Free Live Music!
Food Trucks. Beer Garden. Rock and Roll.
Groove inside and out of the Rock Hall. We're featuring talented musicians on our plaza stage and in our beer garden - the best part is, it's free!
Today's live music is in partnership with Make Music Cleveland.
Come out to the Plaza beer garden for a lakefront lunch with live music by local musician Thor Platter.
Cleveland singer-songwriter Thor Platter is a loyal purveyor of Americana music for many reasons. "The tradition and history of American music have influenced me my entire life; it encompasses many sounds and styles from many different eras," he explains. "Above all, it is just good music to your ears."
With his new album Take Time, Platter is setting out to showcase his mastery of the genre, as well as capture the energy, spirit, and infectious harmonies of his live shows. Platter’s gentle, affecting vocals – which have earned him numerous comparisons to Willie Nelson – are carried along freely by the accompaniment of rollicking banjo and harmonica. Fans of the classic ‘70s singer-songwriter genre will delight in Platter’s seamless transitions from toe-tapping jams to sweetly confident ballads throughout the set’s 10 tracks.
Platter has been the featured performer at multiple large local music festivals, and is a seasoned roadman, keeping up a steady schedule of regional gigs while continually working on new music.
If weather is inclement (heavy winds, heavy rain, lightning), this performance will be cancelled. Since this is a free event, no refunds will be offered.
Make Music Cleveland is part of Make Music Day, a global music celebration that takes place on the summer solstice each year and brings people of all ages and skill levels together to make music. Begun in France in 1982, Make Music Day has spread to over 1,000 cities across 120 countries. Completely different from a typical musical festival, Make Music concerts are performed by anyone who wants to take part and enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend.
