Noon Tunes Summer Concert Series presented by 101.9 KINK & Hilton Portland Downtown

July 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

John Thayer and Friends will be performing at Noon Tunes over the lunch hour! Singer/songwriter John Thayer is a seasoned artist in the Indie Pop scene. Thayer’s sound has evolved. His debut album “Letting Go” (2000) and “Ideology” (2007) evoke pop rock sensibilities, letting the guitar take center stage. “Laurel Street” (2013) had Thayer really coming into his new signature sound, incorporating more strings and synthesizers and pivoting into Indie Pop territory. “Take It Back” (2015) continued that legacy for a more eclectic sound. “Face to Face” (2016) was more in your face. Recently Thayer has been releasing upbeat singles — such as “You Can Lean On Me” (2017), “Don’t Ask Me Why” (2018), “Do You Believe In Me” (2021), and “Carry Me Through” (2022) — to much play on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.

The Noon Tunes Summer Concert Series returns for its 32nd year and expands to Tuesdays and Thursdays June 4 – July 30! From Noon-1:00pm enjoy music from some of Portland’s best regional and local musical talent. With 16 FREE concerts, dancing, painting at Art in The Park and some of Portland’s favorite food vendors at Carts on the Square, The Square is sure to be Downtown’s summer lunchtime destination.
