At last, summer is here, and that means it’s time to pack up the beach chairs and blankets and head out to Ocean Front Park for the Boogie in the Park Concert Series. Every first and third Sunday from May-October, this scenic, seaside park is the setting for a season full of free concerts, featuring a variety of musicians and genres. Get ready to boogie as while grooving to everything from pop to reggae, and R&B to soul, newgrass to country rock and party rock.
The next show this month is scheduled for June 16, with a stellar performance by Into the Fog. This North Carolina-based newgrass band features members Brian Stephenson on vocals, guitar, and banjo, with Winston Mitchell on vocals, dobro, and mandolin. Vocalist and bassist Derek Lane completes the trio. Concert times are 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Upcoming July shows will feature David Dixon’s blend of pop, rock, and soul on July 7, and South of K will rock the house to a bluegrass beat on July 21.
