Seaside Summer Concert Series celebrates first year at Ford Amphitheater

Don’t miss out on the live music of Brooklyn this summer with the Seaside Summer and Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series!

For the first time, the Seaside Summer Concert Series is based at the new Ford Amphitheater on the Coney Island Boardwalk, 3052 West 21st Street.

“We’re so thrilled to be finally having a permanent home in the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island boardwalk,” said Debra Garcia, executive producer of the two concert series. “After all these years, we finally have a home and are no longer moving from place to place. We also don’t have to worry about the weather because it is completely covered.

“All of our performers will be for families and people of all generations,” added Garcia. “The Seaside Summer Concert Series will also be down by the beach, which will be a nice, breezy and fun environment.”

The Seaside Summer Concert schedule is as follows:

Thursday, July 21, 7: 30 p.m.: Billy Ocean and special guest, Yuna

Thursday, July 28, 7 p.m.: Latino Music by the Seat with a performance by Victor Manuelle.
