(Denver, Colo.) Live music returns to Riverfront Park on Thursday when artist Adi Oasis headlines the first show of the Summer Sessions lineup.

Joseph Lamar and the Mile High Soul Club will open for Adi Oasis.

Presented by The Riverfront Park Association, the Riverfront Park Summer Sessions are held from 4 to 8 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month from June through August and benefit the Riverfront Park Community Foundation.

“It’s exciting to see activities and energy returning to our downtown neighborhoods,” said Don Cohen, community foundation president. “We expect Summer Sessions will be bigger and better than last year’s very successful inaugural concerts. The temps may be warm, but this is one very cool place to be this summer.”

The remaining Summer Sessions lineup includes:

  • July 21: The Brummies, with opening acts Porlolo and Sophie Gray
  • Aug. 18: Pimps of Joytime with opening acts Los Mocochetes and Kayla Marque

The Riverfront Park Community Foundation works to foster excellence, diversity and opportunity in the downtown Denver community, primarily in the arts. The foundation has a strong voice in Denver’s arts and education communities and celebrates diverse communities in the Riverfront neighborhood and surrounding metro area.

The Summer Sessions occur near the historic 19th Street Bridge, a pedestrian-only bridge spanning the South Platte River adjacent to the Denver Skate Park.

Built in 1888, the 19th Street Bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the oldest surviving wrought-iron bridge, oldest vehicular bridge at its original location and the oldest vehicular bridge still in public use. It is one of only two bridges that survived Denver’s 1965 flood.
