Although the pandemic has cancelled Branford’s beloved summer jazz series for the second year in a row, weekly music is back on Branford green every Thursday night, hosted by the Town of Branford and Branford Parks and Recreation.
Backed by a professional sound system and set up on the grass, the series of shows began playing to appreciative, growing crowds of community members on Thursday nights in June. The weekly music will continue all summer and into early October, with a line-up of live local bands or “DJ on the Green” music by Dennis Nardella of Nardella’s Music Company of Branford. Nardella will be featured this Thurs. July 1, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. All shows are weather permitting.
Together with a schedule of weekly Thursday performances, July’s free entertainment schedule on the Branford green will also include “Way Back Wednesdays,” said Colin Sheehan, Arts, Culture and Special Events and Programs Coordinator for the Town of Branford.
