Summer Nights in local groove

Aug 11, 2017
Vicki Andres & Life Itself

Belfast — The Belfast Summer Nights free outdoor concert series continues Thursday, Aug. 17, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Steamboat Landing. on the waterfront.

Local band People of the Earth features Kristen Burkholder, Jeff Weinberger, Alan Boyer, Jason Dean and Mike Whitehead. Their intent is clear: make music to dance and groove to, so come prepared to move.

Vicky Andres & Life Itself is another Midcoast power source, as Andres mixes funky, single note lines and chord progressions that flow with a songwriting sensibility that hooks the listener and never lets go. Her intricate guitar work on both acoustic and electric is a driving force, complemented by 11-string bass master Max McFarland and multi-talented drummer Jason Dean, playing double duty this night. The trio delivers edgy, energetic and positive tunes, fitting somewhere among alternative, rock and funk.

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring lawn seating, picnic suppers and the kids, but leave the dogs at home.  For more information, call 322-7123 or the series’ Facebook page. Set for Aug. 24 are Anna Pillsbury; and Tuba Skinny, on Beaver Street.
