Town of Mansfield, CT
4/6/2016 - 07/14/2016: Concert: Amy & The Engine

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.

UConn First Summer presents Amy & The Engine on Thursday, July 14. This Boston-based pop rock band has only been around for a little over a year but has already earned praise from regional and national press, from nominations for the New England Music Award’s Best Songwriter, Best New Act, Pop Act of the Year, and The New England Deli’s Pop Act of the Year, to opening for national artists Vance Joy, Guster, Kacey Musgraves, and Rachel Platten.

Amy is scholastic songstress Amy Allen. After years of playing in bars across Portland, Maine, an appearance on NBC’s The Voice, and eventually a song-writing degree at Berklee College of Music, Amy Allen is turning heads - and catching ears.

The Engine, who all met at Berklee, is lead by long-haired, lead guitarist Vinny da Silva from Londrina, Brazil, surf-loving drummer Mano Ruiz from Lima, Peru.

This is retro pop music you can feel: Nostalgic, sun-shining 70s acoustic guitar, 50s and 60s girl-group influenced swoon-worthy harmonies, surf-rock guitar tones and soulful solos.

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.
