Since opening almost a year ago, Music Box Supper Club
has brought plenty of great acts to town. Now, the newly rechristened restaurant, Rusty Anchor at the Music Box, will host a Summertime on the Riverfront concert series beginning on May 28th and continuing every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. through Labor Day Weekend. The concerts are free, and most bands will perform outside on the riverfront dock. The oyster bar will include fresh oysters, and Great Lakes Brewing Co. will offer special craft beers. The local “swamp pop” band Cats on Holiday will host Thursdays, and Fridays will feature a world music theme and include local jazz, funk and soul acts with accompaniment from local drummer, percussionist and producer DJ Neil Chastain. Local singer-songwriter Chris Hatton hosts a Yacht Rock theme on Saturdays, and Sunday will be devoted to traditional Irish music.
Here’s the schedule:
Thursdays from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.: Roots Rock with Cats on Holiday and others
Fridays from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.: World Beats with DJ Neil Chastain and others
Saturdays from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m.: Yacht Rock with Chris Hatton and others
Sundays from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m.: Trad Irish with Portersharks and others
