Levitt Amp Galva Music Series Kicks-off on May 28th in Wiley Park


The 5th year of the Levitt Amp Galva Music Series kicks-off Sunday, May 28, 2023, at 6 PM with live performances by The Empty Pockets and 7000apart in Wiley Park, Galva. The Galva Arts Council brings two family-friendly live concerts every Sunday until August 6th from 6 PM to shortly after 8 PM. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating on the lawn. A variety of food vendors will be on-site but guests are welcome to bring in outside food as well. There is a playground and basketball courts near the stage and there are restrooms on-site. The street running through the park will be closed during concerts and those with golf carts/UTVs are asked to keep their vehicles away from the audience to prevent blocking the view of guests and minimize the risk of accident while driving through the park.

Americana quartet The Empty Pockets play a soulful, 70’s-inspired blend of exploratory grooves, shifting time signatures and distinctive vocals. This unassuming Chicago-based indie powerhouse is quietly conquering the Billboard charts, connecting with fans, filling venues across America, and doing it all on their own terms. The Empty Pockets isn’t just a band name, it’s an ethos.

Swedish/American alt-pop duo, 7000apart, combine powerful vocals with strong songwriting and moody melodies to deliver music on an emotional level. Singer, Amelie Eiding and multi-instrumentalist, Jon Kresin have both struggled with their own mental health issues over the years and have found the cathartic nature of radical honesty, self-acceptance, and artistic expression through songwriting therapeutic. Their experiences and time spent healing have fostered a genuine passion for helping others through their music.

The Levitt AMP Galva Music Series is supported by many community sponsors, donors, and volunteers, and the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private foundation that empowers towns and cities across America to transform underused public spaces into thriving destinations through the power of free, live music.
