Downtown Sounds sees in weekend with Beatles tribute

August 14, 2013 by  

Throughout July and August, Glen Cove hosts Downtown Sounds, a series of free music concerts that take place every Friday night. This event began in 1997 as Jazz In The Square, a jazz concert event that was hosted by Glen Cove Downtown BID. Since then, it has expanded to include a variety of other musical styles and genres, and is now co-sponsored by BID, the City of Glen Cove, and a variety of local businesses.

This Friday, August 16, Strawberry Fields, a Beatles cover band, will be performing for Downtown Sounds. The group covers the growth of the Beatles, starting with their 1964 pop music, transitioning the psychedelic sounds of the Sergeant Pepper era, and then moving on to the iconic songs from Abbey Road and The White Album. During this musical journey, the group also changes its dress to match.

This year, Downtown Sounds also features a secondary stage that primarily features acoustic artists or children’s entertainment. On Friday, Mariana Iranzi will be performing on this alternative stage.

Promoters and organizers for this event may want to investigate flyer printing companies and other printing companies that can create printed advertising materials. These materials can be used to advertise in towns outside of Glen Cove, like Roslyn or Port Washington, to draw in even greater crowds.

Though the summer performances are almost over, it is not too late to catch the rest of the great performances that will round out the summer. Downtown Sounds begins at 7:30 pm on every Friday up until August 30.
