For over 30 years, the Summer Sounds by the Bay has been a Bayonne favorite in the park during the summer, with great music at a great setting. It will return again in 2022, and the Division of Recreation has announced the lineup.

”We are ready for a great summer! We have a great lineup of music and we are looking forward to seeing everyone enjoying the summer nights!” stated Pete Amadeo, Supervisor of Recreation.

The concerts begin promptly at 7 p.m. at the lower level of 16th Street Park at the amphitheater stage.

Six weeks of summer concerts

The concert series will begin with SUPER TRANSAM on July 13. The band will make anyone nostalgic of decades past with their covers of hit classics paying homage to the 1970s.

On July 20, the series continues with the Winslow Eagles Tribute Band. The band celebrates an iconic American band, The Eagles, recreating some of their live performance moments and signature sounds from the ’70s.

The third performance of the series will feature the “Long Live the Beatles” show on July 27, the longest running Beatles show in the country. The all-live musical event features impersonations of the band during 1962 to 1970.

Up next is AM Gold Yacht Rock on August 3, a New York City-based tribute band that performs adult-contemporary hit songs from the late ’70s through the mid ’80s referred to as “Yacht Rock” including: Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Huey Lewis, Christopher Cross, Lionel Richie and more.

The penultimate performance of Summer Sounds by the Bay 2022 includes Lights Out Beach Boys on August 10. The band has been described as a cross of listening to the Beach Boys while watching the smooth moves of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and will perform all of the west coast hits.

Rounding out the concert series on August 17 is Amish Outlaws. The Amish Outlaws will constantly surprise the audience and keep everyone guessing as to what they could possibly play next, from Johnny Cash to Jay Z, Lady Gaga to Luke Bryan, and even to theme songs from the TV shows they have come to know.

August 24 is reserved as a rain date. For more information, contact Amadeo at 201-858-6129 or email bayonnerec@aol.com.
