Summer is getting close and that means live, local outdoor music in the area.

104-5 KDAT is proud to partner with the Marion Chamber of Commerce and other fantastic local sponsors, for another season of "Uptown Getdown" in City Square Park. Thursday nights in August from 6-9 p.m., enjoy free live music from the lineup of bands that has just been announced.

  • August 1: The Flaming Camaros (featuring a variety of music genres and eras ranging from Buddy Holly and Johnny Cash to Cheap Trick to Foo Fighters)
  • August 8: Lonesome Road (country favorites)
  • August 15: Dogs on Skis (Iowa Rock and Roll Hall Fame band with a wide variety of music)
  • August 22: Airwaves (classic rock)

Produced by the Marion Chamber and with support from the City of Marion, admission to these Thursday night summer concerts is free. We join proud partners Farmers State Bank, Fosters Heating and Air Conditioning, ImOn Communications, and MercyCare Community Physicians in supporting this event.

We're looking forward to seeing you at these shows again this year, and you can learn more here.
