First things first—due to the several hours of thunderstorms predicted for this evening, as a matter of safety, we have decided to cancel tonight’s concert featuring Marc Berger and Ride. We are disappointed, but hopeful that Marc and his band can join us for a concert sometime in September.
We had a soggy Friday night last week (with thankfully no thunder or lightning!) when DJ Catch1 played the Ossining waterfront. We had a great turnout at Louis Engel Park and even though it started to rain pretty heavily about halfway through, many of us stayed (glowsticks and all) and danced anyway-- what a phenomenal workout!
The MC (Ossining’s own Hopeton Lemon) and his crew kept it upbeat and positive (we even danced to “Umbrella”, “It’s Raining Men” and other appropriately themed tunes) and we can’t wait to have them back for another concert. Thanks to everyone who joined us for this awesome Party in the Park!
However, in the meantime, I hope you will join us NEXT Friday (August 25th) for Cuboricua, an incredible seven-piece band specializing in salsa, Cuban and Dominican music. This will be another great opportunity to show us what you're made of on the dance floor! The fun starts at 7PM, looking forward to seeing you there.
I hope you have your dancing shoes on, because tonight is the night-- DJ Catch1 will be hitting the Louis Engel Waterfront stage tonight at 7PM for a DJ dance party with us. You may know DJ Catch1 as Ossining's own Hopeton Lemon, who has quickly become one of Westchester's premiere entertainers. We promise, this is a waterfront concert you will not want to miss-- bring your family and friends down for a great night and "catch" the sunset with us! The Gyro Uno truck will be on site slinging delicious gyros, salads and kebabs, so if you don't have time to pack a dinner, bring a few dollars and make a night of it.
Also, be sure to mark your calendar for next Friday, August 18th, when Marc Berger & Ride will be returning to our Summer Concert Series for an evening of soulful guitar tunes (think Bob Dylan-style blues) with a nod to the American West. These guys got a great turnout last time and we look forward to seeing them again this summer.
The weather is looking great for tonight's Ossining Fire Department Parade-- this is an event that our community looks forward to each and every year, and I'm sure our engines will be looking mighty fine. The parade steps off from Roosevelt Square at 7PM and winds down Croton Avenue to the waterfront-- be sure to wave at our emergency responders who do such an incredible job keeping us safe year round (I hear Chief Gio will be helping to represent the Ossining Police tonight, so keep your eyes peeled for him riding with the OPD!) The parade will make traveling around Ossining tough for a few hours-- traffic will be restricted along Route 9 and Croton Avenue/ Main Street between 5PM and 8PM, so if you don't plan to watch from the sidelines, please plan your travels accordingly. And for everyone else, have a great time!
Our usual Friday night concert will be moved to Saturday this week because of the Parade, so I hope you will come down tomorrow night (Saturday, August 5th) and spend your evening with The Mike Risko Band, who will be taking the stage at Louis Engel Park at 7PM. We hear DJ Johnny G will also be in the house spinning tunes at some point, so it is sure to be a great evening.
The Gyro Uno food truck and Good Choice Kitchen will also be there and ready to serve you, so don't forget to bring a few bucks (or a picnic) and make a night of it on the waterfront. Word to the wise-- Laurie (the owner of Good Choice) made a great suggestion-- if you know you are coming down to the concert and what you'd like to eat, you can place an order online and she will bring it down with her! Just make sure you put a note on the order in the "Special Request" box so she knows to meet you at Engel Park!
It's Friday, and that means it's time for the next installment in our Waterfront Concert Series-- tonight, Albany natives Jocelyn & Chris Arndt will take the Engel Park stage at 7PM for a rock show you won't want to miss! If you won't take my word for it, check them out performing their cover of "Give Me One Reason" by Tracy Chapman-- now imagine hearing this while enjoying an Ossining sunset, and thank us later!
If you want to hear the music from the other side of the stage, there is still time to sign up for tonight's kayak tour led by Ossining yogi Lauri Nemetz-- this tour is a special one, in that it includes a grounding outdoor yoga session. To get your tickets, click here.
All I can say is, thank goodness for the Spray Park! We have experienced steady 90 degree + temperatures for the past several days, but it seems that a short reprieve may be coming this weekend, so fingers crossed that we may all be able to breathe and move just a little bit easier. Why not make the best of it and enjoy an evening with a cool river breeze? The Uncle Brothers will be taking the stage at Louis Engel Waterfront Park tonight (Friday, July 21st) at 7PM. You'll want to bring the kids along-- The Uncle Brothers are family-friendly entertainment, themes like respect, conflict resolution, and kindness figure prominently in their material, and who couldn't use some more of that in this day and age? I look forward to seeing you down there-- bring a picnic dinner to enjoy, or a few dollars to buy a snack from our food trucks. It's going to be a great night out in Ossining!
Tonight is also opening night for WCT's "July One Acts" at 23 Water Street, the show begins at 8PM. I was invited to the "Sneak Peak" last night and I thoroughly enjoyed all four plays. I recommend you check it out, if not tonight, than at one of the other performances this weekend (Saturday, July 22nd at 2PM or 8PM, or enjoy a special Q&A session with the playwrights and director after the 3PM performance on Sunday, July 23rd. We are incredibly fortunate to have such innovative and affordable entertainment right in our own backyard, and many members of the WCT group are Ossining residents!
