Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation

The Levitt Pavilion here in Dayton is part of a growing family of outdoor Levitt music venues and concert sites across America. This year, through permanent Levitt venues, the Levitt AMP Music Series, the Levitt National Tour and select outreach concerts, nearly 500 free Levitt concerts will be presented in 26 towns and cities. Each celebrates its own community and presents high caliber entertainment featuring a rich array of music genres. As coveted anchors of community life, families, friends, and neighbors of all ages and backgrounds come together on Levitt lawns through the power of free, live music. Leading the program’s nationwide growth is the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a pioneer in the creative placemaking movement. Learn more at www.levitt.org.

The New Old-Fashioned and The Boxcar Suite

Cosmic American power pop for the Age of Aquarius, Boxcar Suite is equal parts paisley, rhinestone and feather boa. The New Old-Fashioned fuses big harmonies, punchy guitars and lyrics firmly rooted in a Midwestern lifestyle, both modern and classic.

Ruthie Foster

The small rural town of Gause, TX, had no chance of keeping the vocal powerhouse known as Ruthie Foster to itself. The worship services at her community church created the foundation of her vocal capabilities, which developed into her own sound, which is unable to be contained within a single genre.
