If it's Monday, there must be music
Gresham's popular Music Mondays summer concert series continued this week as Rich Layton & Tough Town jammed out on stage, Monday evening, July 8.
The popular Texas honkytonk band brought a little country, blues and American roots music to downtown, as part of the free concert series that runs weekly at the Gresham Arts Plaza, 401 N.E. Second St.
Those who missed the latest Music Monday act have plenty of upcoming opportunities. The concerts are held Monday evenings, from 6:30-8 p.m. Those who attend are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets, and a picnic to enjoy a summer evening of live music.
