GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- After more than two decades of entertaining crowds in downtown Grand Rapids, the popular WLAV Blues Series is being moved from Rosa Parks Circle to the Deltaplex Arena and Conference Center.

The series also has a new name:  97LAV Summertime Blues Series presented by Orion Construction.

WLAV says that after 23 years, the decision to change the venue was influenced by a few different factors:  free parking for cars & motorcycles, beer, and the ability to move indoors in the event of inclement weather.

The new series is beginning June 17 and ending on August 12.

Here’s a complete schedule of dates and artist:

June 17 – Jarekus Singleton

June 24 – Wayne Baker Brooks

July 15 – Larry McCray Band

July 22 – Nick Moss

July 29 – Scott Bratcher

August 5 – Big James and the Chicago Playboys

August 12 – Walter Trout

Music will begin at 6:30pm.
