The concerts, held from 5 to 8:30 p.m., kick off June 5 with a night of reggae, soul and blues featuring One World Tribe, Empress & the Royals, Slyboots Circus.

Theme nights are back with such new events as a "Blues 4 Vets" night marking the return of Buffalo native Peter Case, "Latin at Larkin" on July 5, a celebration of the Colored Musicians Club Centennial on July 26 and a special preview of the Music is Art festival on Aug. 30. The popular "South Buffalo Night" returns with Brian Higgins & the Exchange Street Band on Aug. 2.
