Despite much of the day being rather shaky in terms of weather, by late afternoon the rain had stopped and the sun even broke through! So the show with Joey Vellucci Band went on, and it was another good one. We were especially pleased to get this one in because Friday's sponsor, Woburn Mall/KGI Properties, had their shows last summer rained out. This explains Mall Manger Lori Medeiros' smile as she joins SCI's Mike Sances at the concert (photo below).

Update: Though the original forecast this morning was for rain, it looks now as if the weather will clear up for tonight's concert. The show will go on as scheduled.

Free Concert Tonight

The Citizens Park Summer Concert Series continues this Friday, August 10, featuring the Joey Vellucci Band.

Widely known for his signature guitar sound, and having played one of the first Citizens Park Concerts, he's making a return by popular demand this summer.
