Atlantic Grill’s Music-by-the-Sea Celebrates 20 Years!

Our Atlantic Grill Music-by-the-Sea concert series celebrates 20years this season! Come find out why the 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 2 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.

One of the most fun-loving, local party bands is back on July 9; 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.

Drowned Valley and The Joshua Incident take the stage on July 16 for a special concert to benefit the Center’s Marine Mammal Rescue program. Sponsored by the UNH Marine Docents, their infectious fiddle-playing bluegrass/folk rhythms will connect with all ages and lighten the spirit.

Yonder is a quintessential ensemble honing its craft night after night on the road, and the fans are there to experience it in real time; and the result is music that doesn’t stand still, but is always progressing and breaking unprecedented ground.

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Delicate yet fierce in her vocal delivery, she writes often about her social concerns – and it was a trip to a California women’s prison that inspired much of her latest album, We the Common. The album is raw and rollicking, homemade and reckless, 12 songs capturing this utterly unique writer and performer like never before. If you have never seen Thao Nguyen or heard her music, this is the perfect introduction. You’ll thank us later. Pure joy.

Milk Carton Kids

These Grammy Award nominated “Kids” are Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan who, together, have taken off like folk rockets. This flat-picking harmony duo are penned as a minimalist duo – using two guitars and two voices to create their authentic combination of back-porch Americana and classic folk – and, as such, recall the reverently beautiful likes of Simon & Garfunkel.

Hurray for the Riff Raff

If you are looking for the cutting edge of the Americana scene, look no further.
