Fort Dupont Summer Concert Series 2009

It just doesn't seem like summer without spending at least one summer evening at Fort Dupont Park in Southeast Washington, DC. It's a beauitful amphitheater and park set in historical Fort Dupont Park. The crowd is always nice and the shows are always a treat. The best thing about it besides the huge friendly crowds is that it is FREE! I've been going since I was a boy and the memories just keep builiding. Check out the 2009 line up listed below:

July 18th -- Original "P" featuring Fuzzy Haskins and Grady Thomas (Ken Staton and the James Brown Review)

July 25th -- Ray, Goodman & Brown (Formerly The Moments) ["Pookie Hudson's" Spaniels]

August 1st -- Radio "WPFW" Night W/Blue Magic and Force MD's & The Legends

August 8th -- Rose Royce (Julia Nixon)

August 15th -- Mother's Finest (Derek McKeith Featuring Alyson Williams)

August 22nd -- TBA Special Surprise Guest

Concerts are on Saturdays and they are free and open to the public.

Note: I hope that the Special Guest on Aug 22nd is the all time Ft Dupont Park favorite, Roy Ayers. He was always the highlight every year. What happen to you Mr. Ayers? Come back! :)
