Don’t miss the music happening of the year as Lewiston Council on the Arts brings back Lewiston’s own 1960’s rock musicians and friends for the 12th Annual Summer of '69! Join us for a fun filled evening featuring all your favorites from the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s performed by members of Lewiston's own super-groups such as the County Orphanage, the Invaders and the Lewiston All Stars.


Special guest and Grammy winner Gary Baker, former Invader County Orphanage bass player, will perform some of his number one hit songs. Gary has worked with performers the Backstreet Boys, Alabama, Lone Star, All-4-One and has created such hits as I Swear, I'm Already There, and Once Upon a Lifetime. This year Gary will team up with family members and former local band mates to make this a truly unforgettable show.

Ties to Lewiston are so strong that some musicians and audience members come from as far away as Idaho, Alabama, Georgia, Louisianna and Virginia to enjoy the event. So, break out your favorite tie dye T-shirt and join us in the park for a groovy evening of music, family and fun as we take you on a journey to the past. Can you feel the love?


This event is FREE and open to the public thanks to the generous sponsorship of
Sevenson Environmental Services and Modern Corporation.
