Bristol's 2024 4th of July Concert Series lineup announced


Here it is, folks, your July 4th Concert Series lineup, the annual effort by the 4th of July Committee to make everyone (and their varied musical tastes) happy — and judging by the feedback to date, they have done a pretty good job.

In addition to great music, a variety of food trucks will be on hand during the series, offering great food for those looking to enjoy dinner or snacks alfresco while listening to the performances.

“The biggest challenge is always how to decide which bands to feature,” said Patti Nenna, who chairs the concert committee. “We want a balance of styles, we want local talent represented, but we had 144 musical acts apply which made it really hard. It’s a group effort, and everyone put a lot of time and work into the process.”

​The lineup is as follows; band descriptions and start times will soon be listed on the Committee’s website, as well as published in the Official Souvenir Booklet prior to the series.

Friday, June 21 — Kate & the Mongrels; Crushed Velvet
Saturday, June 22 — Whiskey Saints; Best of Foo
Sunday, June 23 — Changes in Latitude
Monday, June 24 — 88th Army Band - RI Army National Guard
Tuesday, June 25 — East Bay Summer Wind Ensemble; Chicago Total Access
Wednesday, June 26 — Bristol County Chorus; Andre Arsenault & Scott Grimo; Eric "Benny" Bloom
Thursday, June 27 — Barefoot Brian Cabral; Bulletproof
Friday, June 28 — 7-Day Weekend
Saturday, June 29 — Back in the Day
Sunday, June 30 — Manel, the Island Man; Steppin Out featuring New Image
Monday, July 1 — Mt. Hope High School Pop Up; To Be Continued Band; Topaz
Tuesday, July 2 — Quick Hits; David Clark's All-About Joel
