With patio season approaching, The City is looking for local musicians to take the stage at the Ross Street Patio Parties this summer.

“This year we are looking for some awesome musical talent to play the Patio; bands that are local, original and interactive with their performance,” said Peter McGee, Special Events Programmer. “We know how much great talent Red Deer and area has to offer, and we look forward to bringing that talent to the Patio once again.”

Local musicians are invited to apply for a performance time at one of the four summer concerts. This concert series runs from June through September on the first Friday of each month, and features live music from all genres. This marks the fifth year of the Ross Street Patio Parties in Red Deer’s downtown core.

“This popular summer event has proven to be a great place for local emerging artists to gain exposure, hone their performance skills and earn some money,” said McGee. “We are excited to once again bring our downtown core to life with this vibrant concert series.”

Applications can be downloaded from www.reddeer.ca/rossstreetpatio or picked up at most music venues around the city, City Hall and at the Culture Services Centre (3827 - 39 Street). Those interested in applying are reminded that the deadline to submit is April 1, 2016. Participating artists will receive an honorarium for their work.
