With the fourth season at Alton's Amphitheater just around the corner, Triple Jam Productions will be returning to promote a series of summer concerts this year. The venue is under the direction of the Park & Recreation Department, and Park & Rec Executive Director Brad Cunningham says that is something he would like to see evolve in the future.

Cunningham comments

He says concert promotion is a very specialized craft, and there are plenty of professionals in the area that could potentially step into a role similar to the golf management company arrangement at the Wadlow Municipal Golf Course. The Amphitheater annually hosts a variety of concerts, including the The Big Gig and the Mississippi Earthtones Festival, and a series of Thursday night concerts that included several tribute acts last year, but national touring acts like Head East and Cracker in 2010.
