Not a baseball fan? Join WOWT at the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Plaza for Bridge Beats. Friday night, meteorologist Greg Armbrecht will be on hand to introduce artist Matt Whipkey.
Belles & Whistles, who were originally scheduled to perform, had to cancel their performance because they are competing to play the main stage of the Country Stampede on June 29.
Matt Whipkey, one of Omaha’s popular musicians and singer-songwriters, will play Bridge Beats at 7:30 p.m.
Whipkey is said to be the ultimate stage performer, one that is not satisfied if even one crowd member isn’t “into it,” whether it’s on a tiny lounge stage or at a mammoth amphitheater.
Opening at 6:30 p.m. for Whipkey is Tracy Skretta, a musician that taught himself to play on a Gibson Jazz guitar at the age of 31. He plays covers of The Beatles, Tom Petty, AC/DC, Steve Miller and originals using a soothing, upbeat and unique style.
Bridge Beats will be held every Friday night, with the final one on Friday, June 28. These events are free and open to the public. A food vendor will be on site for guests to grab something to eat.
