Algoma’s free outdoor concert series, Algoma Summer Concerts in the Park, returns this summer every Thursday in July and August. Held at Heritage Park just off the City Marina, 60 Steele St., spectators can enjoy the view of Lake Michigan in the natural sloping amphitheater while enjoying some of their favorite bands, local and statewide. Concert goers are invited to bring their own chairs and blankets and relax.

Attendees may purchase locally made von Stiehl wine or Ahnapee Brewery beer at a cash bar, run in partnership with the Algoma Chamber and other area non-profits. Food will be offered each week by non-profits. Opening acts begin at 6 p.m. and main act at 7 p.m.

Those wishing to support the Concerts in the Park series may partake in a fundraiser put on by Hotel Stebbins on Wednesday, June 26. The first part of the fundraiser is a brat and trippe fry from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on the sidewalk outside the Hotel, 201 Steele St.

The Chamber Board of Directors will be helping to serve up the brats ($3), Belgian trippe ($3) and homemade Hotel Stebbins chips ($1). Delivery is available by calling the Hotel at 920-487-5521. Preorder forms are appreciated for large orders and can be obtained at or calling the Algoma Chamber 920-487-2041.

The second part of the Hotel Stebbins Concerts in the Park Fundraiser, “Swigs for Gigs”, takes place from 4:30-6 p.m. at the hotel bar and lounge. Proceeds from all drinks will be donated back to the series.

Their sound is edgy, entertaining and easy to dance to.

July 11: Big Mouth & The Power Tool Horns – Pictured above, a local band for over 25 years playing R&B, Horn Band Favorites, Funk and Big Band Music. Big Mouth was originally formed by Jay Whitney in 1980 in and around Flint, Michigan. A new Big Mouth was formed in Door County in 1990, with the Power Tool Horns added in the mid ’90s.

July 18: The Squeezettes – The four-time WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) award winning Squeezettes (2017, 2015, 2013, 2012 Best Polka Artist) are noted as one the state’s most unique attractions. Fronted by ex-burlesque chanteuse turned old school torch singer, Chanel le Meaux, the band plays an eclectic blend of “power polka” pop, rock, and other kitschy favorites. Their repertoire includes traditional polkas and waltzes, blended with pop hits from the 1950’s through the 80’s, along with tunes you never thought you’d hear played on accordion. Where else can you find a high energy band with adorable little ladies playing big, beautiful Baldoni accordions, a free range tuba player, and a drummer that sings and plays a pickle bucket?

July 25: Dirty Deuce – Door County’s Dirty Deuce is a genre-bending, foot-stomping, life-altering great time! Led by the hollering of “Reverend” Rob Atwood, the greasy sax of Stephen Cooper, bass of Greg Roteik, and skins beaten by Jamey Clark, this four-piece will give you an evening you won’t soon forget! With influences ranging from ZZ Top to Clutch, you never know what you’ll get when you show up at a Deuce show – but we can assure you, it’ll be a great time!

Aug. 1: Honeygoats – The Honeygoats formed in September 2016 out of five guys’ mutual love of a diverse range of music. From Bill Monroe to Punch Brothers, Waylon Jennings to James Brown, Led Zeppelin to A Tribe Called Quest. From dive bars to country clubs, there’s no audience too young, old, rich, poor, rugged, wild, or weird for The Honeygoats. “Goat On.”

Aug. 8: The Raglanders – a five-piece group from Green Bay who blur the lines between rock and country with a uniquely Midwestern take. They draw on traditional influences like Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and The Band along with newer voices such as Ryan Adams and Jason Isbell.

Aug. 15: 18 Days – Rock trio consisting of Jeff Stoeger: Lead Vox/Bass, John “Shed Dog” Shedivy: Vox/Guitar, and Dan Fulton: Drums.

Aug. 22: Copper Box – Fronted by Danny and Michelle Jerabek, Copper Box is a genre-bending celebration of fusion roots rock that channels the rowdy communal feel of a small-town party with their refreshing, gutsy, americana sound of artists like the legendary Esteban Jordan (the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion), Doug Sahm, Clifton Chenier, Los Lobos, and CCR…a must see!

Aug. 29: Badgergrass Bluegrass – Badgergrass specializes in the tight and lovely harmonies of authentic bluegrass, old country and early radio. Their shows combine a fresh take on bluegrass, mountain music, country heart-breakers, gospel and fancy picking.
