Billing itself as "the Midwest's only official rock 'n' roll beach party band," Bob & The Beachcombers will play 1960s surfing hits on the Douglas County Courthouse lawn in Alexandria on Thursday, July 6.

Their playlist also includes 1950s classic rock 'n' roll and favorites from the 1970s and 1980s.

In case of rain, the beach party will move to the Alexandria Area High School Performing Arts Center.

The concert starts at 7 p.m. and is the seventh in a series of weekly performances scheduled throughout the summer. Organized by The Red Willow Arts Coalition, the free concerts are sponsored by Anderson Funeral Home and Elden's Fresh Foods as well as nightly sponsors. Thursday's music is sponsored by Larson Insurance and Schuette State Farm Insurance.

This is the seventh season for "Concerts on the Courthouse lawn." Red Willow encourages concert-goers to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Proceeds from popcorn sales will support a new playground for Miltona Science Magnet School.
