USCG Jazz Nonet Band
Thursday, July 15, 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 United States Coast Guard Jazz Band was organized in 1970 to perform classic jazz, blues, and rags with a “New Orleans” flavor. The Dixieland Jazz Band has entertained audiences across America, in the former Soviet Union, England, Japan, and Taiwan. Notable venues include Preservation Hall in New Orleans, Times Square in New York City, the Blue Note Club in Taipei (Taiwan), the Embarcadero in San Francisco, the John F. Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington, D.C., and Mardi Gras in New Orleans. The Band appeared at prestigious Traditional Jazz Festivals in Sacramento, California; Sun Valley, Idaho; and Washington, DC. The six-member group has also performed on numerous radio and television broadcasts across the nation, including CBS News This Morning and Fox and Friends.

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.
