After taking a hiatus during the warmer summer months, Fort Walton Beach’s popular Concerts at the Landing series returns tonight and continues throughout September at the park in downtown Fort Walton Beach.

“We’re partnering with Dan Collins Entertainment and he has a great track record,” said Jeff Peters, who oversees Fort Walton Beach Parks as the city’s director of recreation and cultural services. “Every group he brings has a new twist.”

Indeed, the concert series kicks off today with Summer 97, an energetic pop/punk band from Nashville, Tennessee. Summer 97 fuses a variety of musical genres from alternative and rock to pop and country, bringing a kinetic, infectious energy that you can’t help but dance to.
