Coyote River Band Perform Live on 8/28 in Washington Park — August 26, 2020

The Coyote River Band wraps up our summer concert series this Friday at 6:30 PM in Washington Park. The band will rock the park with their infectious blend of classic rock, country and dance music. The group mixes three-part harmonies with top-notch musicianship to keep fans entertained deep into the night. More than anything these guys (and gal) are really talented and just a whole lot of fun. Come on down and enjoy a great show.

Last week’s concert featured Concerts in the Park newcomers Andre and Friends. They are extremely talented and really know how to bring the party to the park – so much dancing! It also once again showed that we could successfully hold a concert with the safety precautions in place necessary to have a gathering of this sort. Once again we had a selection of food trucks to help feed the masses. This week the trucks will be Supreme Hot Dog, Rolling Tomato Pizza and Robin’s Ice Cream truck.

The City of Groton takes the COVID-19 Pandemic very seriously and will be making accommodations to ensure the safety of all who choose to come to the shows. Due to the outdoor nature of the shows and the vastness of Washington Park attendees should be able to maintain a healthy distance from others, but we will also be making the following precautions:

  • The viewing area in Washington Park will be marked off with 18 foot-sized boxes in which attendees can sit to enjoy the show. Each box will be separated from each other by empty spaces of equal size. (Below is a sample diagram of a general look of set up).
  • Face masks must be worn whenever you are not in your box – meaning walking to and from your vehicle, the restrooms or any other destination.
  • Stay with your cohert. Please arrive with your group and do not intermingle with other groups. This is vital in our efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.

 

As with everything during the health crisis, everything is subject to change. There is nothing more important to us at the City of Groton and Groton Utilities than the health and well-being of our fellow residents, so if it appears that having Concerts in the Park is not safe for all, then we will adjust the schedule again or cancel the 2020 season.

With all that said, here is the Concert Schedule for the 2020 season. We hope to see you there.

  • July 31st – The Usual Lebowskis
