SUMMIT, NJ - The musical sounds of Jamaica will fill Reeves-Reed Arboretum (RRA) August 20, as the Sounds of a Summer Night Concert Series presents MASSIVE reggae band.
Reggae is a music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. Stylistically, reggae is a melting pot embracing influences from Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the United States, combining elements of American jazz and rhythm and blues, with ska, rocksteady, and calypso.
All Sounds of A Summer Night concerts are on Wednesday evenings, and begin with the Arboretum grounds opening at 6 p.m. for concert goers to picnic. The performances are from 7 - 8 p.m.
Sounds of A Summer Night is sponsored, in part, by Nick & Tracy McKee, the Grand Summit Hotel, and the Summit Area Public Foundation. For more information,visit reeves-reedarboretum.org, or call 908 / 273-8787.
