They’re fun! They’re nostalgic! They’re free!
North Wildwood’s Concerts under the Stars 2012 will feature some of the best acts around this summer.
Lou Booth Amphitheater, Second and Ocean avenues, just steps away from the beach and not far below the star-studded summer sky is the perfect place to sing along or dance in the street.
Don’t worry, you’ll remember the words, and maybe they’ll bring back fond memories of simpler times.
Check the line-up below and mark your calendars so you don’t miss your favorites!
All concerts start at 8 p.m.
Jimmy & the Parrots Thursday Aug. 2
Grab your beach chair, your suntan oil, and your favorite drink, and get ready for a trip to the islands with the ultimate tribute to Jimmy Buffett. For more than five years, Jimmy and the Parrots have been playing to delighted crowds.
In addition, they have been a featured band for the last several Meeting of the Minds Parrot Head conventions in Key West, Fla. Their Key West performances also included well-known venues such as Rick’s Cafe, Sloppy Joe’s, Pat Croce’s Rum Barrel, Schooner Wharf and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville.
One of the most requested Jimmy Buffett cover bands in the country, Jimmy and the Parrots perform all the great Buffett songs, but they also play new and classic rock ‘n roll, as well as outstanding original songs written by lead singer/guitarist Jimmy Maraventano. Their cover songs include favorites by the Beach Boys, Paul Simon, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Bob Marley.
The Marvelettes Saturday Aug. 4
The Marvelettes created a harmonic sound that transcended the prior racial limits of rhythm and blues. From their first record, “Please, Mr. Postman” hitting the top spot on the charts and selling 3 million records in a crossover market, the Marvelettes have been offering an act that features their big hits, interspersed with their versions of some great standards in the smooth Motown vein.
