The Latin Essence Group is playing at Washington Park this Friday as part of the City of Groton’s Concerts in the Park live music series.
The Latin Essence Group is new to Washington Park but certainly not new the local music scene. These guys know how to get a crowd going with their own brand of music, specializing in Latin Rock, Old School R&B, Oldies and Funk. Come down to the park and check them out – it’s going to be a great time.
The Friday Night summer concert series is held at Washington Park, Meridian Street in Groton. All concerts start at 6:30 p.m. and are co-sponsored and co-produced by Groton Utilities and the City of Groton Parks and Recreation Department.
Food Trucks: Uncle D’s Blazin’ BBQ, Supreme Hot Dogs and Robin’s Ice Cream.
