About the Atlantic Grill Music by the Sea Concert Series 2016

Our Atlantic Grill Music by the Sea concert series is heralded as a family-favorite summer event, complete with great music, unparalleled seaside dancing, and delicious picnic-style dining, all for a great cause.

The season kicks off on Thursday evening, July 7 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.

Be sure to arrive early on July 14 when Entrain rocks the shore. Entrain has proven to be a favorite of our concert fans and has brought sell-out crowds. The band is praised for its 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.

One of the most fun-loving, local party bands is back on July 21; 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.

Beatles for Sale joins the series for the first time on July 28 and is sure to be crowd-pleaser! The 2015 Limelight Music Award’s Tribute Band of the Year will have the whole family singing along and dancing the night away to your favorite Beatles tunes.

Concerts are held under our 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 enjoy the Center and its exhibits, free with concert admission. Alcohol and dogs may not be brought into the park; adult beverages available for purchase.

The music begins at 6:00 p.m.; gates open at 5:00 p.m. for dining. Tickets are required and are $12 for adults and $2 for children ages 3-12; under 3 are free. Tickets are available at the Center, at the gate or online. Tickets are good for any one of the five concerts in the series.
