FBTF ft. Oblates of Blues
Hailing from Notre Dame, the Oblates of Blues are known to offer up a intellectually smokin’ mix of Chicago-style Blues with a shot of South Bend soul. Around since the beginning of time, the band has been composed of faculty, post-doctoral scholars, under-and-graduate students, and Notre Dame graduates who are devotees of both Theology and the Blues. Since their debut at Legends in 2000, the Oblates have exploded onto the local blues scene, playing shows ranging from the legendary Midway Tavern to Notre Dame’s new Irish Green as well as at community events in South Bend, Mishawaka, and St. Joe’s.
Fridays by the Fountain
An outdoor lunch-time concert series, Fridays by the Fountain on the Jon R. Hunt Plaza is a summertime tradition in downtown South Bend! Each summer between the months of June and August, the concert series runs every Friday and features live entertainment from local Blues, Jazz, Rock, Folk, and Country bands. The concerts are free and run from 11:45am – 1:15pm.
Food vendors are available and they offer a variety of lunchtime favorites including pizza, sandwiches, salads and smoothies, or you may choose to bring your own! Tables are set in and around the plaza to give concertgoers a space to eat – or bring a blanket and relax on the lawn.
