Music at the Marina Invites
The months of June, July and August generally bring sunny clear skies over Everett. The cooler evenings, though, are an excuse to sing and dance the hours away. Come to the marina on Thursdays or Saturdays and the crowds will just blow you away. Experience Music at the Marina.
Though admission is free, bring cash for things you can’t do without while enjoying a concert – wine, beer and lots of local food. The setting, overlooking the water – the Port Gardner Landing – wonderful location and impressive architecture which won awards. Port Gardner Landing is a three building mixed-use redevelopment of Everett’s Southeast Marina, including the 36-room Inn and two buildings containing office, restaurant and retail uses.
On Thursday and Saturday evenings, from 6:30 to 8:30, Port Gardner Landing comes alive with the best summer dance party and great music provided by select bands. See performers rock their particular genre; the list covers a wide spectrum of music styles . There’s reggae, blues, industrialized country, pop, rock, rock & soul and rock & blues.
There’s Celtic-Bluegrass, Latin folk, swing, psychedelic funk, and harmonic blues. These are just your Thursday performers. Saturdays play country/rock, Brazilian world rhythms, funk & soul, tropical Latin Salsa, electronic pop, reggae/rock, Americana, and upbeat alternative folk.
You can choose to have dinner at Lombardi’s Italian Restaurant, stage-side, or go for your local food truck serving pizza, BBQ, burgers, and other grilled delights. And yes, grab a glass of wine or beer at the Marina Beer Garden. If you want to stay overnight, do so at the inn and listen to the concert from their patio.
And if you are part of the picnic crowd and just want to relax in their lovely park lawn, be sure to bring your chairs and blankets, sans the alcohol. The place is ADA accessible, plenty of parking, with public restrooms, and allows you to bring your leashed dogs.
