This year’s Picnic in the Park series was a huge success. Not only did we get to listen to the great performers listed below, we spent the evening greeting our neighbors, meeting new friends, and of course enjoying the music at Pioneer Park in Prineville from 6-8 pm each Wednesday!

2016 Concert Lineup:
July 20: The Coats
Pacific Northwest’s premiere a cappella band
Their intensely arranged yet hilarious, interactive performance blends music and comedy so seemlessly that there is no event, stage, or function of any size that they won’t be left stunned and wondering, “how did all of that come out of only four guys?!”
July 27: Design Band
If it’s fun you’re looking for, you’ve found it!
DESIGNBAND combines a youthful, energetic, cutting-edge presence with the incredible talent and musicianship of seasoned professionals to deliver the most diverse and exciting entertainment in the Pacific Northwest.
August 3: Jessie Leigh Band
The main genre is country, but this appeals to a wide range of music lovers.
Jessie Leigh infuses her rock and roll attitude into her country style and has been praised for her fresh, unique sound as well as her ability to take “old school music and make it relevant.”
August 10: June Bug (at the Fair!)
A high energy Folk-Rock trio that rocks and rolls until the cows come home.
If you like old timey music, you’ll find a lot to like here. They play a lot of different instruments…some of them well.
August 17: Derik Nelson & Family
A velvety three-part vocal harmonies only a family can deliver.
Creating an expansive wall of sound of limitless sonic possibilities by each playing many different instruments. This innovative technical marvel uses the latest in audio/video technology to take audiences on an aural and visual journey through time, space, an impressive array of landscapes, weather conditions, and musical “settings.”

August 31: Todd Haaby
A Picnic in the Park favorite!
This incredible guitarist fuels the fire of flamenco music. With a growing love of Spanish music and the fortunate opportunity to travel abroad, Todd developed a unique style all his own. From the riffs he learned as a kid listening to Edward Van Halen, to the explosive sounds of the Gypsy Kings, Todd has combined all of his musical experiences to write and define a flavor of music indicative of Nuevo Flamenco. all his own.
