With a captivating combination of vintage roots rock and powerhouse vocals, rising talent Nina and The Buffalo Riders return to Michigan Legacy Art Park to open the Summer Sounds Concert Series on July 5.

Led by Nina Ledesma’s commanding voice, the band plays original music that weaves in and out of genres but maintains a familiar classic rock feeling. Their fun, energetic set and throwback feel has made Nina and The Buffalo Riders a mainstay on the festival circuit and appeals equally to music lovers from across generations.

The concert kicks off the 24th annual Summer Sounds series at Michigan Legacy Art Park which will also feature performances from Last Gasp Collective, The Go Rounds with Charlie Millard Band, Channing and Quinn, The Bootstrap Boys and The Ragbirds.

As an exciting new feature for attendees, Steelhead Cafe food truck will be on site serving up American food favorites and their signature broasted fish. 

All Summer Sounds concerts are family friendly and free to kids ages 12 and under. Tickets are available at MyNorthTickets.com and at the door.

The Art Park’s outdoor amphitheater provides a truly memorable venue to experience world-class performances—nestled amongst 30 acres of Northern Michigan woods. In the event of rain, concerts will be held indoors at nearby Crystal Mountain.

Concerts take place from 7–9 p.m. Rides from the trailhead parking lot to the amphitheater are available beginning at 6:15 p.m. for those with limited mobility. Guests are welcome to bring picnics, camp chairs and blankets. Free parking is available at the Art Park entrance with additional parking on Mountain Woods Drive, adjacent to the park or at any public Crystal Mountain lot.
