The Jack Marlowe Park Summer Concert Series kicked off  last Friday with Ska band Beat Soup. The rain held off and an enthusiastic crowd gathered for the concert sponsored by the Woburn Mall/KGI Properties.

Audience members were treated to Beat Soup’s Ska-influenced style that included both instrumental dance pieces and vocal numbers.
