R&B, funk, and soul music legends Tavares, the Fab Four stylings of Beatlejuice, a dance night with Stardust, and the classic sounds of Charlie Thomas’ Drifters will entertain music fans of all ages as the Dorothy Curran Wednesday Night Concert Series returns to City Hall Plaza from July 16 through August 20.
Now celebrating 42 years as Boston’s longest-running outdoor concert series, these performances bring four summer nights of great entertainment to this unique venue located in the heart of the city. All shows begin at 7 p.m.
The series is presented by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the Mayor’s Office of Arts, Tourism, and Special Events, and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with title sponsor Bank of America. Additional support is provided by media sponsor the Boston Herald and night sponsor Michael Francis Cahill Fund/City of Boston.
The series kicks off July 16 with New Bedford’s own Tavares, one of the most memorable soul groups of the 70s and 80s. Many of their instantly recognizable international hits, such as “Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel” and “More Than A Woman,” have become classics.
On July 23 the series will welcome Beatlejuice, New England’s preeminent tribute to the Beatles, for a night of some of the most memorable rock and roll ever recorded. On August 6 City Hall Plaza favorite Stardust returns for the Decades of Dance Party feature dance floor hits from the 1960s through today.
The series closes August 20 with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Charlie Thomas performing such Drifters classics as “Dance With Me,” “This Magic Moment,” “Some Kind of Wonderful,” “Under The Boardwalk,” and more.
