It’s Labor Day weekend and First Friday in Nyack and while it may be the unofficial end of summer, there’s still music and art to enjoy and the outdoors to explore. Nyack’s own indie band Regret The our returns to the ‘hood to play the Hudson House. There’s also modern country, classic rock, folk and new age music. You can kayak along the Nyack shore or visit a fun and funky pop up park. If you’re a poet (and did or didn’t know it) there’s a poetry slam to show off your talents.
There are only two weekends left before Back To School season starts and Off-On-Vacation season ends. Savor the last seconds of summer by listening to salsa, Sinatra, jazz, folk or Irish tunes. Learn to row, row, row a boat or join a community bike ride over hill and dale to Hillsdale. When you’ve had enough of the great outdoors, come inside for The Last Chance to see Sally Savage’s photography exhibit or take in an independent filmfest.
This weekend see Nyack with a Hudson River perspective in a kayak, take a bike and spin to NYC or through the Ramapo Mountains, watch a movie in the garden, or find a new best friend that says woof or meow. The music scene has some unique offerings from a first time Rockland appearance to a 91 year old jazz guitarist.
This weekend is perfect for a staycation where you can travel to Elizabethan England, the Lower East Side of the early 1900s or the beach without ever leaving Rockland. There’s an opening reception for an art exhibition, a group art show and plenty of music to satisfy all tastes.
This weekend it’s First Friday and the Nyack Art Collective invites you to head “outdoors” for their group themed show. You can also head to the hills for the sound of music, check out the birds of New York State, or take a “buggy” hike. The Music in the Garden series concludes and there’s also salsa and a tribute to two ’70s music superstars for your listening pleasure.
Looking for some live music? Nyack’s got you covered six out of the next seven days. Nyack Jazz Week wraps up with performances on Fri-Sun; there’s Music On The Hudson in Memorial Park on Tuesday; Nyack indy artist Alyssa Sequoia plays Maureen’s Jazz Cellar on Wednesday; and there’s Music In The Garden at Hopper House on Thursday. Inspired by what you hear and want to join in? The 5th annual Rockland Summer Sings is Tuesday night.
It’s a week to Listen To The Music in and near Nyack. Nyack Jazz Week from the Rockland County Jazz & Blues Society kicks off on Friday. There’s also female-powered, rhythm-centric music, doo wop, rock n roll, salsa and a hometown brother sister duo. Plus an artist’s reception, a movie about improv, a storytelling workshop and a bicycle ride from Bear Mountain to Cold Spring.
This weekend you can travel to France or a Golden Pond without leaving Rockland. You can hear the music of the Grateful Dead, the Beatles, Dylan, reggae and jazz. Cars will take over Main Street and a parking lot will turn into a Drive In. Cycle to a zoo or learn how to play pickleball.
Summer is sizzlin’ with a First Friday and a Nyack Street Fair. There’s photography exhibits, music a plenty, laughs, group singing and Shakespeare, too. Listen to music in the great outdoors as the Music on the Hudson and Jazz in the Garden series continue this week.
