2023 Concerts in the Park set for September 3 & 10, Wake Forest Unplugged offered as part of September 3 concert

Friday, July 21, 2023 - 12:19pm

Spend a couple Sunday evenings in September with family and friends at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road, while enjoying some foot-tapping, finger-snapping good times during the 2023 Concerts in the Park. “SNAP” will headline the first concert on Sunday, Sept. 3, followed by “The Soul Psychedlique Orchestra” on Sunday, Sept. 10.

As full-time musicians, SNAP can transition seamlessly from crooning classic R&B, to banging out bombastic pop-punk, and throw in some house-thumping hip-hop and classic rock to top it off. They are masters of mash-up, rulers of remix, and monarchs of medleys.

The Soul Psychedelique Orchestra has an extensive music library than spans style from the 1940’s Big Band sounds to Beach Music, R&B, to Rock, Reggae, Latin and the best of today’s music. 

Free and open to everyone, these performances are scheduled from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Joyner Park amphitheater. Attendees are invited to bring a picnic, leashed pets, a blanket, or lawn chair and enjoy the music. However, alcoholic beverages, smoking, and unleashed pets are prohibited at Joyner Park.

As a bonus, on September 3 from 5-7 p.m., the Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Advisory Board will provide an array of organized games and activities as part of the 12th annual Wake Forest Unplugged. This free, family-friendly event offers area residents a unique opportunity to “disconnect” from their cell phones, computers and other electronic devices and “reconnect” with their community, friends, and family by engaging in healthier, more active pursuits.
