Another great concert in Marine Park last week! The five-day oppressive heat wave broke, and music lovers enjoyed a beautiful evening listening to the retro sounds of Plastic Soul, the third concert in the popular Marine Park Summer Concert Series, sponsored by Assemblywoman Jaime Williams.
The five-member band played everyone’s favorite 60s and 70s Classic Rock songs, by popular artists like The Beatles, Jimmy Buffett and The Doors.
Favorites included Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville,” The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” and “I’ve Just Seen a Face,” Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl,” The Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues,” The Drifters’ “Under the Boardwalk,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop,” Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Bad Moon Rising,” Billy Joel’s “You May be Right” and the Romantics “What I Like About You.”
Before the show began, everyone was treated to a tap dance performance by the Millennium Active Adults. Once Plastic Soul took the stage, the Marine Park Line Dancers were out there “cutting up the rug” as others danced freestyle to their favorite 60s and 70s tunes.
In addition to Assemblywoman Williams, the Marine Park concerts are sponsored in partnership with Kings Plaza, Nick’s Lobster House, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein, Councilwoman Mercedes Narcisse, District Manager Sue Ann Partnow, District Leader Frank Seddio, Millennium Development, NYC Parks, Marine Park Alliance and Marine Park Community Association.
The next concert will be held on Wednesday, August 10th, where Decades will perform Rock N’ Roll tunes. Rain date is August 11th. All concerts start at 7 p.m. and are located on the lawn near the Bocce Court. Bring a blanket, chair, family and friends – and your dancing shoes!
