Provo Rooftop Concert Series Returns for Eighth Year
Local Standouts The Aces to Headline Show
PROVO, Utah – Apr 11, 2017 – The Provo tradition that draws thousands is back for another summer of the Rooftop Concert Series, and after four years of opening shows The Aces will headline the concert for the first time.
"Honestly, with the national success and attention The Aces are getting right now, we're sort of afraid we might not get them back on our stage for a while,” said Courtney Kendrick, event co-founder and sponsor.
The local band premiered their debut EP, I Don’t Like Being Honest, this month after signing with Red Bull Records in October. This fall they take off on a busy tour, but Utah will always be where they got their start. The Aces have been playing shows together in Provo since middle school.
“So many of us have watched them literally grow up on stage and they've turned into a very tight, current, pop band,” Kendrick said. “See them now at Rooftop, so you can tell everyone you knew them when."
The show headlined by The Aces and opened by other talented local bands, Foreign Figures and Festival People, is just the first of this year’s packed Rooftop Concert Series. Come back for more music the first Friday of every month this May through September.
"Thanks to Pepsi, Provo City support, and a partnership with UVU we are looking forward to an exciting and surprising 2017 season,” Kendrick said. “We hope to create another series where everyone in our community--young and old alike--come out and enjoy the rich musical experiences we have in our own town. We love to see families at our concerts, teenagers, college students, seniors all together dancing and singing like only we can do in summertime in Provo."
The first concert of this year’s series will be on May 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the NuSkin Plaza on 100 West and Center Street in Provo. Title sponsors this year include Provo City, Pepsi, and Utah Valley University. The Rooftop Concert Series began in 2010 as a part of the Center Focus initiative to revitalize downtown Provo. The series has grown to attract thousands of people per concert and an all-star lineup of local and nationally recognized musicians.
