Arbortheater Concert - TONIGHT    "Johnny Russler & the Beach Bum Band"

The Arbortheater is located at 50 S. Fairway Drive, just north of the Vernon Hills Athletic Complex (VHAC). Concerts are held on Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m.. In case of rain the concerts will relocate at the Sullivan Center at 635 North Aspen Drive.

Concerts are open to the public and everyone is invited. Bring a blanket, lawn chairs, and picnic basket and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

During the concerts the main parking lot is blocked off for handicap and seniors. Concert parking is in the Rogers Executive Park II parking lot adjacent to the Arbortheater. The Arbortheater can also be accessed on the bike path through Deerpath Park just north of the Castle.
Johnny Russler & the Beach Bum Band: You can call the Beach Bum Band a “Parrothead band,” because the beach, warm weather, and the island themes parallel much of the ambience that Parrotheads enjoy. But the Beach Bum Band is NOT a Jimmy Buffett cover band. The band certainly plays plenty of Buffett favorites, but you’re just as likely to hear music from Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Paul Simon, Dick Dale, Jerry Jeff Walker, and many others.
