Assistant to the Village Manager Christopher Oakley said he thinks the summer concert series helps unite the Carol Stream community.

"Just as a staff person, I think these concert series have been just wonderful opportunities to kind of bring people from ... different neighborhoods together in one particular location," Oakley said.

Bands scheduled to perform this season include One of These Nights (an Eagles tribute band), Tumbling Dice (a Rolling Stones tribute band), Mellencougar, R-Gang (Motown. Soul), 7th Heaven, The Hat Guys, Without U2 (a U2 tribute band), 5 Guys Named Moe and Boat Drunks (a Jimmy Buffet tribute band).

For the first time this year, the Rotary Club of Carol Stream will sell beer and Mike's Hard Lemonade from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on concert nights. Proceeds from the sales will go toward the club's community service projects, according to Robert McNees, co-chairman of the committee in charge of the concert series.
