Barnett Reservoir Foundation announces
Sunset Concert Series

Good tunes, great sunset views and spicy shellfish are coming together at Lakeshore Park this spring, courtesy of a new neighborhood music series announced this week by the Barnett Reservoir Foundation.

The Sunset Concert Series, sponsored by The Crawfish King of Flowood, will debut on March 23 with the reservoir community’s own Jay Herrington on stage. The show is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., on the park’s main point on the east side of the lake.

“It is the ideal place to view the gorgeous sunsets that The Rez is known for,” said series coordinator Jeff Roberts of the Foundation, a private non-profit organization that supports the Barnett Reservoir Community. “We think this is an ideal way to give our residents more of a neighborhood or community feel, and of course a new way for visitors to enjoy the lake.”

The Crawfish King plans to sell boiled crawfish and shrimp at each of the events. The Foundation will sell beer, soft drinks and water.

Concerts will be held every other Thursday night:

March 23: Jay Herrington.
April 6: Sid Thompson of DoubleShot.
April 20: Amanda Joullian and John Chappell of Traveling Jane.
May 4: Chris Gill.
May 18: Barry Leach and Andrew Pates.
June 1: Lisa Mills.

Updates will be posted throughout the series on the Foundation’s website at barnettreservoirfoundation.org.

Admission is $5 per vehicle, with no charge for vehicles with “Rez Tags,” and $1 for walk-ins or bicycles. No outside coolers will be allowed.

“We are also offering a $20 Patron Sponsorship for those interested in showing support for the Foundation and for the series,” Roberts said. “Their families will be admitted free.”

No outside food or drinks will be allowed in to the park for the Concert Series, and guests are urged to bring chairs or blankets to the events.

I wonder what the sound will be like from the water.

Probably not as good as on land as the artist will furnish their own sound gear. The stage will be positioned at an angle though so it will depend on where you are on the water

You can purchase the patron pass at the gate the day of the event or you can purchase them at the Rez Office.
