Started in 2008, Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch is a free summer outdoor concert series happening at the corner of Liberty and Division in downtown Ann Arbor Thursdays from Noon to 1:30pm. Sonic Lunch features a live band from an impressive array of talent in the region, as well as national and international acts. Each week, lunch will be available on-site for purchase from a local vendor.
Sonic Lunch concerts are free and suitable for all ages. Seating is available but lawn chairs are welcome. Join the crowds for an energizing mid-day break or just relax and enjoy the sounds.
Sonic Lunch is a collaborative effort spearheaded by Bank of Ann Arbor. ann arbor’s 107one and Morning Host Martin Bandyke provide promotional support and host each event. Perich Advertising & Design, a local advertising agency, contributes the annual design of Sonic Lunch posters, banners, t-shirts and stickers. THS Audio provides sound production. As a result, Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch has become one of the coolest summer events in Ann Arbor.
Aug. 30 – Theo Katzman wsg Jacob Sigman
Here we are at the end of the 11th season of Sonic Lunch and it has been an absolute blast hanging out with you on Thursday afternoons at Liberty Plaza for free live concerts this summer, all of them brought to you by Bank of Ann Arbor!
Headlining the 2018 Sonic Lunch finale on Thursday, Aug. 30 will be our dear friend Theo Katzman, the singer/songwriter/guitarist/drummer with deep ties to Ann Arbor.
A little over a decade ago, Katzman was a jazz student at the University of Michigan when he met up with several other like-minded musicians and became part of the acclaimed group My Dear Disco (later re-named Ella Riot). Theo launched his solo career in 2010, with his latest album Heartbreak Hits released in 2017. Theo is also a member of the wildly popular funk group Vulfpeck.
Opening the show at 11:30 a.m. will be Ann Arbor-based Jacob Sigman, another talented singer and multi-instrumentalist whose mix of pop and soul is sweet and satisfying and just perfect for a summer’s day.
See you at the 2018 Sonic Lunch finale on Thursday, August 30th!
