What a fantastic night for our End of Summer Concert with Doo-Wop DeVille. We hope everyone enjoyed our 18th Season of free concerts at the Catherine and Joseph Nisby Bandstand.

Sunday is the End of Summer Concert with Doo-Wop DeVille and it looks like we'll have some perfect weather.

Take a step back in time to the Doo-Wop sound of the 1950's and 60's with its finger snapping, toe-tapping, hand-clapping music.

Plymouth County Mosquito Control sprayed our area Friday and the Away-With-Geese lights keep our field free of geese.

The concert begins at 6 p.m. so remember to bring a blanket or chair and plan to enjoy some great outdoor live music.

8:02 and a bolt of lightning just shot across the sky above the trees. Good call to shut down by 7:45. Thank you to all the attendees for heeding the warning. We’ll hope for better weather next year!

We'll be outside tonight. There's been no rain in Abington. There might be a few droplets but nothing appears on radar for the rest of the night (per weather.com). Hard core Abington Summer Concert attendees want to be outside with the Hipshot Band! Concert starts at 6. So we'll see you there!

All the Abington Summer Concerts Committee can say is WOW!

We have reached our goal for 2022 (including the activities on Kids Night) through the generosity of so many individuals, businesses, organizations and 2021 audience attendees. The program is so full there is no room to add even one more name! How awesome is that!

We'll post the full schedule sometime next week. There are 8 concerts again this year and you will not be disappointed.

Thank you again for supporting the Abington Summer Concerts! We look forward to seeing everyone this summer!

Our Story

The Abington Summer Concerts Series first opened in 2005 with a handful of concerts. Fast forward to 2020 and it’s our 16th season! We now have concerts each Sunday beginning the last Sunday in June and finishing the weekend before Labor Day! All concerts are FREE.

Funding is provided by Sponsors who give $200 or more, Donors who give $25-$199 and by Concert Attendees who contribute each week. We also receive a grant from the Abington Cultural Council each year. NO town funds are ever used.

There is a wide variety of music for all ages to enjoy. Two special concerts each year include an Abington Night with the Abington Community Band and a Kids Night that is a major hit with families. The average weekly attendance in 2019 was 680 with three concerts drawing over 1,000 attendees each. Studio Two - The Beatles Tribute Band still holds the record attendance from 2018 of 1,140. The End of Summer Concert is always a fan favorite too!

Thanks to the Abington Lions Club food is available each week for purchase. They grill up hamburgers and hot dogs and have snacks and drinks at reasonable prices. CREAM (Rt. 18 in Abington) is also on hand with their traveling cart. There is nothing like a hand scooped cup of ice cream on a hot summer night. You may also bring your own food.

We had a blast at Abington Summer Concerts Kids Concert tonight! Our butterfly craft was so busy we didn’t have time to take photos until the rain started but a few brave souls danced in the rain for the last few songs. Thank you Josh & The Jamtones for a fun concert and all the sponsors and businesses who helped make this a great, FREE night of family fun!
Beautiful evening to watch the kids concert! Abington Summer Concerts come see us & Joe's Crazzy Critters South Shore Health
Looking for something fun to do with the kids tonight? Abington Summer Concerts is having FREE Kids Night at the Bandstand - Josh and the Jamtones tonight at their bandstand. Great weather for this summer event.
Last night I went to the Abington Summer Concerts, Doo W*p DeVille was playing ..What a great way to escape the summers heat. The band was fantastic ! The music selection was a good mix, a little bit of everything. I even got to dance twice ! Their presentation on the stage ( their suits, loved them ) and their swaying, clapping to the music was very entertaining. Let’s not forget the fact that they removed themselves from the stage at the end of the night , last song, and strolled through the audience shaking hands with the women with an occasional kiss on the top of the hand. That is something I know that some women will never forget.. NICE TOUCH ! Thank you Abington Concerts for allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful group of musicians /singers.
They rock
