LEWISTON – Don’t miss the music happening of the year as the Lewiston Council on the Arts brings back Lewiston’s own 1960s rock musicians and friends for the 10th annual Summer of ‘69!

Join the fun at 6 p.m. July 11 in the Hennepin Park Gazebo at Fourth and Center streets. This fun-filled evening features favorites from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s, performed by members of Lewiston’s super-groups such as the County Orphanage, the Invaders and the Lewiston All Stars.

Special guest and Grammy Award winner Gary Baker, former Invader and County Orphanage bass player, will perform some of his No. 1 songs. Baker has worked with performers such as the Backstreet Boys, Alabama, Lone Star and All-4-One and has created such hits as “I Swear,” “I’m Already There,” and “Once Upon a Lifetime.” This year, Baker will team up with family members and former local bandmates.

Ties to Lewiston are so strong that some musicians and audience members come from as far away as Idaho, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Virginia to enjoy the event.
