The summer concert season is gearing back up in downtown Jefferson City, starting on May 18.

Soulroot Band will be kicking off the first Thursday Night Live of the year, followed by Kricket Alley in June and Eastern Heights in July. Opening for Soulroot will be Ross Steiner and Miklos Shaffer.

The purpose of Thursday Night Live is to support the downtown businesses, according to Angela Nale, a member of the Downtown Jefferson City Association board.

Arris' Pizza and Bone's will have booths set up with food, while drinks will be served by High Street Pub, Bar Vino, Bone's, Arris' and Gumbo Bottoms.

"We don't have a lot of venues in Jefferson City to listen to live music, so this gives everyone an opportunity to hear some great music by some of our local artists," Nale said.

The event will run from 7-10 p.m. on High Street. Joining Central Bank as a sponsor is Rusty Drewing.

The event is $5 for those 13 and older and $2 for children ages 4-12. The price includes a wristband and beverage cup for those over 21.

"I think it's just a great time to come out and listen to live music," Nale said.
