On July 9, Luke G & the Candyhearts will kick off the CFCU Downtown Ithaca Summer Concert Series by transporting viewers to a decade that never was, with echoes of 1950s doo-wop & rock ‘n’ roll, but a time and place that is altogether new. Despite the name, there’s no saccharine in the Candyhearts; just unrefined sonic truth, barely hinged, desperate to make memories & make the people move. The Candyhearts are lead guitarist Jason Shegogue, drummer Liam Summers, & upright bassist Ben Gould.

Free and fun for the entire family, these melodic exhibitions will air at 6:00 pm each Thursday between July 9 and September 24, 2020. The concerts are traditionally held at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on the Commons; however, this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shows will appear virtually on Downtown Ithaca’s Facebook page until further notice.

The CFCU Summer concert series is presented by:  CFCU Community Credit Union

With support from the following:  Ithaca Marriott Downtown on the Commons, Seneca BeverageWagner VineyardsMaguire Subaru Hyundai Genesis of IthacaCayuga Radio Group, the State Theatre of Ithaca, and Green Street Pharmacy
