N.E.'s best bands

Seacoast Science Center presents Music by the Sea for 18th year

RYE — The Seacoast Science Center's Music-by-the-Sea outdoor concert series brings some of New England's favorite bands to the seacoast this summer.

The series kicks off Thursday, July 11 with U2 tribute band, Joshua Tree.

Entrain takes the stage July 18. Entrain has proven to be a favorite of Music-by-the-Sea fans and has brought sell-out crowds. The band is praised for their ability to shift effortlessly between musical styles — from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk — all based around drums and an infectious rhythm.

On July 25, Even Steven will mix it up with the great classics of the '50s, '60s, '70s and beyond. One of the most fun-loving, foot-stomping, local party bands will close the series on Aug. 1; Jumbo Circus Peanuts. The big bands' swinging-pop-jazz, crazy costumes and tossed-into-the-crowd beaded necklaces keep the crowd on their feet all evening.

Located at Odiorne Point State Park, the Seacoast Science Center's concerts are held under a tent on the lawn, rain or shine. Visitors may bring a beach blanket or chair, pack a picnic, or purchase freshly grilled dinner and beverages on site.

The music begins at 6 p.m. and gates open at 5 p.m. for dining. Tickets are required and are $10 for adults and $2 for children ages 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free. Tickets are available at, at the center, or at the gate the evening of the concert. Members may purchase tickets at half-price.
