July Concerts & Dancing
The “July Concerts” bring these exceptional artists to the plaza on Wednesdays in July (7pm to 9pm): Andy Suzuki and the Method now on August 9th (rescheduled from July 12th) (Register here), Disco Unlimited (Register here) on July 19th and Dancing Under the Stars with Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra on July 26th (Register here).
- With soulful lyrics, lush sounds and fantastic instrumentals, Andy Suzuki and The Method often sound like more than the three-person band they are. Comprised of half-Japanese, half-Jewish American Andy Suzuki and Nigerian percussionist, Kozza Olatunji-Babumba, the NYC-based group often uses the often uses the personal to address the challenges “hyphenated” Americans face.
- Disco Unlimited has become the hottest disco show and dance band on the East Coast. Capturing a time in music that to this day has not been matched, Disco Unlimited will exhilarate you with their powerful vocals, tight harmonies and dance grooves, and instantly transport you to a time when Saturday nights meant white suits, platform shoes and music that compels you to dance.
- Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra is the world’s premier Jazz-Age dance orchestra, steeped in the hot-dance band tradition of the 1920s and early 1930s. The orchestra’s presence invokes the vibrations of something unmistakably timeless. They capture the essence of what this music and times were all about: joy, romance, modernity, and possibility. Join us for an evening of Dancing Under the Stars accompanied by this wonderful live band. No dance skills needed, come learn the steps with our instructors and dance the night away while enjoying swing melodies.
“Summer Dancing Under the Stars” offers you dance lessons taught by experts in the genre and then dancing! See above for the swing-themed night on July 26th. “Bollywood Extravaganza” is our Summer Finale with a Bollywood dance class taught by a fantastic instructor – and dance performances – on September 5th (new date). (Both begin at 7:00pm).
