Music City Series: Linzzi Zaorski
McCall Plaza
Saturday, June 3rd 8:30-10pm
Linnzi Zaorski is an American jazz singer and songwriter based in New Orleans, Louisiana. One evening she stumbled upon a traditional jazz band performing at a dive bar in the French Quarter and began singing with them regularly. Linnzi and this group of musicians eventually coalesced to form The New Orleans Jazz Vipers, and they began performing regularly at the Spotted Cat Music Club and in other venues around New Orleans in the early 2000s. She started her own band, Delta Royale, in 2002 and has since recorded six albums under her own name with some of the finest musicians in New Orleans. This concert is completely free to the public, and the perfect interlude to a great night out in Historic Downtown Plano. Bar service will be available on site, provided by Angela’s at the Crosswalk. more info

Beatles Night
Oak Point Ampitheater
Saturday, June 3rd, 7-10pm
Hard Nights Day is one of the best known Beatles cover band in the North Texas Area. The Revolution 9 stage show has been meticulously crafted to bring the music of the ’60s to the public in a new, refreshing way. The songs… from the very beginnings of Beatlemania and the Mod movement in swinging London to the psychedelic sounds of San Francisco… have been carefully chosen to give audiences their well-known favorites as well as lesser-known gems that shine with brilliance on the live stage. Kids 5 & under are free. Picnic baskets, coolers, blankets, and/or lawn chairs are welcome and encouraged. No pets please! Gates into the amphitheater will open at 6pm. Box office for on-site sales will open at 5pm.
