BlackRock Center’s Free Summer Concert Series Set to Return to Germantown
BlackRock Center for the Arts’ annual free summer concert series returns to the BlackRock outdoor stage Saturdays from July 1 to July 29, starting with the U.S. Navy Band: The Commodores on Saturday, July 1.
The summer’s concert series will kick-off with a performance from U.S. Navy Band: The Commodores. The Navy’s premier jazz ensemble, the “Commodores,” presents the finest in America’s truly original music. Their performances are high-energy affairs that not only pay tribute to the legendary big bands of yesterday, but also feature original compositions by members of the group.
The remainder of the free summer concert series includes performances by the Blues and American roots band The Nighthawks, the first and only all-women Mariachi group Mariachi Flor de la Toloache, the Rock n’ Roll sound of Get Off My Lawn, and classic rock and pop from the US Navy Cruisers.
Should inclement weather occur, all performances will move indoors to the BlackRock Main Stage. Tickets to the summer concerts at BlackRock are free of charge, and no reservations are required. Audiences are encouraged to check the BlackRock website, Facebook Page, and Twitter feed for the most up-to-date performance information. More information can be found at blackrockcenter.org.
