A sectioned-off field inside Dwyer Memorial Park served as a makeshift parking lot Saturday night, filled in by spectators anxious to hear their first live music in months at the area’s first-ever “Concert in a Car,” hosted by the Center for the Arts of Homer.

The event featured three regionally favorite groups: Charley Orlando, Los Blancos and Digger Jones.

Ticket sales were limited to 150 vehicles and nearly sold out. Official numbers from Saturday haven’t been confirmed.

WXHC aired and streamed the concert live on 101.5FM, WXHC.com and the free X101 mobile app.

Center officials also gave a special thanks to show sponsors Experience Cortland and Dave & Sue Yaman, as well as:

  • Annual sponsors: The Summit Federal Credit Union
  • Annual Media Sponsor: The Cortland Standard
  • Season sponsor: Chinatowne Furniture and Mattress
  • Additional support: Guthrie Cortland Medical Center

“This wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Eric Mulvihill and The Cortland County Legislature for giving us a chance to try this unique concept out! Thank you Everyone for following distancing guidelines, and for keeping the park clean,” said Center officials in a post on Facebook. “We really needed a night like this! ❤️ To us, this exemplifies being ‘In It Together!'”
