Summer Nights Series Begins Tomorrow Night
Hubie Ashcraft Trio Starts The Season

Fort Wayne, Indiana (June 1, 2021) – The Embassy is pleased to begin the sixth annual Summer Nights at the Embassy series tomorrow Wednesday, June 2 with the Hubie Ashcraft Trio. Every Wednesday Summer Nights will be open from 5 to 9 p.m., with music starting at 6 p.m. (through September 9). The presenting sponsor for the series are Chuck & Lisa Surack and Sweetwater. Embassy Presents sponsors are The James Foundation and Fort Wayne Metals. Associate sponsors are TriCore Logic and Premier Bank.

Hubie Ashcraft of Fort Wayne is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer. Ashcraft is widely known for playing energetic live shows that include elements of rock, Americana and country, all infused with pop sensibilities, authentic lyrics and soul. In addition to playing electric guitar, Ashcraft also has two years of classical guitar training. He is performing at Summer Nights with musical comrades Missy Burgess and Derek Reeves.

The featured food partner this week will be The Hoppy Gnome. Mad Anthony Brewing returns as the Microbrew Sponsor. A cash bar and concessions are available as well. A favorite feature of this series is access to the Parkview Health Rooftop Patio where patrons can hear the live music and see Fort Wayne’s spectacular skyline, all while enjoying a drink or food. Summer Nights is a rain or shine event. If weather is not favorable for rooftop viewing, patrons can enjoy the full show in the ballroom.
