Chicagoland's premier Top 40 country band, the Hillbilly Rockstarz, will perform at the Village of Orland Park's Centennial Park West on Sunday, September 2 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Located in the Collette Highlands Subdivision, Centennial Park West is located at Park Station Boulevard and Somer Glen Lane, near 159th Street and 108th Avenue.

"We've had a great response to the free concerts that the village has hosted at Centennial Park West," said Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin, one of the sponsors of the concert. "The City Lights Orchestra performed during our July 4th festivities both this year and last and we're looking forward to hosting a country and western concert during the Labor Day Weekend," the mayor said.

Hillbilly Rockstarz was named Chicagoland's premier top 40 country band by the country radio station US 99.5. The band has been entertaining fans in the Midwest for years with musical selections that range from contemporary hits to older classics and rock tunes. Their Orland Park debut will include hits by Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, Billy Currington, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Big & Rich, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Gretchen Wilson.

"We invite everyone to bring their picnics, blankets, lawn chairs and snacks to Centennial Park West," said Trustee Pat Gira, chair of the village's Recreation and Parks Committee. "It promises to be a great evening of outstanding country music," she said. Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant will have beverages available for purchase at the concert.

Along with Mayor McLaughlin, this Village of Orland Park event is also sponsored by the Aileen S. Andrew Foundation, Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant and the Orland Park Prairie Newspaper. For more information, call the Village of Orland Park Recreation Department at 708/403-PARK.
