‘Sounds of Summer’ concerts return to Home Place Park

MADISON – Madison Arts Alliance urges residents to mark their calendars for the 2024 summer concert lineup for “Sounds of Summer.”

The concert venue is Home Place Park, 100 Shorter St., two streets south of Main Street in downtown Madison. The concerts are free.

Madison Arts Alliance sponsors this concert series and presents the event in partnership with Madison Visionary Partners.

* May 30, The Zooks – Series opener with the return of a crowd favorite. The band describes itself as people “all about having fun.” The Zooks often welcome surprise guests.

The Zooks first organized in 2000 on Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands when band members met each other because of their jobs with a contractor for the U.S. Army, band spokesperson Randy Razook said.

The Zooks perform classic rock anthems, Motown tunes and rhythm-and-blues standards. Their dance music hails from the well-known classics in pop and rock from the 1960s through 1980s. Band members pride themselves in putting smiles on the audience’s faces.
