Music at Maverick

Originally uploaded by marilora.
Zumix's Tuesday night concert series in Maverick Square began this evening. Tonight's act was supposed to be "Toussaint" and his band, but unfortunately for some reason he coldn't make it. His sister "Ebony" stepped up and took his place and put on a great show. She has an amazing voice and she blew away Maverick Square. This summer along with its Tuesday night concerts, Zumix plans a series of Sunday evening concerts at Piers Park. If today's concert was any indication of the kind of music concert-goers can expect, it should be a great summer. Best of all it's all for free (although, I'm sure if you would like to make a small donation to Zumix, your generosity would be much appreciated.) Just take the Blue Line to Maverick. Tuesday night concerts are at Maverick Square from 6 p.m to 8 p.m. and run until August 30th. Sunday concerts are at Piers Park from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m and run until September 11th (No concert on Sept. 4th). For more information and to find out about the great work that Zumix is doing with the young people of East Boston check out Zumix's web site.

Here is a short camera phone video of Ebony singing. The crappy mic on the cell phone does not do her voice justice. You will need Quicktime to view it.

    Where can I find a list of these Tuesday and Sunday concerts?

    I believe that they have a schedule on their web site, but I don't think they have the whole schedule on the site yet. They passed out a paper list on at the first Tuesday event.
