Drive-in Concert Series

Jenna Mammina

The Andrew Fisher Quartet

Doc Revolver

Sunday, August 9, 2020

Gates open 5 pm; music begins 6 pm

One Ticket per Carload (up to 6 people)

 

Live music is back at The Mendel Center! This time we’re taking the fun outdoors onto the spacious grounds of Lake Michigan College where we can all socially distance and have a great time.

Here’s how it works. One ticket gets your carload of friends and family members (up to 6 people) into the lot on the Grand Upton Hall side of The Mendel Center. Park and get ready to enjoy the show from inside your vehicle by listening to the FM radio broadcast, or break out your lawn chairs and safely social distance with your group in your personal tailgate space.

 

Jenna Mammina

Recognized as one of the leading women of jazz/pop crossover for three years in a row by Jazziz Magazine, Jenna Mammina’s live performances capture her audiences and hold them like butterflies in the palm of her hand. “Jenna could sing a page from the phone book and make it sound like her own private piece of the sky,” writes Grapevine Culture critic Kimberlye Gold.

 

The Andrew Fisher Quartet

The Andrew Fisher Quartet is a neo-soul jazz group from right here in southwest Michigan. They specialize in blending traditional genres such as soul, funk, R&B, Mowtown, and more while using the language of improvisation and jazz. Since its inception in 2015, AFQ showcases the unique talents of its members on well-known songs as well as on original music from their 2019 EP.

 

Doc Revolver

Doctors and engineers by day, musicians by night, Doc Revolver is as eclectic as the music they play. You’ll be sure to recognize some of the songs they cover, spanning multiple genres including rock, pop, alternative, indie, and the occasional country song. 

 

Safety First

The well-being of our fans, performers, crew, and staff is our first priority. The Drive-in Concert Series is set up to promote social distancing in accordance with governmental guidelines. We encourage you to stay within your assigned parking and tailgate spaces. Mask wearing is required when you leave that space. Each restroom is equipped with hand sanitizer.

While we have taken expanded safety measures, we need your cooperation help keep everyone as safe as possible. Please follow all posted instructions and adhere to the guidelines that have been put in place. An inherent risk of COVID-19 is present anywhere people gather. By attending the Drive-in Concert Series at The Mendel Center, you voluntarily assume all risks related to potential COVID-19 exposure.
