The Jazz Guys are one of the local acts lined up for this summer’s Entertainment in the Park musical series

Beginning next week, Entertainment in the Park returns to West Stettler Park for a summer series of music styles for all ages.

Stettler’s popular Jazz Guys kick off the Wednesday night series June 20.

“We have many performers new to the series and several who are returning from previous years,” said Lee Penner, director of parks and leisure services for the Town of Stettler.

“This year, we have added a children’s and family night on July 18. It will be a high-energy kids’ night.”

That show is expected to feature “Sing Out Summer Fun,” with Canadian children’s entertainer May Lambert.

Since 1993, Lambert has performed more than 2,500 shows at schools, music festivals and family events across Canada.

“We try to get more country and folk music, which is popular with the crowds,” Penner said.

Canada Day festivities on July 1 will feature the music of Jukebox Leigh, who was five years old when he started to perform and has wowed crowds with his showmanship, energy and musicality.

Jukebox Leigh and his all-star band are well-known for their renditions of No. 1 hits and their dance energy.

Stettler entertainer Bob Shortt hits the stage July 11 with his repertoire of music that he plays as a regular performer on Alberta Prairie Steam Tours.

Tim Proven returns July 25, while Steve Arsenault takes to the stage Aug. 1.

The concert on Aug. 8 features female singer Randi Boulton, a self-taught guitarist and vocalist.

“Often, I find myself alone with my piano and guitar playing melodic sounds with a flood of thoughts running through my mind, turning into a song and putting me in a place of peace and solitude,” writes Boulton.

Erin Ross performs Aug. 22. Her most recent release, “Another Empty Day,” was a big hit with fans and media.

Local band Loose Change closes out the concert series Aug. 29.

Those planning to attend Entertainment in the Park events are advised to bring lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy an evening concert.

More information is available on the Town of Stettler website.
