Concerts in the Plaza: Mississippi Heat

These live outdoor musical performances begin at 7:30 pm every Tuesday evening, from June 18–August 6, at Independence Grove in Libertyville.

Led by harmonica master and songwriter Pierre Lacocque, Mississippi Heat is a world-class Chicago blues band. Their motto is “Traditional Blues with a Unique Sound” as they present fresh yet vintage-based musical ideas. The band’s conviction is there is no deeper music than Delta-inspired blues to express what lies in everyone’s soul.


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.
