I am not a big jazz fan, but I LOVE attending the free Wednesday night concerts on the banks of the Hudson River, and I bet you will too.
Concerts are held every Wednesday from June 15th through August 17th from 6:30pm to 8pm at the Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park. Come with a blanket or chairs, and bring your dinner and beverages with you. Sitting on a blanket near the beautiful Hudson river, watching boats going up and down the river with the sun sinking in the sky, and listening to live music in the open air is an awesome experience. So if you prefer soft rock, blues, acoustic guitar and pop music (as I do), it doesn’t matter!!! If you attend a free jazz concert at the Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park, you will not be sorry!
And if you see me, stop by and say hi!
