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: Sleeping Jesus

89.3 The Current (88.7 in Rochester) will sponsor Indie Night - Sunday, August 11 (Week #5) at 7PM in Mayo Park, featuring CLOUD CULT with Winona-based artist Sleeping Jesus at the Think Bank Down by the RiversideFREE Outdoor Concert Series in Rochester, MN.
Since 1995, CLOUD CULT has crafted sprawling, cathartic albums, winning the attention of the New York Times, MTV, Spin, Billboard and a devoted following of fans. During that time, the band grew from the solo project of singer/songwriter Craig Minowa to include the rock band along with violin, cello, trumpet, trombone, and French horn. They've sold over 100,00 albums out of Craig’s organic hobby farm.
Sleeping Jesus - "A gorgeous dose of indie-rock comparable to bands like Brooklyn's Woods and Chicago's Whitney. Recently named one of First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2016" - The Star Tribune (Mike madden)
