Sounds at Sundown concerts make triumphant return

Fridays in June to sway with music and munchies


MURPHY (May 19, 2021) The return of Sounds at Sundown at Murphy Central Park each Friday night in June marks the resumption of an eclectic assortment of musical genres and tasty eats in a comfortable, familiar setting.

                “Suspended last year due to the restrictions associated with the pandemic, the popular concert series roars back this year with four exceptionally strong musical acts that represent a wide spectrum of styles, sure to please every taste,” says Kayla McFarland, Special Events Coordinator for the City of Murphy.

                The concerts are held at the acoustically-engineered Central Park amphitheater, 550 North Murphy Road. Food trucks will open their counters at 7 p.m. with music starting at 8 p.m. each of the four evenings.

                Starting off the revived concert series is Vocal Trash on June 4. This group is not only musically entertaining, but also carries a strong environmental message. The band plays an engaging array of musical numbers and does so on recycled instruments.

                On June 11, fans of boy bands will be highly pleased with the Larger Than Life band. The group is billed as the ultimate boy band tribute, covering lots of favorites from the phenomenally successful boy bands of the recent past.

                Toe tappers to country western rhythms will be eager to put the June 18 concert on their must-see schedule. Neon Circus will take the stage pumping out the songs made famous by Brooks & Dunn. Stetson hats and Laredo boots are optional.

                And, rounding out the series is perennial favorite Emerald City Band on June 25. Emerald City Band is a local legend and consistently draws a very animated and appreciative audience. Their showband presentation is filled with the glitz and glamour of a Las Vegas review.

                “While the amphitheater is a very comfortable location, attendees may want to bring a lawn chair or blanket and some bug spray, but please, no glass containers,” said McFarland. “We’re also asking everyone to follow the latest CDC recommendations for everyone’s safety.”

                This year’s principal sponsor is Glazer Family Dentistry. Sponsorships are still being accepted. Information on sponsorships or concert questions can be directed to the staff at the Murphy Community Center at 972-468-4444, or directly to McFarland at
