Thursday nights in Rockwall are extra special this summer as the city presents its annual series of Concerts by the Lake. Held at The Harbor between 7 and 9 p.m. each week from May through July, the concerts feature a wide assortment of musical artists. Performing next in the series on May 23 is Taylor Swift tribute act RED.

RED is fronted by Lauren Corzine from McAllen, Texas, who performs an authentic recreation of a live Taylor Swift show. The four-piece national touring act comes complete with backup dancers and performs hits ranging from “22” to “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” to “Cardigan.”

Rockwall is the “Free Live Music Capital of North Texas.” Through the years, the city has hosted more than 200 different bands at Concerts by the Lake.

The free concerts take place on the Amphitheater Stage at The Harbor, 2059 Summer Lee Drive, on the shores of beautiful Lake Ray Hubbard. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets, picnics and beverages. Restaurants at The Harbor provide a variety of food choices. Food can be brought in or delivered. Concerts take place unless there is rain or severe weather at showtime; however, the start of a show can be delayed if it appears rain will stop soon.

One of the best things about Concerts by the Lake is that you can experience the shows from land or from water: Scores of boats will fill the Rockwall Harbor enjoying the sounds of the summer concerts.
