Summer Concerts Are Back!

Music Mondays are Back!

Music Mondays will return to Springwood Park for our 5th Season starting Monday, July 13th with a performance by the Asbury Park Concert Band, who will be paying homage to the musical history of Asbury Park! The APCB is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year, and we’re thrilled to have them kick off our annual free, summer concert series. Prior to the start of the show, the Asbury Park City Council will present Conductor John Luckenbill and Local Musicians Union President Dorian Parreott and the band with a proclamation in honor of their 75-year history of bringing music to the boardwalk in Asbury Park. Local favorite, Ms G and Da Guyz will be opening. The show begins at 6 pm and parking is free around the park. Don’t forget to bring your beach chairs and dancing shoes!

Social distancing is mandatory, and, per the governor’s recent mandate, masks are required outside when social distancing is not possible. These are the current policies put in place by NJ. We will also limit the number of attendees to align with state mandates, limit entrances to track the numbers, have hand sanitizer available, and ambassadors will be on-site to enforce social distancing.

We’ll also be livestreaming our shows…check our website for more information.

Can’t wait to see you in the park!Music Mondays
