variety and Show Band performances. We are very fortunate to have them here in Beloit.
Beloit Health System will host the Swing with Us at Harry’s Place night starting at 7 p.m. and will offer an informational table for those interested in health system services.
“The hospital, now with the Clinic as the new Beloit Health System, has sponsored the first concert since the beginning of Music at Harry’s Place in 1999,” explains Sarah Starmer, Beloit Health System spokesperson. “We want to continue this tradition and encourage everyone to join in the fun of enjoying music and friends by the river.”
The concert begins at 7 p.m. with food and beverage vendors set up for business by 5:30. You are encouraged to bring your own chairs or blankets for seating. The concerts are a favorite for stateline residents of all ages.
