In tune, with Maria Luisa

All of us here at Maria Luisa – including Maria Luisa Whittingham herself – love music.
You might catch us humming (or bopping) along to the great tunes we play in our shops.
That love of music – along with a continued commitment to the community – is what has Maria Luisa Boutique once again serving as one of the sponsors of two annual summer music series in the village:

* The annual Mostly Music concert series presented by Friends of the Nyacks.
On Tuesdays during the summer, from 7:30 p.m., Memorial Park hosts these free concerts. The music is varied, from funk to folk to jazz and rock. (The park is at the foot of Depew, at the Hudson River).
This year’s schedule series continues with:

Aug. 4: Mr. Gone, featuring Peter Fallon and Neil Alexander playing early ’70s jazz fusion.
Aug. 11: The Crusty Gentlemen, offering “big barn-burning bluegrass.”
Bring a blanket, pack some dinner or snacks – and enjoy.
And yes, you can dance along if you’re so inspired.
We, of course, have been known to do just that.

* The annual Music in the Garden at The Hopper House series.
The back garden of the Edward Hopper House, at 82 N. Broadway, is again hosting its annual series of jazz evenings, from 7:30 to 9:30 Thursdays.
The schedule continues with:
Aug. 6: Dom Cicchetti Trio.
Aug. 13: Ben Kono Group.
Again, bring a blanket or lawn chair. Refreshments will be available for purchase prior to the concerts and during intermission. A $5 donation is recommended and helps support the preservation of the house and grounds.

Cool jazz, hot nights… what’s not to love?
