Music at the Marina begins June 28Free summer music series is a great way to spend a summer night
The City of Everett Music at the Marina free summer series starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 28. The series runs through Aug. 30.
Kicking off the series is “Locust Street Taxi,” a 5th generation ska, pop and swing band with infectious on-stage exuberance. The group’s live performances are full of well-crafted, memorable songs.
The momentum continues into Saturday night with “Hey Marseilles” taking over the stage at 6:30 p.m. with orchestral folk. “A youthful earnestness, a genuine, unsullied passion for song, shines through every last second of Hey Marseilles’ music,” states the Seattle Weekly.
Sunday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m., join others at the waterfront for “St. Paul de Vence,” a vocal-driven folk band that gets its inspiration from a small town in France where the band leader’s grandfather was stationed during World War II.
Songs capture the trials and triumphs of fighting the war and later immigrating to America. The Sunday series typically features more folk, harmonic and solo performances that add a harmonious backdrop to the Waterfront Farmer’s Market located nearby only on Sundays.
And the bands audiences ask for over and over return later this season including: The Lucas Cates Band, Dusty 45s, Clinton Fearon, The Randy Oxford Band, Latin Expression, Reilly & Maloney, and Everyday Jones along with local talent: 20 Riverside, WIRED!, Massy Ferguson, R.X. Bertoldi, and Joachim Nordensson.
Music at the Marina takes place at 1700 W. Marine View Dr., 6:30 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, 2-4 p.m. Sundays.
