Heritage Festival Concert
Los Su
gar Kings

Sunday, August 2, 6:30pm
New
ton Center Green, Centre St. & Langley Rd.
Bring a picnic, lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on, sit in the beautiful Newton Center Gardens and enjoy a free concert by Los Sugar Kings - a Boston-based quartet known for their dynamic live performances, rich harmonies, intense musicianship and ability to transcend genres with an authenticity rarely heard. Every show is an intimate dialogue between the band and their audience, with both sides communicating in a manner that is spontaneous, passionate, thoughtful and joyous. Respect is paid to the forefathers and traditions of Afro-Cuban Son, Salsa and Rumba-Flamenca but Los Sugar Kings (named after a Cuban baseball team) also actively draw on influences from nearly every continent in their unique roots-rock-reggae fusion repertoire.  Visit www.newtoncommunitypride.org for more information.

Dancing in the Parks
Jumpin Juba
Wednesday, August 5, 6:30pm
Aub
urndale Library
Bring your family & friends, a picnic, something to sit on, don’t forget your dancing shoes, and enjoy a free concert by Jumpin Juba. Mixing regional blues with Rootsy Rock & Roll, Jazz, Calypso, and Latin flavors,  Jumpin' Juba: Steve Hurl, guitar and vocals; Bruce Ward, piano; Brian Flan, drums. The group mixes regional blues from Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans together with rootsy rock & roll, jazz, calypso, and Latin flavors. Steve's guitar playing draws from the great acoustic blues fingerpickers, and from the roots-y string benders of the 1950s. Bruce's burly piano work recalls such boogie-woogie greats as Prof. Longhair, Otis Spann, and Albert Ammons. Visit www.newtoncommunitypride.org for more information.

Dancing in the Parks
4EverFab
Wednesday, August 12, 6:30pm, Coletti-Magni Park, Nonantum






Bring your family & friends, a picnic, something to sit on, don’t forget your dancing shoes, and enjoy a free concert by New England’s best Beatles Tribute band. 4EverFab, a phenomenally-talented and meticulously-exact Beatles tribute band whose beautiful harmonies and arrangements help get audiences in touch with why they loved the Beatles in the first place. 4EverFab does not wear moptop wigs or dress like the 60s or even sport faux British accents, but if you close your eyes, you'll find yourself in the presence of the original Beatles genius. Featuring brilliant lead vocals, precise three-part harmonies and outstanding musicianship, 4EverFab plays The Beatles' greatest hits. Come join us for this time capsule of classic rock music on the green. Visit www.newtoncommunitypride.org for more information.
