NORTH CREEK The Music by the River concerts will bring four rockin’ bands to the shore of the Hudson River this summer.
The series, which takes place at Riverside Park in North Creek next to the train station, will kick off July 14 with the Lazy Suns, a New York City-based quintet whose music has been featured on the Discovery Channel‘s reality show the “Deadliest Catch.”
Cosmic Jackson will perform July 28, the Willie Playmore Band takes the stage Aug. 11 and Collette and the Mudcats will close the series Aug. 25.
There will also be a concert in Riverside Park during Columbus Day weekend, but a band has not been booked yet, according to Katie Nightingale, who organizes the Music by the River concert series for the North Creek Business Alliance.
The series is being funded by the Business Alliance and Warren County occupancy tax funds.
“The idea is to feature a mix of music from bands throughout the region,” Nightingale said. “We encourage people to stop at local restaurants and shop before and after the concerts to see all that North Creek has to offer.”
The concerts are free, and the music starts at 6 p.m.
