Each Wednesday evening during the summer, a group of excellent musicians provide a wonderful concert in beautiful Ludington Park on the lake in downtown Escanaba. A wide variety of music is played. A little something for everyone.

It's always fun to see this band perform at the Ludington Park bandshell in Escanaba on Wednesday nights. Unfortunately, they got rained out when we went to see them this year.

Free open air concerts in beautiful Ludington Park. Bruce Cassell leads this group of talented local musicians and gives young and old alike a reason to gather and enjoy music in the park.

I love listening to the Escanaba City Band. Particularly when they play out at the state park at Fayette. They are very good and I also like listening to them when they play in Ludington Park.
