Cruise Music

Somerville's Friday Night Cruise is more than cars.

Each cruise night from 7 to 8 p.m. the Connie Tarentino Summer Concerts present free live music on the County Courthouse steps.

This evening the featured group is Marshall's Dixieland Band. From the Find Somerville website:
"Come enjoy New Orleans Jazz on Friday, August 20th with Marshall's Dixieland Band as Somerville celebrates 29 years of outdoor concerts.

The concerts are held on the Somerset County Courthouse lawn, weather permitting. The concerts are free, bring a blanket or chair.

The 29th Annual Connie Tarantino Concert Series is made possible by the generous sponsorship of PNC Bank, Connie's Music Center, LaFontaine & Budd, Inc., Lloyd's Furniture, Skylands Community Bank and Somerset Savings Bank, with additional support from Alfonso's Family Trattoria."

Here are some photographs of Marshall's Dixieland Band taken during their July 11, 2008Cruise performance:

The specialty car show is the Z-Car Club, with the featured cars parked in front of the County Court House on Main Street.
The final concert of this summer's schedule on Friday, August 27th, is Gordon James playing jazz.
And while you are strolling down Main Street, stop in front of the church and say hello to one of our favorite DJs playing the oldies music that matches the cruise cars:

If you look at all his pictures, you'll notice he is also a cruiser!
