The Hollis Brown Band Performs a Free Concert
On August 17 at 7PM, on Lanza Field in Harbor Island Park, the Hollis Brown Band, In the Aftermath Tour, will perform with special guest Bruce T. Carroll, part of Concerts in the Park, sponsored by Con Edison’s Arts Al Fresco Series, the Emelin Theatre, the Village of Mamaroneck Council of the Arts and the Village of Mamaroneck Parks and Recreation Department. The rain date is August 18 at 7pm.
The Hollis Brown Band, an honest American rock band, took its name from the Bob Dylan song, “Ballad of Hollis Brown,” a moniker which neatly epitomizes the group’s commitment to melding a signature Americana blend with fine songcraft. The first set is a tribute to the Rolling Stones’ seminal first album of all originals, 1966’s Aftermath, covering such hits as “Mother’s Little Helper,” “Out of Time,” and “Under My Thumb.” A second set of the band’s original songs will follow. The Westchester-based country pop singer-songwriter Bruce T. Carroll will perform between sets.
Last summer, the Emelin took to the outdoor stage at Harbor Island Park to present two free concerts in collaboration with the Village of Mamaroneck Arts Council. It was a great way to reconnect and engage with the community as the theatre re-emerged from its eighteen-month closure due to the COVID pandemic. Over 1,200 people gathered on Lanza Field overlooking the Long Island Sound, to meet with friends and neighbors, picnic and listen to live music. This summer, Concerts in The Park returns with free concerts for all to enjoy.
The Village of Mamaroneck Council of the Arts is made up of nine volunteer members who serve for three years and one board of trustee member. Its mission is to engage the community in the creative arts experience; to highlight the value and importance of art in our lives, to nurture and celebrate local artists through support and presentation of the visual, performing, and literary arts.
The Emelin Theatre was founded in 1972, an intimate 267 seat non-profit venue that presents world-class performing arts to Westchester County and beyond.
