Updated


The city of Friendswood’s free annual Concert in the Park series starts May 3, carrying on a tradition since the early 1970s in which city residents gather to enjoy live music every Friday night in May and June in Stevenson Park.

Scheduled for 7 p.m. May 3 in the park gazebo is a jazz show by the Friendswood High School Band. Other shows, all free and running from 7-9 p.m. at the park, 1100 S. Friendswood Drive, will feature blues singer and former “The Voice” contestant Sarah Grace, Posse, The Slags and tribute bands. The events are managed by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.


May 10 will feature a show by Grace, a teenager from Houston who plays venues throughout the area including Main Street Crossing in Tomball and McGonigel’s Mucky Duck in Houston.


May 17 brings the band Posse, a band that specializes in a variety of music including country, and The Slags will perform pop, rock and dance music on May 24.

Parks Director James Toney reminded residents to bring blankets or chairs and bug spray. Residents are welcome to bring their own coolers with drinks and snacks, he said, but glass containers are not allowed in the park. Food vendors accepting cash will also be at each event.

Said Toney of the series: “It gives the citizens a reason to visit Stevenson Park and enjoy an evening of music and family fun.”

Prizes will be given out during intermission. Those wishing to be a sponsor or provide a door prize for shows may call Toney at 281-996-3220.

Parking can be found at Stevenson Park, City Hall and the city pool parking lot.
