RYE —The Seacoast Science Center’s Music-by-the-Sea outdoor concert series brings some of New England’s favorite bands to the seacoast this summer.
The series kicks off on Thursday evening, July 11 with the premier U2 tribute band, Joshua Tree. Joshua Tree awes the crowd with their remarkable reproduction of the world’s most popular rock band.
Entrain takes the stage on July 18. Be sure to arrive early: Entrain has proven to be a favorite of Music-by-the-Sea fans and has brought sell-out crowds. The band is praised for their ability to shift effortlessly between musical styles from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk - all based around drums and an infectious rhythm.
On July 25, Even Steven will mix it up with the great classics of the 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond. One of the most fun-loving, foot-stomping, local party bands will close the series on August 1; Jumbo Circus Peanuts. The big bands’ swinging-pop-jazz, crazy costumes and tossed-into-the-crowd beaded necklaces keep the crowd on their feet all evening.
Located on the rocky shore of Odiorne Point State Park, you cannot beat the Seacoast Science Center’s ocean view and relaxed atmosphere. In addition, you’ll feel great knowing that all proceeds from the event support the non-profit’s ocean education efforts.
Concerts are held under a festive tent on the lawn of the Center, rain or shine. Bring a beach blanket or chair, pack a picnic, or purchase freshly grilled dinner and beverages on site. Alcohol and dogs may not be brought into the park; adult beverages available for purchase.
