BANGOR Summer is here, which means that the concerts are coming to the Bangor waterfront.

BANGOR - There are thousands of country music fans in Maine and over 8,000 of them attended the Lady Antebellum concert at the Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor on Saturday night. Every one of them who could, stood to their feet the moment the country trio walked onto the stage, and they remained standing until the group's very last note. The trio, comprised of vocalists Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley along with guitar/mandolin player Dave Hayward, opened with their 2013 single "Compass" from their album 'Golden.' The song is a mix of country, blue grass and folk music all rolled into one upbeat toe-tapping number driven by the sounds of the mandolin.

"The best way to stay warm is to dance," Kelley told the crowd before the trio launched into the song "Our Kind of Love" followed by "Just a Kiss," from their 2011 album 'Own the Night.' Next, Lady Antebellum transported the crowd back in time to their first radio single, "Love Don't Live Here," during which Kelley and Scott pointed their microphones to the crowd to let them belt out the lyrics to finish the number.

True believers in this country night

Rucker and company bring complete package to Waterfront

BANGOR - Darling's Waterfront Pavilion officially welcomed Summer to Bangor on June 21 with Darius Rucker's 'True Believers Tour.' It was a full-moon night of country music and Southern sentiment that featured Rodney Atkins and Jana Kramer along with Rucker.  

Opening the show with 'Sass and Class,' Kramer is rocking country with a straight-up message for men: smarten up. Stopping short of the typical trailer trash antics of many female country performers, Kramer's brass tacks are solid, entertaining, and smartly executed. Included in the set list were hit singles 'Whiskey' and 'I Hope it Rains.'

A new venue. A new start

Bangor's Waterfront Concert Series begins its fourth season

BANGOR It's a gray Thursday night as people fill into the new home of Bangor's Waterfront Concert Series. Nestled into a tighter spot aside the hill along Main Street a mere hundred yards from its former spot where it stood for three years, the new Darling's Waterfront Pavilion looms large over rows of well-organized chairs that are more reminiscent of the interior of the Collins Center for the Arts than an outdoor amphitheater. Soon, rock bands Hinder and Motely Crue will be treating fans to their first sounds of heavy guitar and teeth-chattering bass in a venue that took both collaboration and patience to achieve, and for many will be home to many more concerts in the years to come.

Fusion Awards Extravaganza

BANGOR Fusion Bangor has revived its annual awards event and will take to the Bangor Waterfront on Nov. 15 in what organizers are calling the Fusion Awards Extravaganza.

The day of the event will see a temporary addition to the waterfront: a large tent, popping with different colors and bursting with music from the 1980s. This will be an awards ceremony and social event like no other in the Bangor Region.

All things '80s

Iconic legends rock Bangor Waterfront

BANGOR  As the old Journey song says, "the party's over." As the leaves begin to fall, the Waterfront stage is heading to the ground - but not before Bangor rocked with Journey, Pat Benatar and Loverboy on Friday night.

Loverboy, famous for the early '80s staples "The Kid is Hot Tonight" and "Lovin' Every Minute of It," started the evening. The band's lead vocalist, Mike Reno, can still knock out the vocals. They wrapped up with "Working for the Weekend," a suitable choice indeed for a crowd happily standing in a cold drizzle.
