The High Falls Business Association has once again teamed up with the Hochstein School of Music & Dance and WXXI to present Hochstein at High Falls, a noontime summer concert series. The series includes ten outdoor concerts Thursday afternoons at 12:10 pm during June, July and August. Weather permitting, they will be held in the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge and will feature a diverse mix of musical artists and instructors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a great lunch at area restaurants (like La Luna and Fina's Cafe). Each performance runs approximately 50 minutes.

The Bureau Cats Blues Band has been on the prowl for more than five years, playing many festivals, community events, and fundraisers. Formed out of a collaboration between City employees and 19th Ward members, the Cats simply love to cut through the red tape and be part of a good time. The band’s musical influences are diverse with a preference towards get-down beats, creative licks, and familiar tunes from the blues and R&B genres. The band features Diane Watkins, lead vocals; Eric Logan, keyboards/vocals; John DeMott, bass; David Singleton, drums; John Nutter, guitar; and Rick Rynski, guitar.
