Community night concert offered

TIPP CITY — The Community Night Summer Concert Series welcomes Southbound on Friday, Sept. 6 for an evening of fun and music on North 2nd at Main streets. Since forming in 2013 in Greene County, Southbound has treated audiences to memorable performances featuring enduring songs by some of the greatest bands in history, and also produced and released an all original album, Hands Of Time in 2015.

The band’s resume of more than 120 shows includes stops at Great American Ballpark, Fraze Pavillion’s Kickin’ Chicken Wing Fest, and more.

The tradition continues at this edition of Tipp Community Night with a special twist. For those that favor a softer listening experience, Southbound kicks-off the evening with an “unplugged” set beginning at 6:15 p.m., with hits from yesteryear that highlight the band’s five accomplished vocalists. Following a short break, it’s more Southbound in full electric glory, playing a wide variety of Southern and classic tock favorites through 10 p.m.

Learn more about Southbound at the band’s media sites at or

The Community Night Concerts are a hometown tradition and are held on the first Friday of the month June through September. It is recommended that you bring a lawn chair. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be canceled.
