Classical, patriotic, oldies tunes at Independence Park


The 4th of July Concert Series continues in Independence Park tonight with two bands well-known throughout the country, one that plays everything from classical to patriotic, another that turns back the clock to a bygone era of popular music.


The Our Lady of Light Band is known throughout the United States, Canada and Europe as one of the premier amateur bands. Directed by Maestro Manuel Medeiros Canto, the 50 member band has played for many prestigious occasions such as the Bicentennial of America celebrations in Washington DC, as well as playing for President Bill Clinton. They play all types of music which includes Stars and Stripes Forever by John Phillip Sousa, Olympic Fanfare and Theme by John Williams, music from the Beach Boys, and the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky. This opening night Patriotic show will not disappoint.


Honored as New England’s #1 Oldies Band, King's Row's elaborate musical arrangements and powerful four lead vocalists make every one of their performances exciting and memorable. They have been honored by radio station B101.5 as the “KINGS” of the oldies. They consistently produce a sophisticated, emotional romantic sound. King’s Row has set the standard of excellence in oldies. They have appeared at countless venues throughout New England and their performances have vaulted their notoriety to a national level.
