Thursdays on the Dock: Eight to the Bar

August 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Eight to the Bar
Thursday, August 5, 2021
5:30-7:30 pm

In order to maintain best social distance practices, we will continue to limit the number attending our Thursdays on the Dock performances. The number allowed on the lawn is dictated by CT State regulations. Contact information (name and phone number/email) will be taken as you enter our property. Thank you for your understanding.

Thursdays on the Dock has been a shoreline staple since 2009. 12 years in and we are still the destination for waterfront music. Each Thursday evening in July and August from 5:30-7:30, bring a chair or blanket, and watch the sun go down over the river.

Our presenting sponsor, Prive Swiss Wellness is always on hand offering massages (as COVID allows) and giveaways.

Drawing its musical influences from American roots music — swing, boogie-woogie, and Motown, Eight to the Bar is known for its outstanding instrumentalists and sophisticated musical and vocal arrangements, highlighted by female vocals.

With the support of independently produced CDs and videos, Eight to the Bar has cultivated a large, enthusiastic following that has put them in clubs from Maine to Miami as well as Europe and the Caribbean. Their rigorous touring schedule has included opening spots for Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Manhattan Transfer, Robert Cray, the late Roy Orbison and Ray Charles, several European tours, and most recently, a tour of the Republic of Georgia at the invitation of the U.S. Embassy located there.

In case of inclement weather, please check our site. All updates will be shown there.

We pass a hat!
These events are free, although we do pass a hat to enable us to continue the tradition.

Cash bar. Please no BYOB.
Beer and wine are available for purchase. An onsite vendor has options for dinner or snacks.

Want to get out on the water?
Take a sunset cruise aboard the Onrust. Departing from Steamboat Dock, the cruise is a great way to experience New England’s Great River. Bring a picnic supper.

While you are on property, photographs may be taken for promotional purposes.
