Below is a press release from the Tewksbury Public Library:
TEWKSBURY, MA — Kids can’t have all the fun at the library this summer! The Tewksbury Public is offering more than 100 FREE programs for adults this summer, including outdoor concerts every Monday night.
These concerts will pay tribute to some of the greatest musical acts in history, including:
Elvis Presley: On Monday, July 18 at 6:30pm, enjoy a concert from one of the country’s top Elvis Tribute Artists, Ray Guillemete, Jr. For more than 20 years, Ray has amazed and inspired people with his award-winning “A Ray Of Elvis” show. He is a 10-time international Elvis Tribute Artist winner and has performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Japan. Ray will wow you with his striking look and outstanding vocals. His ultimate tribute to the King of Rock ‘N’ Roll features all of Elvis Presley’s greatest hits, including “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “All Shook Up,” and many more.
The Beatles: On Monday, July 25 at 6:30pm, enjoy a concert from the popular Beatles tribute band, 4EverFab. 4EverFab brings to life timeless Beatles music through brilliant lead vocals, precise three-part harmonies and true-to-the-record musicianship. 4EverFab will play this show “By Request” so that the audience will hear the songs that they want to hear. In addition, 4EverFab engages the audience with stories behind the songs, placing them in musical, cultural and historical context. This show is family-friendly and attracts fans from every generation. All the well-known hits will be featured including “She Loves You,” “Penny Lane” and “Strawberry Fields Forever,” plus sing-alongs like “Yellow Submarine” and “Hey Jude.”
There is no concert on Monday, August 1.
Rod Stewart: On Monday, August 8 at 6:30pm, enjoy a concert from one of the country’s top Rod Stewart tribute performers, Rick Larrimore. Larrimore captures Stewart’s four decades of best-selling hits with the same humor, high energy, and sexy savoir faire that’s made him a Rock ‘n’ Roll icon. From “Maggie May” to the latest “American Songbook” classics, audience members will believe the “Rodfather” is in the house.
Jimmy Buffett: On Monday, August 15 at 6:30pm, enjoy a concert from one of the New England’s top Jimmy Buffett tribute bands, The Island Castaways Band. Originally formed in 2008 as Jimmy Buffett tribute, The Island Castaways Band have evolved into one of New England’s most popular Trop Rock bands. (What is Trop-Rock? Any song that can bring you to your own private island and just sit back with a cold one and relax!) Their live show features a balanced mix of originals and classics, all with their own tropical touch of fun – bringing summer to you, regardless of where you are or the time of year. The band promises a heavy dose of Jimmy Buffett for its Tewksbury concert.
Dave Matthews Band: On Monday, August 22 at 6pm (early start), enjoy a concert from Brett Huntley and Matt Salito of Crush, New England’s premier Dave Matthews Tribute Band. Drawing heavily from the Dave Matthews Band’s “Big 3” albums (i.e., Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash, and Before These Crowded Streets), “Crush” brings the classic 90’s sound of Dave Matthews while including several of their hits from post-2000. Brett and Matt recreate the softs and highs of the acoustic sound of Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds. Blending soft, mellow tones with lively, upbeat sing-alongs, the acoustic duo performs dynamic sets consisting of the most popular Dave Matthews tracks.
Pop & Rock Hits For Boomers To Gen Z: On Monday, August 29 at 6pm (early start), enjoy a concert from The Broken Heels, a Boston-based cover band specializing in modern hits and 60’s to 90’s Rock. The band covers current acts like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Olivia Rodrigo, and Adele, as well as favorites from Gen X and Gen Y childhoods, including Green Day, Blink 182, Alanis Morissette, Spice Girls, and NSYNC. And they certainly won’t ignore the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, with Bruce Springsteen, Queen, Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Madonna and Whitney Houston on the playlist. Be prepared to dance the night away!
