Lawrenceville is bringing back its summer concert series.

The concerts, which kick off May 17 on the Lawrenceville Lawn, will be held on the third Friday of each month through August, except for the July concert, which will be held on the fourth Friday of the month. All concerts begin at 8 p.m.

“Lawrenceville’s Summer Concert Series provides families in and around the area with a free outdoor activity to enjoy while also having the opportunity to see what’s new around the Lawrenceville Square,” said Lawrenceville Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson. “With new shops, events, and restaurants, there’s always something to see or do in Lawrenceville.”

This year’s bands will pay tribute to the Allman Brothers, Prince and Zac Brown, and, based on popular demand, The Tams are also back.

Downtown restaurants and food trucks will be open for business on concert nights, so the city recommends making reservations or coming early, hungry and thirsty.

Concert attendees are free to bring lawn chairs or blankets, but no grills or open flames will be allowed in the park. Pets are also prohibited.

While the outdoor concerts are free, sponsorships starting at $500 are available by calling 678-407-6653 or visiting lawrencevillega.org or facebook.com/cityoflawrenceville for the latest updates.

A new-to-2019 VIP experience will also be announced later this year.

The concerts will be:

• Allman Brothers Tribute Band — May 17;

• Purple Madness, tribute to Prince — June 21;

• 20-Ride, Zac Brown tribute band — July 26; and

• The Tams — Aug. 23.
