On Tuesday, July 8, the Mayor’s Summer Concert Series began with a rousing performance from Keep It Real Band, a local rock & roll band that has been active in the Boston area for over 20 years. Many residents of Malden enjoyed the great music and fine weather on the City Hall Plaza as the band played an exciting set of covers ranging from classics to today’s hits. The following week, rain forced the concerts inside to the senior center, where The Reminisants took the stage (click here for a clip). Despite the change in venue, the concert went on, and nothing could prevent the band from delivering their engaging set of oldies covers with the energy and emotion that the crowd loved.
The Tuesday, July 22 concert featured Edgar and Friends Rock and Roll, who brought a set of danceable hits from the 50s and 60s to the City Hall Plaza. Sponsored by Wynn Resorts, the Summer Concert Series runs Tuesday nights from 6-8 p.m. at City Hall on the Plaza. –Len Tetta
