Culpeper, VA.Join us in historic downtown Culpeper directly in front of the Depot for the kick-off concert of the 3rd Thursday Summer Concert Series, brought to you by Culpeper Renaissance, Inc., a downtown development organization dedicated to enhancing, celebrating, and enriching Culpeper’s Downtown. Aaron Martinak, 3rd Thursday Summer Concert Series Chairman, is eagerly anticipating the arrival of this year’s Concert Series. “I'm really excited about this year's musical lineup for this year's Third Thursday concert series. We have a great mix of fan favorites and some excellent first-time bands.”

The summer concert series begins on May 19, 2016, with The Worx, an award winning mid Atlantic Southeastern group.  The Worx perform modern and classic rock-n-roll covers as well as original material with such energetic enthusiasm that everyone will be on their feet for this exciting show.  From their amazing head-turning classic rock-n-roll covers (you won't be sure you're not hearing the original artists) to their owncrowd-pleasing hits, The Worx deliver an exciting show. Come to the Depot area ready to dance and sing;you'll see why crowds across Virginia love The Worx. 

The festivities continue on June 16, 2016, with The Fabulous Hubcaps, one of the nation’s most sought after oldies and rock show bands.  Their career has been as diverse and colorful as the bowling shirts they wear.  In 2005, The Hubcaps proudly were inducted into The Southern Legends Entertainment and Performing Arts Hall of Fame.  The Hubcaps continue to captivate audiences with their high energy tributes to original artists like Little Richard, James Brown, Tina Turner, Bobby Darin, Sonny and Cher, The Flamingos, Ray Charles, The Beach Boys, Willie Nelson & Patsy Cline, Elton John and Frank Sinatra just to name a few. With an extensive repertoire of Do-Wop group harmony, Classic Rock and Roll, Rock-A-Billy, Motown, and R & B music, The Fabulous Hubcaps are heralded as one of the best oldies show bands in the country.  This is one concert everyone loves!

July 21st features The Reflex 80s tribute band. Step inside the DeLorean and get ready to go back in time…The Reflex delivers the ultimate musical tribute to the 80’s! The band’s goal is to recreate—some might even say mirror—the sound, vibe, and look of those 80’s mega-bands and one-hit wonders you love. The Reflex offers a full-on retro experience with a diverse set list of “must play” 80’s tunes.  So dust off your parachute pants, Jordache jeans, and Rubik’s Cubes and prepare yourself for the sounds of The Reflex – The Ultimate 80’s Tribute Band! Hairspray is optional!

Join us for our final concert of the summer on August 18, 2016, with the high energy show from En’Novation.  En'Novation is a highly talented Richmond based band made up of extremely well-seasoned singers and musicians that have decades of combined experience.  En’Novation performs hit after hit with stunningly smooth vocals, pitch perfect harmonies, and a high charismatic stage presence.  Grab your dancing shoes; this is one concert Culpeper music lovers should not miss!
