28 May 10 Levitt Opens Summer Series with Firefall

Email this Post Print this Post

Firefall, one of the most popular pop bands from the 1970s and ‘80s, opens the free summer concert series tonight at the Levitt Pavillion in Arlington.

Firefall

Among the hits by Firefall are “You Are the Woman,” “Just Remember I Love You,” “Cinderella” and “Strange Way.”  The show begins at 8pm. The band is sponsored by the Sanford House Inn and Spa.

Tomorrow night, the Levitt welcomes The Tejas Brothers, sponsored by Al Clark State Farm Insurance. Since their first album in 2008 went number two in the nation on the Americana charts, The Tejas Brothers have been making the accordion cool with an original sound born on a little stage in the Fort Worth Stockyards. The high-energy band breaks musical boundaries with a show that’s packed with original tunes, catchy melodies and unforgettable hooks with a sprinkling of new spice given to familiar classics. The Tejas Brothers are fun, funny, amazing, breathtaking, inspiring, and honest – making their audiences fall in love with them at every performance!
 
With a sound dancing between gut-bucket soul and N’awlins grit-down funk and horn-fueled Motown pop, Mingo Fishtrap is an anomaly in contemporary music. You can hear their indescribable brand of music as they finish the Levitt Pavilion’s opening weekend on Sunday. With each new recording, the group gravitates more toward its 1967 musical roots. In their time together since their University of North Texas jazz studies days, Mingo Fishtrap has performed with such artists as Sting, Blues Traveler, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Little Feat and Johnny Lang. Mingo is an infectious marriage of classic soul sounds and gritty, horn-driven funky stuff.
