These live outdoor musical performances begin at 7:30 pm every Tuesday evening, from June 18–August 6, at Independence Grove in Libertyville.
Always a favorite at Independence Grove concerts, Rico’s hypnotic blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms is heavily influenced by the sound and spirit of Santana. The band creates a fiery soulful sound through bass, congas, percussion, drums, timbales, keyboards and guitar, all played with pure passion.
Concerts are held at the preserve's outdoor amphitheater, Millennia Plaza, overlooking a 115-acre lake. Bring chairs and blankets. Arrive early to secure your spot; cars are turned away when parking is full. There is an entrance fee of $10 after 5 pm on event nights (drop-offs included). No rain dates. Café open until 9 pm. To make your concert outing even more memorable, call 847-968-3499 to reserve a pontoon boat for your group of up to eight.
