The Beatles, Michael Jackson and a Grammy-award winning symphony will fill the hills of Brentwood with music this summer. The world’s best fireworks show will be on display July 4. And a new band that’s a mix of Little Feat and the Eagles with a little Joe Cocker mixed in joins the lineup.

Don’t call CNN or Fox News. The Beatles and Michael are not really being reincarnated for the city’s annual Summer Concert Series that kicks off June 3 this year. But you will want to mark your calendars for the next best things coming to the Eddy Arnold Amphitheater in Crockett Park.
New to the lineup that returns The WannaBeatles, Who’s Bad: Michael Jackson Experience, the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, Little Texas, The Devonshires and the Kadillacs are The Bicho Brothers.
“I think Brentwood’s going to be the perfect audience for us,” says Chuck Nelson, one of the band’s founders. The classic rock cover band formed in 2006 as a sideline for the well-traveled core band members, who have toured and recorded with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Kenny Loggins, Olivia Newton John, Jackson Browne and Dolly Parton.
Linda Lynch, Brentwood’s community relations director, said Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group has signed on as the third series sponsor, joining already announced Brentwood Academy and longtime sponsor Bancorp South.
“The Bischo Brothers were recommended by several people, including a city commissioner,” Lynch said. “I’ve tried to change it up each year, adding new groups, but the problem is, everyone always says, ‘You can’t stop having so-and-so.' You would have thought I was taking somebody’s child away from them.”
The free concerts continue to grow in popularity. Last year every concert was a “sell out” if measured by the lack of open spots in the amphitheater’s natural grass bowl. “You couldn’t ask for a better community event. It’s probably the best one the city does,” Lynch said.
All of the concerts begin at 7 pm, rain or shine.
