Verona’s summer concert series will take over the center of town on Wednesday evenings, beginning July 11. All concerts will be on the lawn in front of Town Hall at 600 Bloomfield Avenue except the last one, which will be at Verona Pool. Here’s this year’s lineup:
July 11, Garden State Radio: This is a sound and light show experience, with music that spans four decades from the 1980s to today. The band says on its website that “They mashup and medley a wide array of songs like a world class DJ, while also combining costumes and theatrics for a one of a kind, electrifying live experience.”
July 18, The B Street Band: The band bills itself as the original Springsteen tribute band. It has delivered 5,500 performances over 34 years, even opening for Bruce outside at the Philadelphia Spectrum. And if you need any Springsteen lyrics to sing along with the band, it has posted them here.
July 25, Rachel Allyn Band: Rachel Allyn is an Americana singer/songwriter who has opened for Kenny Rogers, Brett Eldredge, Sara Evans, Trace Adkins, Lonestar, Travis Tritt, Randy Houser, and Tyler Farr, among others.
August 1, AM Gold: A tribute band that performs adult-contemporary hit songs from the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, including Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Huey Lewis, Christopher Cross, Lionel Richie and more.
August 8, Alotta Colada: This home-grown Verona band will perform at the Verona Pool, which will be open to Verona residents only. Alotta Colada styles itself as an “Island Party Band” that performs everything fro Marley to Buffet, and Jersey Shore classics to Lady Gaga.
