A horn band, Motown group, saxophone quartet and a slew of tribute bands will make stops in Islip this year during the Town's annual Summer Concert Series.
Each concert is free and open to all residents. Attendes are encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets and insect repellent on those warm summer nights.
The series kicks off with Uppercut at East Islip Marina on Tuesday, July 10.
Each concert will begin at 7:30 p.m., except for Quattraphonium, who will begin at 7 p.m.
The complete schedule is listed in the table below, as well as in Islip’s 2012 Summer Directory.
In case of rain, the concerts will usually be rescheduled for the following day. Any decision to move locations indoors will be made after 3 p.m. the day of the performance. Residents can call the Office of Cultural Affairs at 224-5430 with any questions.
