Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District is excited to announce the Sounds of Summer Concert Series is returning to Battle Point Park Observatory Hill. Sounds of Summer Concert Series happens Wednesdays, from July 6th through August 31st, 6 to 8 p.m. Admission is free and all ages are welcome. Plus, there will be activities for the kids and food vendors will be on site.
On August 24th, Nearly Dan will begin their performance at 6 p.m. The demands of the music of Steely Dan are high, both in technical proficiency and in preserving the sarcastic, knowing attitude originally conceived. Nearly Dan does well on both fronts, fusing together the chops of 12 diversely-talented artists (with backgrounds in jazz, rock, R&B, country, and swing) into a veritable butcher’s shop window of precisely cut bass lines; surgical, highly reminiscent guitar solos; a biting yet sophisticated horn section and richly marbled beats.
