Good Living Tour headed to Imperial

Editor’s note: This is the sixth in a series to announce the upcoming Smokin’ on Broadway events.

    For the second year in a row, Imperial is one of the venues for the Good Living Tour produced by Hear Nebraska presented by Nebraska Department of Economic Development.
    The July 1 concert will take place in front of the mural at the city offices with no admission fee. The Smokin’ On Broadway event is sponsored by the Imperial Community Foundation Fund and Chase County Tourism.
    People are encouraged to bring their own chairs and the concert is open to all ages. The concert starts at 7 p.m.
    Hear Nebraska was co-founded by Imperial native Andrew Norman and his wife Angie.
    Hear Nebraska’s project mission, posted on their website, is to:
    Celebrate the unique livelihood available in Greater Nebraska.
    Cultivate an increasingly vibrant, original, contemporary music culture and industry in Greater Nebraska—connecting and growing the state’s urban and rural communities.
    Expose a young audience to new, innovative music and performance through homegrown Nebraska musicians—inspiring them to learn an instrument, host a concert or pursue a career in the arts.
    Educate Nebraskans—and the world—about Greater Nebraska music venues, music-related small businesses and passionate arts supporters.
    The Good Living Tour will stop in eight different Nebraska towns in six weekends featuring at least one band native to the town.
    The Imperial concert will feature Imperial natives Nick and Tyler Talbott and their alternative folk/ rock band The Talbott Brothers; Rothsteen, an R&B/Soul singer; Universe Contest, an Indie-Rock band; and a special guest that will be announced the night of the concert.    
    “Come out, give them a chance. You can get right up front and have an amazing seat. I’m personally proud of being from Imperial, and I’m excited to bring bands to see where I come from,” said Norman.
