See you at the Levitt for their final concerts of the summer!

As she looks forward to the final concerts of Summer 2022 at the Levitt Pavilion this Friday and Saturday, Executive Director Letatia Teykl looks back with enthusiasm and pride.

"It's too hard to pick just one favorite moment, so I'll name a few," said Letatia. "We launched our first-ever Asian Heritage and Juneteenth celebrations, and we're already working on plans to host these important cultural events again next year. Our 'Share The Stage' initiative, which makes it possible for the Levitt to book local musicians as opening acts for the Levitt's free concert series, is going strong for a second season. It's been such a thrill to welcome these artists to our stage, especially when 'playing the Levitt' is on their professional bucket list. Another favorite moment was our summer fundraiser concert with Tommy DeCarlo. So many people came up to me afterwards and said they loved the ticketed concert experience."

What's coming up at the Levitt this weekend? Plenty of hot, hot, hot FREE music and several new ways the Levitt will help you stay cool under the Texas night sky. 

Friday, July 15: Rebirth Brass Band with The Big Ass Brass Band

For almost four decades, the Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band has been stunning fans with a fiery live show and a rich musical catalog. Their trademark sound pays homage to the New Orleans brass band tradition, while also weaving a tapestry of jazz, funk, soul, R&B —in other words, all the sounds that the band grew up on. From their legendary 25+ year run of Tuesday nights at the Maple Leaf to stages all over the world, Rebirth is the soundtrack of the Crescent City and her premier musical ambassador.

Opening for the Rebirth Brass Band is The Big Ass Brass Band, a powerhouse collective of Dallas/Fort Worth's finest and funkiest brass players. Offering a raucous and original blend of second-line, funk, hip-hop, and jazz, this band holds nothing back and leaves no booty unshaken.

Saturday, July 16: Lauren Corzine with Josh Weathers

Long-time Fort Worth favorite Josh Weathers will blow you away with his soulful singing and empowering lyrics. For the last 15 years, Josh has perfected his craft of combining songs of hope with a high energy rock n’ soul vibe, earning comparisons to the likes of John Mellencamp, Springsteen, and Stevie Wonder. After watching one of Josh’s live performances, you’re sure to walk away a fan for life! 

Opening for Josh Weathers is Lauren Corzine, a country/Americana singer-songwriter who has played in front of thousands of live music fans around the Lone Star State, scoring multiple Texas Regional Radio Top 100 and Top 50 hits along the way. In 2020, Lauren joined “Reputation - a Taylor Swift Experience,” as Taylor herself. “Being on stage is what I love most," says Lauren when asked about her artistry. "My songs tell a story about life experiences, and I strive to keep the listener entertained from start to finish." Lauren currently performs with two bands and is working on her debut album.

Staying Cool at the Levitt
