June 4: Jesse Dean & Left of Center

Jesse Dean and Left of Center will kick off the 2017 Mountain Street Stage Summer Music series. A powerhouse band from Northwest Arkansas, the trio plays soulful rock 'n' roll with a heavy blues influence. The band will perform original and cover tunes from some of rock's greatest musicians. The band recently competed in the International Blues Music Challenge in Memphis.

Upcoming concerts:

June 11: The Crumbs

The Crumbs is a folk and bluegrass band with strong Arkansas roots. Their 2014 album, "Bring 'em Round," is dedicated to the legacy and heritage of the Marshals who served the Fort Smith courts in the late 19th Century. The music on "Bring 'em Round" hearkens back to the times when iron men played wooden instruments. 

June 18: Claudia Burson/Ben Harris Quartet

This seasoned jazz quartet performs regularly around Northwest Arkansas and the surrouding region playing jazz standards and ballads, popular songs and traditional New Orleans grooves. In 2014, the quartet relased the album "Peace," a collection of holiday-inspired music.

June 25: Opal Agafia & The Sweet Nothings

Opal Agafia and the Sweet Nothings is a five-piece string band performing music from the hills of Arkansas. The band's songs blend the best elements of bluegrass, gospel, blues, jazz, country, swing and traditional mountain music into a sound that simultaneously captures the spirit of the past and boldly looks forward.

July 2: Still on the Hill

Over the past decade, Still on the Hill has been celebrating the Ozark Mountains in an effort to perserve a rich culture that is quickly disappearing. They embellish their songs with a host of unique instruments from the hills they call home. Many of their instruments were hand-made by traditional crafters and carry amazing stories of their own.

July 9: Boss Tweeds

Part rockabilly, part 50s rhythm and blues, and 100 percent rock, these guys are making a name for themselves with their high octane live shows. Channeling the spirit of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Bo Didley and even Arkansas's own wild man Ronnie Hawkins, a Boss Tweeds live show has all the sweat and fervor of a country revival meeting gone nuclear.

July 16: Sky City

From Jonesboro, Arkansas, this cosmic Americana band is hitting its stride with a talented group of musicians able to seamlessly swerve from honky-tonk to rock 'n' roll, from blues to low-down and greasy. In 2014, they released their debut recording, "Nudie Suite Ep," initially conceived as a tip-of-the-hat to the late, great Gram Parsons.

July 23: The Odds

Having performed in the local music scene for many years, The Odds play a mix of originals and eclectic covers and have been described as a cross between Widespread Panic and Steely Dan.

July 30 Arkansauce

Arkansauce is a genre-hopping four-piece string band from Northwest Arkansas that is bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, Americana and country. With a loyal following, the band relies on a hard-driving sound punctuated with improvisational guitar, banjo and mandolin leads, powerful harmonies and heartfelt lyrics.
