Bruce Ellis had a delightful Father’s Day Weekend and he’s ready to bring listeners the latest information about upcoming activities and events in Brookings-Harbor, Curry County, and beyond.

Bruce begins with his regular weekly update on the local entertainment and music scene. The Summer Concerts in the Park series continues in the month of July. Abbey Road Live will perform July 9, and on July 23, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys will present a rockabilly concert. These concerts are free to attend and take place at the Azalea Park Bandshell.

Bruce gives listeners a rundown of all the festivals taking place in the Brookings-Harbor area this summer. The Southern Oregon Kite Festival takes place July 14, 15, and 16 at the Kite field near Sporthaven Beach. On August 11, 12, and 13, the 7th Annual Pirates of the Pacific Festival will gather live musicians, food vendors, and historical reenactors at the boardwalk in the Port of Brookings-Harbor. Tickets are on sale for the Wild Rivers Music Festival on August 19, which will feature a huge music lineup at the Azalea Park Bandshell. The Slammin’ Labor Day Bash will take the place of the area’s traditional Slammin’ Salmon Derby on September 1, 2, and 3.

The singer-songwriter duo Blanchard Devine will perform a CD Release Concert for their new album The Journey at the Chetco Playhouse on June 27. (Kim Blanchard-Devine is host of KCIW’s popular Indie Music Roadshow.)

Other upcoming events include a live comedy night with Larry Omaha at the Elk Valley Casino on July 15, the Annual Del Norte Men’s Firecracker Tournament in Crescent City July 1 and 2 … and much, much more!

So sit back and – as Bruce puts it – let your ears do the walking.
