Town of Mansfield, CT
3/29/2016 - 06/02/2016: Concert: Black Rock Social

Summer Concerts on the Square
presented by Connecticut Water

The Mansfield Downtown Partnership and the Town of Mansfield will host the 2016 Summer Concerts on the Square, presented by Connecticut Water, a series of free concerts every Thursday in June and July on the Mansfield Town Square. All performances will take place from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. The rain date for each show is the following Tuesday. All of the concerts are free and open to the public.

Opening the series on Thursday, June 2 will be Black Rock Social, a reggae band from Black Rock, CT. Black Rock Social is a phenomenal 5 piece powerhouse, bringing more fire to the stage than ever before. Their rootsy soul vibe and heavy bass lines, combined with multiple harmonies and blistering guitar & sax solos, separate Black Rock Social from every other reggae band. Their high energy approach, and positive stage presence, provide an unforgettable show for any music fan.

Performance highlights include a sold out show with Steel Pulse, CT Style on WTNH, Bacon & Brew Fest, and sit ins from Josh David Barrett (lead singer of The Wailers), Pete Francis (Dispatch), Jen Durkin (Deep Banana Black Out), Chris Simmons (Leon Russell Band) & Hayley Jane. Be on the look out for their upcoming debut album.

Mansfield residents and friends will enjoy a diverse line-up of musical entertainment for all ages. Visitors are welcome to bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy music by talented musicians from Connecticut and New England.

The Summer Concerts on the Square are made possible with the generous support of Connecticut Water, UConn First Summer, Main Street Homes at Storrs Center, The Oaks on the Square, and Storrs Center Retail.
