A summer evening in Hamilton is extra special when the Bitterroot Community Band is in concert at the bandshell in Claudia Driscoll Park.

The volunteer band members have several hour-long evening concerts each summer and the first one is Thursday, June 30. Every other week, a different local group will be on the stage. All the concerts start at 8 p.m.

The bandshell is on the north end of Claudia Driscoll Park, which is just east of Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital, next to the Hamilton National Guard Armory.

Bring a lawnchair or blanket and be ready for an eclectic menu of music - from movie themes to march numbers.

Oh, yes. It's free.
