The Think Bank Down by the Riverside free outdoor concert series takes place over six Sundays in July and August (July 14 through August 18) in one of the most beautiful green spaces in the area, Mayo Park (behind the Mayo Civic Center and Rochester Art Center). This is an open-to-the-public City park, so lawn chairs, blankets, and coolers are welcome. On-site concessions are also available.
It has become a Rochester tradition, that on Sunday nights in the summer, many of the citizens of Rochester and surrounding communities put the finishing touches on their weekend by gathering together in the friendly confines of Mayo Park; to laugh, dance, sing, relax, play, eat, drink, socialize with friends and family, meet new friends, soak in those steamy Minnesota summer nights; all to a soundtrack of "live" music featuring local, national and international artists from a broad range of genres and eras.
This summer will mark the 28th year the City's Music Department (Riverside Concerts) has produced the popular outdoor concert series. This year's series will run July 14 through August 18; Sunday nights at 7:00 PM in Mayo Park.
We would like to thank Think Mutual Bank, the title sponsor of the Think Bank Down by the Riverside FREE outdoor concert series. Without community minded businesses like Think Mutual Bank, we would be unable to produce a concert series of this magnitude, and would certainly not be able to offer it to the public for free. Thank you, Think!
And a special thank you to the City of Rochester, the Rochester City Council, and YOU...the citizens of Southeastern Minnesota.
Opener: Stanton West

The Rochester Posse will sponsor Roots Music Night - Sunday, July 21 (Week #2) at 7PM in Mayo Park, featuring MIKE LOVE w/ Stanton West at the Think Bank Down by the Riverside FREE Outdoor Concert Series in Rochester, MN.
With a foundation rooted in the spirituality and message-based music of Reggae and Rastafari, Hawaii-based artist MIKE LOVE blends the sounds of progressive and classic rock, pop, R & B, soul, blues, flamenco, jazz and so much more. Healing is at the core of his music. Fans often leave live performances remarking about how they have just been to church, or had a bad day turned around.
Stanton West songs are rootsy, feel-good, and groove driven. His songs are about hope, having fun, being who you are, and relishing the moment.
