BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Summer Concert Series kicked off with a boot kicking, knee slapping, fiddle playing good time to a crowd at Memorial Field last Wednesday to enjoy the sounds of Radio Nashville for the first of the four week Summer Concert Series. 

Radio Nashville and their six piece band opened the Summer Concert Series playing top country hits from Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, along with some classic oldies like Charlie Daniels' fiddle dueling in "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," and capped off their performance with an encore pleasing rendition of Rascal Flatts' "Life is a Highway."  

The Wednesday night Summer Concert Series is presented by the Berkeley Heights Recreation Commission Special Events Committee partnered with the Suburban Chamber of Commerce with the following season sponsors: The Suburban Chamber of Commerce, Berkeley Heights Rotary Club, Berkeley Aquatic Club, Smith Chiropractic Foundation and the Grain & Cane Restaurant and Table. The Radio Nashville concert was sponsored by Anything Floral and the Berkeley Heights YMCA. Free popcorn and water is given out at each concert along with raffle drawings to Delicious Heights, Giovanni's Bistro and Bar and Goodman's Restaurant and Deli.

The summer concerts bring a sense of old-time summer fun with children flocking to the newly installed playground, playing tag or having a catch with the frisbees supplied by the Berkeley Heights YMCA. Some guests came early and set up their spot to enjoy a picnic dinner before the concert, while others enjoyed the menu selection offered by the Grain & Cane Gastrotruck that included a special southern themed sandwich selection served with hand cut fries. (See photo gallery for menu description.) 

Mayor Bob Woodruff along with council members and the Communications Committee were present with renderings of the municipal building plans and answered questions of inquiring citizens.  

This past week, the friendly staff of the Berkeley Heights YMCA and the community pool and Anything Floral were giving out water, Frisbees, ice pops and candy with gave away raffles of their own. 

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and come out to enjoy this week's concert featuring Beginnings, a Chicago tribute band with horn section, sponsored by Autumn Lake Healthcare at Berkeley Heights and Taylor Rental. Concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Park at the corner of Plainfield and Park avenues.

Editor's Note: TAPinto Berkeley Heights is at each concert snapping family photos to enter into the Summer Concert Photo Contest presented by the Suburban Chamber of Commerce and TAPinto Berkeley Heights. Two winners will be randomly selected to win a $100 gift certificate to Delicious Heights or Goodman's Restaurant and Deli.
