The warmth of the late-day sun on your face . . . the swell of music and the smell of popcorn carried on an evening breeze . . . Brandon’s new and improved summer concert series have attracted over 100 folks to each performance and over 200 to some of them!!

Every Wednesday night in July and August, the beautiful grounds behind the Brandon Inn are the site of a free concert for our community. Rain location (bite your tongue) is in the Brandon Inn ballroom. We have an eclectic line-up of bands on tap. Join the folks who come out and relax with some quality music with their friends and neighbors. The kids have fun running around the pretty grounds next to the Neshobe river, and we all enjoy free popcorn! Adult beverages are served up by the Brandon Inn, available in the outdoor lounge area, so you don’t miss a note of the music, .

Be part of live community music!  Make a secure online donation here to help put on the 2019 Brandon Summer Concert Series.  Many thanks to the generosity of Sarah and Louis Pattis and the Brandon Inn for sharing their space with us!
