Summer is officially here, bringing with it long days, sunshine and heat. And what better place is there to beat the heat than by the water?

In Bayonne this summer, residents can enjoy beautiful nights by the bay listening to some of the best sounds of summer as part of the Summer Sounds by the Bay series, held Wednesday evenings starting on July 13th.

The first concert of the summer will feature songs from the 1970s courtesy of the group Super Transam. Look forward to songs by Paul McCartney and Wings, Kiss, Boston, Queen, Hall and Oates and so many more. The following week will bring songs from The Winslow Eagles Tribute Band, and then, on July 27th, Long Live the Beatles, the longest-running Beatles show in the country, will be playing some of the fab four’s biggest hits. As the summer continues, look forward to concerts from AM Gold Yacht Rock, Light Out Beach Boys, and the Amish Outlaws. For a full list of concerts, visit the City of Bayonne online.
