events3Island Rec’s FREE Summer Concert Series at the San Juan Historical Museum on 405 Price St. every Wednesday night at 6:30 from July 5th to August 9th.

July 5Army Brass Band and Army Rock Band – Look out, we’ve got a battle of the bands here.

July 12: Tapwater – This band hails from Portland and is a boisterous sextet with lots of vocal harmonies and drums. This is a very dance able and strangely exotic band.

July 19: Blues on Tap – Acclaimed Blues band from Seattle. Be prepared to boogie in your seat or on the lawn.

July 26: Uncle Funk and the Dope 6 – This upbeat Funk & Rock band from Port Townsend will jump start the deadest of batteries. Imagine Stevie Wonder, Little Feat, Prince, Los Lobos, Elton John, and whatever fun band you’ve ever heard and mash it up.

August 2: JBots – Our local rock band knows its music and impresses all comers. Pop Rock & Roll at its best.

August 9: Uncle Otto – Another local band, this time a dynamic acoustic band with svelte harmonies singing the hits of the 70’s. Think CSN&Y, The Band, Dan Hicks, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. A little bit of Blues, Country, Rock & Roll, and Reggae.
