Bently Nevada Family Summer Concert Series

Douglas County Parks & Recreation Department 2021 Bently Family Summer Concert Series

Co-sponsored by Town of Minden & Young at Heart

Spend an evening with family and friends at Minden Park and enjoy music all summer long.

All concerts are from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Concerts are free of charge due to the generous contributions of local businesses and organizations.

 May 21st will kick off the 2021 series with Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Buttered Rum, a souped-up, east coast string band is the brainchild of five uniquely gifted musicians who weave their love of bluegrass, folk, jazz and soul into a riveting strain of Americana.  String bass and five-alarm fiddle merge with guitar, banjo, mandolin and drums to frame the voices of its two contrasting writers, fueling a dance party with roots in Appalachia and its branches in California. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love. Nearly twenty years into its journey HBR’s music, dreamed up in the back country of the High Sierra and the basements of San Francisco has found its way into the hearts, minds and bodies of fans nationwide. The band continues to tour year-round in support of its many albums and social causes. Don’t miss the chance to see them soon!
