Multiple Musical Genres Slated for Arboretum

The Dallas Arboretum offers a little something for about every musical taste in the coming weeks.

Tonight, Tuesday, Monte Montgomery takes the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage with his brand of original acoustic rock ‘n’ roll suitable for all ages.

Le Freak cranks the ‘70s disco thing — redundant, yes — Thursday night, July 14. The Arboretum will run a period-dress contest so reach into the deepest recesses of the closet and break out those bellbottoms, baggies, and platform shoes. Seriously, when was the last time you heard “Car Wash,” which was a fine movie as well as a jammin’ song.

After a weekend break, Signed, Sealed, Delivered picks it back up July 19 with plenty of Motown — Stevie Wonder — Top 40, disco, and classic rock.

Key West brings Caribbean rock ‘n’ roll — as opposed to reggae? — to East Dallas July 21 with some cover tunes, “Margaritaville,” “Cheeseburger In Paradise,” “Only The Good Die Young,” and original pieces in “Tropical Girl” and “Mardi Gras.”

You know the drill, right? As with all shows in the Concerts in the Garden series, gates open at 6 p.m. and shows start at 7:30 p.m.

Picnic dinners and coolers are welcome at the shows, and the Arboretum provides ample concessions for people who don’t want to take in their own.

Individual adult tickets cost $9 for Arboretum members and $16 for non-members. Check the website for particulars.
