Carmel bar to host all-ages summer shows
By Jessica Fox
Three Ds’ Pub and Café recently reshaped its music line up.
Long known for its emphasis on classic rock bands, new owner Erin Heller said she’s preparing to launch the restaurant’s new summer music series.
The bands playing will range from bluegrass to alternative rock, and for the first time the shows will be open to all ages. Each concert will feature three different bands for the price of one.
Heller decided to start the summer music series so that it would give kids something to do during their summer break and keep them out of trouble.
Parents can have dinner or cocktails at the restaurant while they wait for their children, Heller said.
The business is able to offer all age shows because the room the shows are played in is a banquet room and is not a part of the bar.
Some of the featured bands will be from the northern Indiana and Chicago areas.
“They are all groups on the verge of getting a record deal,” Heller said.
A few of the bands will include, Hero Jr., Indiana pop punk band Late Night Reading and the Indianapolis pop rock band We are Forever.
Heller has been placing signs up around the high school to help generate interest from younger crowds in Three Ds’ upcoming shows.
All shows in the summer concert series will cost $10.
Due to recent construction along U.S. 31, Heller said the business has been “financially impacted” in a negative way and that it is not getting the same amount of traffic as it once was.
The restaurant is also still planning on incorporating even more country music to their lineup, as was announced in Current in Carmel in October 2013.
