Music lovers have several options Sunday with concerts planned throughout the day

Area residents have a multitude of options when it comes to getting out and about this weekend.
Music lovers may be especially excited about all the options this Sunday, from two country concerts planned at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park to a party in the park at Soldiers Park.
Country recording artists, Halfway to Hazard, will perform two concerts at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park on Sunday at 3 and 7 p.m.
According to information from the CMT website, “Halfway to Hazard is made up of Chad Warrix and David Tolliver, who were raised about 50 miles apart in an area near Hazard, Ky.
“After their own bands dissolved, they started performing together in Nashville clubs and attracted label attention, eventually signing with Mercury Nashville. Tim McGraw and Byron Gallimore co-produced their first album, which will be released in August 2007.”
DelGrosso’s Amusement Park is excited to welcome the duo to the stage this weekend.
Admission to the concert and parking are free to the public.
Individuals are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and settle in for an exciting afternoon and evening of entertainment.
Reservoir Park will also host a free musical concert when Silver Creek takes the stage for the opening of the 23rd season of free concerts in the park.
A popular area country band, Silver Creek, plays upbeat, popular country music from today’s hottest hits to those classics that everybody loves.
The evening’s show will include favorites such as “Heaven,  Heartaches and the Power of Love”, “Redneck Woman” and “Gun Powder and Lead”, along with classic country from Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggart.
Silver Creek also plays original songs written by Mark Johnson, the guitarist and songwriter for South West.
Band members are Mark Johnson – Lead Guitar, George Isett- Rhythm Guitar, Monica Brindle- Mandolin and Dave O’Connell on Bass.
Summer Sunday concerts begin at 6 p.m. in Tyrone’s Reservoir Park and, in the event of rain, will be held in the Lutheran Church on Logan Avenue and Thirteenth Street.
