Sunset Sounds Concert Series: Ed Fast & Congabop
Get outside, enjoy the return of live music to Hartford, and support our hometown musicians during this unprecedented summer. So grab your best mask, queue up your quarantine family and pals, and join us for the first-ever socially-distant Sunset Sounds Concert Series the first three Thursdays of August from 6 to 8 pm! Bring a picnic and your lawn chair or blanket to enjoy music on the Richard P. Garmany Fund Music & Education Terrace (made possible by Hartford Foundation for Public Giving) in the lovely setting of the Butler-McCook Garden. Or, watch the concerts from the comfort of your own home on Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/pages/Butler-Mc-Cook-House-Garden
Ed Fast and Congabop are celebrated in Hartford for their soulful, sizzling performances. As a Hartt School alum, percussionist Fast is right at home sitting-in with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, touring with premier Broadway road shows, or gigging in backup bands at Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun accompanying the likes of Aretha Franklin and Paul Anka. Congabop features top artists in jazz, dance, and drumming coming together to create a unique and powerful force in Afro-Cuban Jazz, along with exceptional vocalists who apply their voice to unique “Rumbafied” versions of jazz standards, Broadway classics, and popular music of The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and more.
Same-day registration will be allowed only if the site has not reached capacity. In the event of inclement weather, the Sunset Sounds concerts will be moved to the following day (Friday, August 21st from 6-8 pm)
