Arts Jubilee Summer Concert Series features a tribute to the Beach Boys


Entering its 34th season, Arts Jubilee is staging a 5-week summer concert series which runs weekly on Thursday nights from July 14th through August 11th, hosted at Cranmore Mountain, North Conway. Performances this season will pay tribute to many famous groups, including the music of the Beach Boys (July 14) and the music of Simon & Garfunkel (July 21). Music of the 60s will be highlighted on July 28, with Roots, Rock & Soul taking the stage on Aug. 4. The series will culminate with the traditional Pops Concert including fireworks on August 11th.

This Thursday, the Beach Boys tribute will be presented by The Beach Bums, a Canadian-based band whose sole purpose is to bring back those memorable Beach Boy sounds. During the summer of ’98 six artists grabbed their instruments and talent to put together “The Ultimate tribute to The Beach Boys” and named themselves ‘The Beach Bums’. The goal of the show is to recreate the magic and essence of the 60s on the California beaches. The “Beach Party”, the cars, the sun, the endless summer . . . This is what The Beach Boys music is all about. Arts Jubilee kicks off the summer series with music made popular over 5 decades ago – creating fond memories of beach parties, surfin’, and endless summer!

Headliners take the stage at 7 PM but the audience is encouraged to come early and enjoy a picnic supper while listening to the music of local musicians who contribute their time and talent for the love of entertaining. Kicking off the Season’s early concerts at 6 PM will be the dedicated musicians of the Mt Washington Valley Band under the baton of Russell Gage.

The series continues on July 21st when Arts Jubilee hosts “Old Friends” as they Remember Simon & Garfunkel’s 1981 concert in Central Park – one of the largest and most beloved concerts of all time.

Arts Jubilee’s outdoor festival concerts are found at the base of the North Slope at Cranmore Mountain in North Conway, New Hampshire.
