MOUNTAINSIDE — The Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series continues its 53rd season of music on Wednesday evening, July 24, with a performance by EagleMania. The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, led by Chairman Linda Carter, invites the public to attend this free concert that begins at 7:30 p.m. in Echo Lake Park in Mountainside.
EagleMania is an ensemble of six veteran musicians whose goal is to faithfully reproduce the unique sound of The Eagles. Formed in 2010, EagleMania has emerged as the leading Eagles tribute band throughout the East Coast, performing to sold-out audiences everywhere they go. The band plays all the hits of the Eagles, as well as some favorites from solo albums by Don Henley, Glen Frey, and Joe Walsh.
“Bring the entire family and take it easy with the music of the Eagles in Echo Lake Park,” said Freeholder Chairman Carter. “Pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on, and enjoy the sounds of summer under the stars.”
The Union County information van will be at the concert site with personnel from the Union County Clerk’s Office, the Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs and other knowledgeable staff to answer questions and offer information about interesting programs and recreational activities that are available to Union County residents.
The Summer Arts Festival concerts continue throughout July and August on Wednesdays beginning at 7:30 p.m. The concerts in July will be at Echo Lake Park on the Mountainside-Westfield border and in August at Oak Ridge Park in Clark. Lawn chairs, blankets and picnic baskets are encouraged. Refreshments and snacks will be available from vendors.
