Update: Stormy weather postpones first show of Sayville’s free summer concert series until July 8


The threat of fierce thunderstorms moving across Sayville and the rest of Suffolk County this evening has forced the postponement tonight of the first show in Sayville’s “Wednesdays in the Park” free summer concert series.

Soundswell was supposed to hit the stage at The Sayville Common Ground at Rotary Park at 7 p.m. Officials announced the show will instead take place on Thursday at 7 p.m., weather permitting.

You can still catch Soundswell tonight — the band is moving inside and will perform at the Blue Point Brewpub.

GreaterSayville’s original story on the free concert series is below.

Soundswell, featuring 6-foot-7 bass guitarist Keenan Boyle (aka “Tall Mutha Shucka”) of Sayville, kicks off The Sayville Common Ground at Rotary Park’s free summer concert series on Wednesday, July 7 (postponed until July 8, see above).

Boyle — a Sayville High School graduate — and the Soundswell crew will start playing their rock ‘n’ roll dance set at 7 p.m. in the park, located between Candee and Gillette avenues in Sayville, near Main Street.

The “Wednesdays in the Park” series continues every Wednesday through Aug. 25. Rain dates are on Thursdays.
