Music! Music! Music! That is what you hear if you stop by the Cambridge City Band Concerts at the Cambridge Park on many Thursday evenings. Old and young alike enjoy listening to the music and visiting with their friends.
Most like to come early to visit and have a hot dog or sloppy joe at the Band Concession Stand. They also have some great home baked treats to enjoy along with many cold drinks.
Most likely you will see Berk Jones there early getting everything organized for the evening. Berk has been with the City Band for a long time and is its present director. He makes the evening fun for everyone with his unique costumes, sense of humor, and sometimes he even sings.
Residents of Cambridge and the surrounding area feel lucky to have such an entertaining evening at no cost. The band is a combination of high school students and retired adults who just love music. They practice weekly and come up with some entertaining programs. These are skilled musicians who just want a chance to perform and make people happy with their music.
After the concert or even at intermission, you will see many enjoying an ice cream cone or sundae from the nearby Parkside Tastee Freeze. You are never too old for an ice cream cone!
Check out their schedule and join in the fun the next time you get the opportunity. You’ll be glad you did. And as Berk would say, “Keep Smilin’.”
