If you like great music, then make Monterrey your destination. Monterrey band will be on stage Tuesday, August 23, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Woodland Park, 2100 Willowcreek Rd. in Portage. Part of the great Portage Summer Music Series of free concerts, the concert will take place indoors in Woodland Park’s Oakwood Grand Hall, and the show is open to the public, with seating provided.

Performing over the years at all major local venues, the popular Monterrey band has opened for top rock acts, including Styx, Ted Nugent, REO Speedwagon, and Fuse– later to become Cheap Trick.  David Alamillo, one of Monterrey’s founding members, is lead guitarist and main musical arranger; brother Joe Alamillo plays bass; and James Uram is the drummer and percussionist. “What sets Monterrey apart is the diversity of music we perform,” says David Alamillo, explaining the band’s appeal.  “The years of experience have led our band through multiple musical genres: 60s, English Invasion, Motown, Heavy Metal, Disco, Latin, and Alternative– to name a few.”

In addition to a great summer concert, food and refreshments by Von’s Catering and a cash bar are on the premises, and there’s plenty of room for the whole family to show off their dance moves.

And don’t forget to also mark your calendar for the final free summer concert for the 2016 year. The Portage Summer 2016 Music Series presents “Diamond and Elvis” on Tuesday, August 30 – a tribute to Neil Diamond and Elvis.  The show will also take place at Woodland Park, 2100 Willowcreek Road in Portage, Tuesday evening, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., in the Oakwood Grand Hall.

Donations of non-perishable food, personal items, and paper products for the Portage Food Pantry and Gabriel’s Horn Women’s Homeless Shelter are welcomed for collection at every concert, but are not required.

The Portage Summer Music Series is produced in collaboration with Portage Township Live Entertainment Association (PTLEA), a not-for profit (c) (3) organization; the Portage Chamber of Commerce; and the Portage Department of Parks and Recreation.  The concert series is made possible by generous grants from The John W.
