Seattle band McTuff will be gracing the stage at Downtown Summer Nights tonight for a free concert. They, as well as us, would love to see you down there on 4th street starting at 5:00 p.m. as it's the kick-off party for the first Downtown Summer Nights of the season.

McTuff is comprised of Joe Doria, Andy Coe and Tarik Abouzied and have played as many festivals including Bumbershoot, New Orleans Jazz Fest and several others. They're set to bring some jazz and funk to the streets of downtown Yakima.

We're also excited to have a group of guys who have been called a lot of things, but, as they say, don't try comparing them to any other band as they're not like any other band. They're Cracker Factory and R. L. Heyer, Shane Smith and Denali Williams have something to present that you've never seen or heard before.

Local gal, Nikki J, completes the line-up at Downtown Summer Nights. Her voice has been heard all over the Yakima Valley for many years both performing solo or with her previous band, Powerline, and has participated in several singing competitions in the area. She is a local talent that must be seen to be believed.

We'll see you starting at 5:00 p.m. for Downtown Summer Nights!
