It’s hard to believe the summer is over, but we sure did have a blast this season. We hope you did too! Relive the final concert of this year’s Sonic Lunch with our photo gallery below, and be sure to stay tuned right here as well as on Facebook and Twitter for more fun wrap-up videos, photos, swag and the latest Sonic Lunch news. Thanks for another fantastic year!
We’ll be wrapping up our final Sonic Lunch of the season tomorrow, and you’d better believe we’ll be doing it up right with a giant party in Liberty Plaza! George Bedard and The Kingpins will be providing their super-fun and singable classic rock, and Ann Arbor’s family-owned Pizza House will be on-site selling an assortment of piping hot single slices for $3, or two for $5.
We’ll also have Sweetwaters selling coffee, tea and other cold beverages, and Washtenaw Dairy selling scoops of ice cream. This is your last chance to get in on the Sonic Lunch action. Come on down and bid a fond farewell to Season 6 of Ann Arbor’s favorite summertime concert series!
All good things must come to an end, including the sixth season of Sonic Lunch! To close things out this Thursday at Liberty Plaza will be George Bedard and the Kingpins, making their long-awaited Sonic Lunch debut.
Guitar wizard George Bedard has been a staple on the Michigan music circuit for well over three decades, playing rock, jazz, blues and rockabilly with equal dexterity and style. George began his career in the 70s when he formed the Silvertones with guitarist/harp player Steve Nardella, then went solo after spending time in the 80s as part of Tracy Lee & the Leonards.
Bedard’s latest album is called “Further On,” an ambitious exploration of acoustic blues, New Orleans jazz, swing, jump blues and vintage rock ‘n’ roll. It’s high time for Ann Arbor townie Bedard to play Sonic Lunch, so come and celebrate the season finale at noon this Thursday at Sonic Lunch, brought to you by the Bank of Ann Arbor.

It’s that time of year again… time to say farewell to Ann Arbor’s 6th year of Sonic Lunch (*sniff sniff*), and boy was it a doozy! From 1,800 screaming teenagers waiting outside the Michigan Theater in the rain at 5am to an 8 1/2 month pregnant Erin from the Ragbirds still rocking just as hard as ever, it’s been a very special summer and we’ve had a blast!
Helping us take things out in style is Ann Arbor’s favorite rockabilly dance band, George Bedard & The Kingpins. Come join us this Thursday for your last chance to get down in the summer sun!
