NEWCITY Hosts Wedding Banned for "Sounds of Summer" Concert Series

July 27, 2023 | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

NEWCITY, Lincoln Park’s outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment district, will host Wedding Banned for their annual “Sounds of Summer'' outdoor music series benefitting ALS Therapy Development Institute. Scheduled for select Thursdays throughout the months of July and August, “Sounds of Summer” is free to attend and highlights & supports a local non-profit who will receive 100% of sales from beverages sponsored by Constellation Brands in addition to raffles and donations. 


After being banned from their hometown of Gas City, Indiana for being too wild, Wedding Banned relocated to Chicago and the legend began and is still going strong, 17 years later! Dubbed the “World’s Greatest Wedding Band” this interactive group plays tons of rad 80’s music and guilty pleasures you and your friends love, whether they'll admit it or not. Additionally, the evening’s featured charity partner ALS Therapy Development Institute is a non-profit biotechnology research organization focused on finding treatments for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. With a staff including more than 30 scientists, the organization operates a research and development program centered on ALS with 86 cents from every dollar going directly to ALS research.


While there is limited on-site seating on the plaza, there is plenty of room for blankets and chairs, so NEWCITY welcomes community friends, family, and neighbors to come out and enjoy an evening of live music! While free to attend, registration is required for all “Sounds of Summer” events.
