It’s that time again to enjoy your favorite summer tradition. For four nights, jam out to live music at Garden City Center starting Wednesday, July 21. Each pre-show begins at 5 p.m., with showtime starting at 6:30 p.m. 

All Garden City Center Summer Concerts are free to attend, and general admission seating is located south of the Gazebo. Throughout the concert series, make sure to view the Audi Warwick line-up; there’s nothing like looking at cool cars on summer nights. 

If you’re looking for a VIP concert experience instead, purchase a VIP ticket for $15 and receive select seating in the Gazebo parking lot, along with complimentary appetizers, non-alcoholic beverages and a special gift from Garden City Center. Funds will benefit the Rhode Island Food Banks. 

Start off the evening with a high-energy dance party for Funk Night featuring XS Band, who will perform disco, soul, funk and much more. Make sure to swing by the glow park pre-show beforehand to get the ultimate experience. 

On July 28, enjoy a Tropical Night as you listen to the Copacetics, with a beach day-approved playlist full of ska, rocksteady and reggae mixed with some blues, doo wop, soul and jazz. Also check out the hula dancing performances and tutorials, no plane ticket necessary.

Spend the night on the boardwalk on August 4, where visitors can get competitive with midway games and indulge in fun food, as well as watch the dueling piano show with tributes to two legends of music — Elton John and Billy Joel. 

Finishing off the event on August 11 is an 80’s Night featuring Fast Times. Grab some hairspray and neon clothes for a night full of your favorite jams, a vintage games pre-show and more.
