Dino Paspalakis who is with Friends of the Bandshell says, " the beach is free to the public and open and considered a safe environment we are basically the beach plus face masks so we are even safer.”

The normally free event will charge a general admission fee of $2.00 and $10.00 for VIP admission. Those fees will include a chair which will be spaced at least 6 feet apart for the show.

To get the shows started, a Stevie Wonder tribute band, “Hotter than July,” will kick off the concerts Saturday, July 11th, 2020.
