Concerts on the Waterfront Return to Sackets Harbor Starting June 26

The Sackets Harbor Historical Society announced the lineup for their free upcoming summer concert series, Concerts on the Waterfront.

Held from 3:00 to 5:00 pm every Sunday from June 26 through September 4, the summer concert series is back for its 38th season.  Last year, the theme represented the relief of the return of live music.  The 2022 theme, “Let’s Celebrate!” is yet another joyous return for summer shows.

The spectacular waterfront views of Lake Ontario make for a perfect music venue, and Sackets Harbor also holds a deep historical significance. After the War of 1812 broke out between Great Britain and the United States, the harbor became the center point for American naval and military operations along Lake Ontario.

Each concert in the series will be held at the Sackets Harbor Battlefield, and the long-standing popular jazz group Sacci Band will open the series on June 26. Featuring American pop music from the WWII era and styles from the Golden Age of Swing, the band continues to honor traditions with the series’ first performance.

Other upcoming performances for the summer series include Tink Bennett and Taylor Made, ATLAS, The Dakotas, Oceans Below, and Maria DeSantis Orchestra, among others. With genres such as jazz, country, classic rock, Latin jazz, folk, classical and more, Concerts on the Waterfront certainly has something for everyone to enjoy throughout the summer season.

Over the course of the summer 11 talented, diverse groups will take the stage at the Sackets Harbor Battlefield. Guests are invited to bring chairs and blankets, and should the weather not permit an outdoor show, the rain site will be St. Andrews Parish Center on East Main St. & Woolsey St.

Below are the full summer series concert dates.
