Earlier this week the Bellevue Downtown Association kicked off a 10-week run of free live concerts thought the summer. Live music will take place in downtown Bellevue on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 1:30 PM. The live music will be made up of live local bands.

“Summers in Downtown Bellevue are the perfect time to relax with a friend and listen to live music,” says BDA President Patrick Bannon. “From reggae to blues and country, to disco-soul; there is something for everyone.”

The event has historically hosted an annual Rockaraoke contest where contestants can sing with a live band. This year will be no different, Rockaraoke will take place on August 17th at Bellevue Connection (the old Bellevue Galleria).  If you’re interested in compete email tyler@bellevuedowntown.org.

One Comment

  1. Over the years, I have not attended this “Live Lunch” concert because the music is boring. I like a mix of funk/jazz/soul—not much here. Maybe they’ve changed? Bellevue is very boring dead beat environment that seems to be slowly changing.
