Rhythm on the Riverfront Begins Aug. 8

Summertime concerts return to Scenic Hudson’s Long Dock Park along the Hudson River with the Rhythm on the Riverfront Concert Series featuring musical sounds spanning the spectrum, presented by Local 845 in collaboration with Scenic Hudson.

The series boasts pianist and vocalist Bill Malchow and the Go-Cup All Stars from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 8, as Malchow brings a lively New Orleans blues and jazz vibe to the riverfront. Rhythm on the Riverfront continues Aug. 15 with Tin Pan. Tin Pan connotes a world from the past, the most dominant and enlightened strains of American music of the early part of the 20th century – jazz, blues and American popular song. But it would be a mistake to say that Tin Pan is fixed in that past. Rather, it is music that is created to be enjoyed profoundly and joyously in the present.

The band has created a rabid following by playing music that resonates powerfully because its intention is pure, to make people dance, smile and conjure with the spirit of music itself. On their new album, Hound’s Tooth, the band has perfected their sonic vision – effortless, wondrous and festive, feeling much like, as the band members describes themselves, Ray Charles and Tom Waits at a Bourbon Street Parade.

Long Dock Park is located on Long Dock Road, Beacon. For more information, contact Scenic Hudson Parks Event and Volunteer Coordinator Anthony Coneski at 845-473-4440 x273.
