Bryan Bishop is glad his group, The Bishops, will be a return guest to Fishers’ Tuesday night summer concert series.
“We absolutely love the venue and we savor the opportunity to get in front of four or five thousand people who would not normally see us at a bar,” Bishop said. “We are a wedding and corporate event band, so showcasing our show to all ages is key to our business growth.
The summer concert series, presented by IU Health Saxony, begins its 16th consecutive year in Fishers June 5 at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater. The Bishops will play July 10. The concerts are from 7 to 9 p.m.
“It differs in that we change the setlist to include the more family friendly, multi-generational, recognizable songs,” Bishop said. “We love playing to all ages. We will leave some of the harder rock tunes for the late night bar shows.”
A Carmel resident, Bishop will play at the Gazebo Concert Series’ 25th anniversary celebration Aug. 1. Bishop, who is on the Fountain Square Committee that runs the series, has served as emcee of many of the concerts the past few years. The Bishops have played the Summer Concert Series at the Gazebo the past five years.
“We are so honored to be the band to celebrate their 25th anniversary,” he said.
