LIVINGSTON, NJ – Regal Bank, a full-service community bank headquartered in Livingston, is hosting its 10th annual free outdoor concert series at Livingston’s Memorial Oval, beginning on July 1. The series features live musical performances every Sunday evening in July from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the field’s gazebo.

This year’s series features some of the region’s most popular party bands. Each week features a different genre of music, including doo-wop, big band arrangements, the music of the 80s, and tributes to Chicago and Bruce Springsteen, all chosen to surprise and delight, according to Regal Bank.

“The bands are carefully selected to appeal to all ages and to get the crowds dancing and enjoying Livingston’s gorgeous summer evenings,” said Monte Ehrenkranz, vice president of business development. “In fact, input from Livingston’s residents helps in choosing the bands that perform.”
