The final curtain was drawn to wrap up the Arts, Culture, and Tourism (ACT) Committee’s Tune Up the Parks concert music series last Wednesday evening. Local rock band, Fall of Day, took to the stage to host the final performance of the 2017 music series.

From beneath the wings of the Essex Memorial Spitfire in the Heritage Gardens Park, the four-piece rock cover band played a variety of tunes to appease its listening audience, including from classic bands like Led Zeppelin and modern bands like the Foo Fighters.

Throughout the months of July and August, the Tune Up the Parks concert series provided live music in Essex Centre on Wednesday evenings and in Colchester on Monday evenings. Additional live music events were also hosted in McGregor and Harrow Centre this year.

Area musicians and bands signed up to take part in the series, and audience members were welcome to make a donation for their efforts.

Around an average of 40 to 50 individuals pulled up a blanket or lawn chair each week in Essex Centre to take in a new, live performance.

The music series offered a wide-variety of genres to enjoy to appease anyone’s musical tastes, including county, rock, roots, and classical.
