Argenta Plaza Summer Music Series will be the third Saturday in June, July and August with an opening performance at 5 p.m. and headliner at 6:30 p.m. Attendees are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs and are encouraged to bring food and drinks from Argenta restaurants.

Argenta Plaza Summer Music Series Lineup
“We wanted to offer a variety of musical genres as well as show off some of our well-loved Arkansas musicians,” Warden said. “A Year & A Day is a classic-style rock; The Rodney Block Collective is a quartet that plays a variety, and The Gravel Yard is more of a bluegrass.”
The Argenta Plaza Summer Music Series kicks off June 19 with the local band, A Year & A Day, known for classic-style rock in the tradition of bands like Pink Floyd, Yes and Jefferson Starship. The June concert also coincides with “Argenta Dogtown Throwdown,” during which Main Street closes Friday afternoon through Sunday for outdoor dining and live music.
