FishHawk Ranch’s free summer “Concerts for a Cause” series gets under way this month, featuring more Fridays filled with rockin’ music at Park Square and the opportunity to support Feeding America Tampa Bay.
The concerts are free and open to the general public but all concert-goers are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items with them for Feeding America Tampa Bay. Last year, the annual series collected more than one ton of food for the nonprofit, which distributes the food to charities throughout Tampa Bay.
Concerts will be held every Friday at 7 p.m. beginning June 29 and running through Aug. 17.
The series will kick off June 29 with the return of the Sarasota-based '60s tribute band, Yesterdayze.
A hit last year with Park Square concert-goers, Yesterdayze describes itself as a "high energy six-piece band with great vocals, re-creating your favorite songs from the '60s"
The band performs Top 40 hits from 1960 to 1969 including music by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the 5th Dimension, Steppenwolf, the Rascals, Elvis, Aretha Franklin and Jimi Hendrix.
The series also will feature the return of the St. Petersburg-based Bus Stop Band July 6, playing classic rhythm and blues plus Top 40 hits from the 1950s to the '80s.
The July 13 concert will feature the local band, Category Three, performing high-energy cover songs including ZZ Top and Journey.
Valrico-based Crystal Blue returns to Park Square July 13, performing a variety of popular music, old and new.
