Sonic Lunch returns on June 7th! The live music series was started by Bank of Ann Arbor in 2008 as a way to support local artists and enrich the community with some top-notch entertainment in the middle of their workday. The weather is getting warmer and we’re all likely to start taking our lunch breaks from dayjobs out doors: just make sure that on Thursdays, you head over to Liberty Plaza, where you’ll find emanations of festival-scale music concerts.
“We are extremely excited to announce the first half of our 2018 Sonic Lunch lineup” said Tim Marshall, President and CEO of Bank of Ann Arbor. “There is an incredible amount of talent coming to the Liberty Plaza stage for our eleventh season hosting the concert series.It has always been important to support the local arts and culture of our community and Sonic Lunch is an important part of that commitment.”
New this year: Openers! Whereas before, you’d find single artists like Laith Al-Saadi, Theo Katzman, JR JR (pictured above), or Jessica Hernandez, you can actually experience two bands during your lunches… With opening acts starting at 11:30am and headliners starting just after, around the usual time, 12 noon. Ann Arbor’s own Nadim Azzam is opening things up on June 7th, with Moon Taxi.
And stay tuned for more announcements via Sonic Lunch’s website!
Said Marshall, “…by contributing the necessary resources into a community event like Sonic Lunch, Bank of Ann Arbor helps make the greater Ann Arbor region a better place. I hope that many can set aside time to stop by Liberty Plaza and enjoy the 2018 version of Sonic Lunch with family and friends.”
