The City of Lewisville will welcome four bands next month as part of its “Rocktober” concert series in Wayne Ferguson Plaza, 150 W. Church Street. The concerts will take place Tuesdays from 6:30-8 p.m.

Hard Night’s Day, a Beatles tribute band, will kick off the concert series on Tuesday, Oct. 10. This Dallas-based band has been performing for more than 20 years. During that time, the bend has traveled to England on several occasions and had the honor of performing at the legendary Cave Club. They also have recorded some of their material at Abbey Road Studios.

Celtic rock band Rathmore Band will perform on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Since forming in early 2017, this fast-rising band has gained a large following through their contemporary take on traditional Celtic tunes. They combine time-honored music tradition with their original take on the genre.

The Intenders, a Pretenders tribute band, will perform on Tuesday, Oct. 24. Front woman Molly Fine, as Chrissie Hynde, has surrounded herself with music-industry veterans to bring the crowd an awesome evening of The Pretenders music.

Tuesday, Oct. 31 will feature a special “Halloween Bash” event. Final details on the musical act that night will be released at a later date.

The Rocktober concert series is an initiative of the “Old Town” Big Move of the Lewisville 2025 vision plan. It’s part of a larger effort to continue to develop Old Town Lewisville as a resident gathering site and a visitor destination.

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for their comfort during the concert. Glass bottles are strongly discouraged in Wayne Ferguson Plaza. Smoking/vaping is prohibited in all areas of the plaza. Attendees also are reminded there is no swimming or playing in the flowing water feature that runs along the north side of the Plaza. Well-behaved pets on a leash are welcome; owners are expected to clean up after their animals, and plastic bag dispensers are available on site.

Wayne Ferguson Plaza is a 1.5-acre urban park that takes on a contemporary sweeping gesture using water to link east to west and unite Lewisville City Hall and MCL Grand. It features an elevated stage, a multi-level seating area, an interactive splash pad and a garden filled with swathes of native grasses and wildflowers. The plaza has received three national awards for urban design.
