Monument Square - Portland, ME
This event is ALL AGES
The Portland Downtown District and the State Theatre are excited to announce the artists for the 2014 Alive @ 5 free outdoor concerts this summer in Monument Square from 5pm -7:30pm. On July 10, The London Souls will tear it up with their classic, hard-hitting rock and roll with special guests the Kenya Hall Band. On August 7, the Spirit Family Reunion will hit the stage with local stompers Ghost of Paul Revere. Each free concert is expected to bring about 2,000 people to the square.
The London Souls’ unique reinterpretation of classic hard-hitting rock and roll formulae recalls elements of the past with an ever-present boundless energy, fit to cement their place in the future. The duo have built a fervent and dynamic fan base leveraged by their ever sustained reputation for consistently well-rehearsed and impassioned, explosive live performances. The band’s celebrated sound and spirit draws significant influence from the driving force of British rock pioneers Cream and Led Zeppelin to billowing and bouncing funk and soul, to the layered harmonies and memorable hooks of The Beatles and The Hollies, to the contemporary psychedelia of My Morning Jacket among many more.
Opening for the Souls will be the Kenya Hall Band. This Portland funk and soul band is fronted by one of the most charismatic singers you’ll see on stage, and backed by some of the most talented and funky players in the Northeast.
