It's "Summertime Hits" tonight and Friday night, July 24 and 25, at the D&W Fresh Market Picnic Pops with the Grand Rapids Symphony!

Veteran pops arranger/conductor Matt Catingub returns for a concert of hot, summer-inspired songs -- "Wipeout," "Under the Boardwalk," "California Girls" and more. From Nat King Cole to Katy Perry, you'll hear some of the best of what summer has to offer.

Coming along with Catingub are singer Anita Hall, always a Picnic Pops favorite, and his drummer of many years, Steve Moretti.

Matt joined me on my "Andy in the Morning" show and talked about the concerts.

The Picnic Pops is at Cannonsburg Ski Area on Cannonsburg Road. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m.

There are food and drink available, but the great thing about Picnic Pops is that you can pack your own picnic, bring your own drinks put on comfortable clothes, grab lawn chairs and blankets and head to Cannonsburg Ski Area for great music in the great outdoors.
