RYE —The Seacoast Science Center’s Atlantic Grill Music by the Sea concert series is heralded as a family-favorite summer event. The unparalleled seaside setting of Odiorne Point State Park, great music, giant dance floor, and delicious picnic-style dining cannot be beat—and it’s all for a great cause. All proceeds from the event support the non-profit’s mission for inspire conservation of our Blue Planet.
One of the most fun-loving, local party bands is back on July 11: Jumbo Circus Peanuts. The big bands’ swinging-pop-jazz, crazy costumes, and tossed-into-the-crowd beaded necklaces make for a fantastic evening of family fun.
On July 18, Seacoast legends Truffle, Rhythm Method, and the Tim Theriault Band will take the stage. Groove the night away to a mixture of rock, rhythm and blues, and funk.
The Midtown Horns are set to perform on July 25. This high-energy band runs the gamut of genres, from classic rock, to Motown, to contemporary. With a little something for everyone, The Midtown Horns are guaranteed to get you moving.
August 1 brings the premier U2 tribute band, Joshua Tree, back to the stage. Joshua Tree awes the crowd with their remarkable reproduction of the world’s most popular rock band.
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.
Concert-goers can also enjoy the Center and its exhibits, free with concert admission. Alcohol may not be brought into the park (adult beverages available for purchase) and dogs are not allowed.
The Center asks that you help make this a Zero Waste event and pack your picnic in reusable or compostable containers and use refillable water bottles. A filtered water refill station will be available thanks to Sustainable Seacoast and compostable items will be collected for high-heat composting.
