The City of Marco Island Parks and Rec held the first concert of the Island Rocks Concert Series for 2021 at Veterans Park on Saturday. The evening featured the Stacey Allison Band followed by Joel Fry with a special appearance with Island Theater Company to start the evening off.
Samantha Malloy, Manager of Parks, Recreation and Culture, has organized the free concert series since its inception as she stated, “It was a chilly night, so the attendance was low, but those who did come out enjoyed themselves. Our staff counted about 120 people in attendance. Many left because of the cold by the time Joel Fry went on, but those who stayed and braved the cold really enjoyed the performance. People were dancing and Joel took song requests. It was a gorgeous night and plenty of space for people to social distance.”
Food and drink were available for purchase and there was even Hot Chocolate to keep warm!
The next concert will be on March 13th, 2021.
