EASTON — The Clean Water Concert Series will continue Saturday, June 15, with an evening of toe-tapping jazz when the U.S. Navy’s premiere jazz ensemble, the Commodores, performs a free show on Harrison Street.
The Commodores have been performing the best of big band jazz for the nation for over 40 years. The 18-member group originally formed in 1969.
The list of guest artists who have appeared with the Commodores reads like a who’s who of jazz and popular music — Ray Charles, Branford Marsalis, Clark Terry, Grover Washington, Jr., Chris Potter, Jerry Bergonzi, Eddie Daniels, James Moody and many more.
Along with block-party fun, the annual Clean Water Concert Series celebrates the beauty and vitality of the Chesapeake Bay area. The series, made possible by a partnership between the Avalon Foundation and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, offers free live music, dancing in the streets and activities that engage kids in learning about caring for the Chesapeake Bay.
Activities will start at 6 p.m. on Harrison Street followed by live music at 7 p.m. The rain venue is the Avalon Theatre.
