Thursdays on the Dock: Little Big Band

July 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Little Big Band
Thursday, July 29, 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.

The Little Big Band includes Piano, Bass, Drums, 3 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, 5 Saxophones and a Vocalist, for a total of 15 musicians. Much of their repertoire is swing, dance, and big band jazz, but include a mix of Latin, rhythm ‘n blues, and early rock ‘n roll.

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.
