BELFAST – Thursday August 12, Belfast Summer Nights brings two groups together at the Steamboat Landing in Belfast.
Smoke and Mojo will open the evening with a fiery rendering of Gypsy Soul Blues. The dynamic duo combine the talents of local boat Dan Miller and Troy Youngblood.
“Expect a lot of fun with these guys,” Summer Nights said in a press release.
Next is the outer space group.
“For those of us older hippies in these areas, this is the group we would happily lead to Sugarloaf, Portland, Portsmouth or even Monroe,” Nights said. “Galactic For over 5 decades, outer space has had a dedicated fan base in Maine and New England.
Rockers, songwriters and musicians, they have shared stages with Dr John, BB King, Waylon and Willy, and Willy Dixon to name a few.
“As concert organizers, we can’t help but worry about the growing number of Covid cases in Waldo County,” Nights said. “And while we know that outboard transmission is extremely rare, we are taking the following steps to address this issue:
“Make the area bigger so people can space out and watch the show. We’re moving the stage to the lookout location and playing the sound so people can enjoy the show all over Steamboat Landing and on the hill from Belfast Commons Park across the street.
“The dance area will be enlarged to promote spacing between the dancers.
“Our Belfast Summer Nights staff will be masked so that everyone feels comfortable if they choose to mask as well.
“There is a lot of space to stretch out and enjoy this great show!”
Additionally, due to the limited number of parking spaces near Steamboat Landing Park, the Waldo County YMCA generously provides free bus service to and from the Y to the show. If you are interested in this service, please park in Y car parks and board the bus at the main entrance. The bus will leave at 5:00 p.m. with additional trips as needed. The return will probably be at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. as needed. In addition, the bus will be available if it rains. Summer Nights will provide a garden cart to help transport your camp chairs to the seating area from the boathouse drop-off location.
Show time is 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Steamboat Landing Park in Belfast. Free entry with hat passage. Donations accepted. Dogs are not allowed in the steamboat landing area but are welcome in the Commons park.
The major sponsor of this evening is from the Grasshopper Shop.
