Golden Hosts 2013 Summer Concert Series


Get ready for a summer of free music courtesy of State Senator Marty Golden and the West Brooklyn Parks Task Force. Throughout July and August, a series of free concerts featuring diverse music will be put on in Marine Park and Gravesend.

In a press release, Golden invited Brooklyn residents to enjoy the shows all summer long.

“This summer, I am proud to host another great line up of concerts and invite music lovers and neighbors to be a part of these great evenings of music. It’s time to grab a beach chair, or a blanket, and head to our local parks on most Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, Golden said in the release. “The music of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, dance, classic rock, and more will be sure to get you dancing under the stars. Frankie Marra, Carl Thomas, Brooklyn Keys, City Sounds  and more acts will make our local park alive with the music that we have come to enjoy and love.”
