Albany-- Some Albany entertainment enthusiasts say downtown's ampitheatre has been quiet too long. They plan to set the summer and the river to music.

Planetary Productions, Cumulus Broadcasting and the Civic Center teamed up to present "Rhythms By the River." It's a four-part concert series at Veteran's Park Ampitheater downtown.

The concerts will be diverse with rock, blues, jazz, country and more. Planners say the series is the perfect summer entertainment to bring traffic and business downtown.

"A very fun place to come to have a concert. One of the best kept secrets in Albany I think and one of the most unused venues that we want to put some stuff out here for the people to come and enjoy," says Bo Henry.

The first concert will be after the Wildcats game next Saturday when Ancient Harmony will hit the stage. Gates open at 8 p.m and tickets are $10.
