This year's lineup includes:
July 8: The Willamette Valley Concert Band: This 50 piece community band has opened the Monday’s at Monteith concert series since its inception. What better way to start the series than with rousing marches and Broadway show tunes. Dr Richard Sorenson will direct the band and help you tap your toes to a great start to the summer!
July 15: 234th Army Band: This military band represents a rich tradition of musical history that dates back to before World War II.

July 22: J.T. and The Tourists: J.T. & the Tourists give an energetic and enthusiastic performance, with near perfect replication of the greatest oldie hits. The tourists will make you want to get up out of your seat and dance. These veteran rockers have opened for and played with the big names and they are excited to bring some good time rock ‘n roll to the Monteith stage.
July 29: Halie Loren: Depending on the song, Loren can be sweet, sly, or sultry, but she always finds a way to make you not only hear the music but feel it as well. Loren's ability to find something new in the old, makes this a fun ride. Familiar standards, new music and originals from Halie and her fellow musicians will thrill those who attend.
August 5: The Cheeseburgers: The Cheeseburgers are a tribute to Jimmy Buffett and his laid back island philosophy. They've performed their originals and Buffet favorites all over the Northwest and have opened twice for Buffett at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. When the Cheeseburgers play, the world is a happier place!
