The second annual “End of Summer Jam” will be on Sunday, Sept. 15 at the band shell at Sunset Park in Port Washington’s lower Main Street, right next to the Town Dock.
Live music will take place between 3-7 p.m. Walk to the concert or take advantage of free parking at the Town Dock parking lot right next door.
This concert is a free event. Donations are accepted which will benefit life-changing autism initiatives at Port Washington-based, Spectrum Designs Foundation and Nicholas Center, both located on lower Main Street. A special GoFundMe campaign has been set up for donations: https://www.gofundme.com/f/end-of-summer-jam-2. Donations over $50 receive a commemorative event t-shirt.
Student bands with Bach 2 Rock, including Nicholas Center bands-Star Gators and Dreamers, are scheduled to perform.
The featured band will be The Dave Diamond Band. Dave Diamond’s career in music spans more than twenty years. A prolific singer/songwriter and session musician, Dave has recorded and performed as a solo artist and with his own band as well as with an array of other talented and acclaimed musicians. Diamond’s mature and finely crafted blend of rootsy Americana with a little funk and classic singer-songwriter rock resonates for both the casual listener and those who have a more discerning palette.
Spectrum Designs and Nicholas Center help individuals with autism lead full and productive lives through the world of work and in the community. For more information about these important groups, log onto www.spectrumenterprises.org and www.nicholascenterusa.org.
