Northborough Free Summer Concerts

July 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Northborough – The Northborough Community Affairs Committee is thrilled to announce the return of our free Summer Concert Series for 2022! The 5 concerts will take place at Ellsworth-McAfee Park (Rt. 135) in Northborough from 5-7pm on Thursdays and Sundays. Food trucks will be back again this year along with some fun activities for children! These concerts are lots of fun for all ages! Here is the summer line-up:

Cold Chocolate – Sunday, July 24th, 5-7pm

Cold Chocolate is a genre- bending Americana band that fuses folk, funk and bluegrass to create a unique sound all their own. Punctuated by tight harmonies and skillful musicianship, Cold Chocolate has quickly gained recognition for their original music and high-energy shows.

The food vendors will include Northborough House of Pizza, Easy Street Tacos, Uhlman’s Ice Cream and Yummy Mummy Bakery.

Way Up South- Thursday, August 11th, 5-7pm Way Up South has been tearing up the New England club and festival scene and rapidly gaining a reputation as an explosive live band with a deep well of compelling original music and stellar musicianship. Their expansive sound incorporates a maturity and musicianship that weaves in and out of southern, blues, country, jazz, and Americana rock – music whose precision and finesse still retain the loose spacey qualities and epitomize improvisational rock bands. This style has earned them the right to call their music “Big Sky” sound. The food vendors will include Northborough House of Pizza, Dogfather, Uhlman’s Ice Cream and Yummy Mummy Bakery.

Playing Dead – Sunday, August 21st, 5-7pm

Playing Dead is a Grateful Dead tribute band featuring former members of Dark Star Orchestra, Slipknot!, and Uncle John’s Band. Their marathon sets feature music and jams from the entire Grateful Dead catalog. Playing Dead faithfully recreates the experience of a live Grateful Dead concert. The music of The Grateful Dead is a complex stew of different styles of music including rock, blues, jazz, folk, bluegrass and more. Their improvisational style and large repertoire guaranteed that every musical performance would be unique. Every Playing Dead show is equally unique featuring different set lists each night and exciting improvisational jams.

The food vendors will include Sabor Latino, Dogfather, Easy Street Tacos, Uhlman’s Ice Cream and Yummy Mummy Bakery.
