Kids have fun playing checkers on South Ann Arbor Street during a recent Summer Music Series event.

The Summer Music Series – a free, outdoor concert brought to you by Saline Main Street, continues this Thursday, July 26 at 7 pm. This week the series features Pajamas, a favorite in the local jam band scene.

Pajamas is an Ann Arbor, Michigan based trio that creates their own unique blend of improvisational rock and funk music. The exploratory sound is born from a close and cohesive musical relationship. Daniel Schuler establishes an intriguing foundation on the bass guitar with Earth-shattering slap bass lines and delicate harmonics, creating nuanced grooves and rich soundscapes. Nick Orr's guitar playing soars, riding a sustained wave of melodic sensibility while also providing funky, rhythmic energy and color. Graham Low drives the engine on the drum set with a flurry of technical grooves, ready to go off in any direction at a moment’s notice. All three members share vocal responsibilities creating rich harmonies and different lead vocals from song to song.

The band performs a diverse mix of covers and original music, satisfying listeners of any genre bias. Incorporating elements of rock, funk, blues, jazz, hip hop, psychedelia and beyond, every live performance is a distinct and new experience - heavily encouraging and inspired by crowd participation. Pajamas draws influence from bands like Phish, the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Snarky Puppy, Vic Wooten, the Allman Brothers, the Dave Matthews Band and many others.

All Summer Music Series concerts begin at 7:00pm on S. Ann Arbor St. in downtown Saline. The series is free to all guests and highlights a wide variety of cultured musicians.

In addition to the spectacular music, guests can enjoy downtown Saline’s favorite eateries and unique shops. The goal of Summer Music Series is to bring people to our downtown, both from our local community and beyond. Feel free to bring your friends and enjoy a nice summer evening in downtown Saline!
