Sunset Music Series Rising
The beloved Sunset Music Series returns for another go-round.
Wednesday, June 13
What could be better than music and the beach? If it was free, of course. Once again this year, Erieites will be in luck as the beloved Sunset Music Series returns for another go-round. Every Wednesday, for six weeks in June and July, there will be a free concert at Beach 1 of Presque Isle State Park.
Headlining the kickoff show will be the area's favorite Beatles tribute band, Abbey Road. Featuring a lineup of dedicated musicians with decades of experience, they lovingly present all the songs you've come to know and love from the lads from Liverpool. Starting off the show will be Brenna Bone and Seann Clark. The fire-and-ice combination of Bone's sweet vocals against Clark's raspy grit make for wonderful rock results. The following week will feature the soulful, danceable sounds of The Groove, with the classic rock duo of Rankin & Schell opening up the show. From the City of Erie Parks and Recreation portable stage, the crowd is sure to stretch well into the distance. Guests can make themselves comfortable with blankets and beach chairs until the concert concludes near sunset. This year will also feature at least three food trucks on-site each week, with Atacolypse, The Big Cheese, and The Juice Jar food trucks the first week as well as J's Mainstreet and Connie's Ice Cream. Each week will also feature Hula Hoop Playshops with Jennifer Dennehy. As if the beautiful outdoor ambiance of Presque Isle in the summer sun and air of twilight wasn't enough. — Nick Warren
