omg this poor family. im saying prayers. Get better quick Dale
Last night I went to the Abington Summer Concerts, Doo Wop DeVille was playing ..What a great way to escape the summers heat. The band was fantastic ! The music selection was a good mix, a little bit of everything. I even got to dance twice ! Their presentation on the stage ( their suits, loved them ) and their swaying, clapping to the music was very entertaining. Let’s not forget the fact that they removed themselves from the stage at the end of the night , last song, and strolled through the audience shaking hands with the women with an occasional kiss on the top of the hand. That is something I know that some women will never forget.. NICE TOUCH ! Thank you Abington Concerts for allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful group of musicians /singers.

The Double Eagle Oktoberfest German Band playing at Abington Celebrates first Oktoberfest in 2016!
What a great night! .Loved the Motown music. That is MY kinda music...The weather cooperated, I must say, I was a little skeptical for a few moments. Got to hand it to the band, Soul City managed to get just about everyone clapping, singing and some were dancing. I for one, was dancing .. . Would love to hear what other songs they sing.. Thank you everyone .. I have been one happy camper this summer with the tunes that have been played.
Well folks, you did it again. Another great night of music. MBA was without a doubt “ out of sight “..... it was “ groovy “ ...” and let’s not forget. ‘ DYNOMITE “.. They cast a spell upon us with their opening song and got everyone up out of their chair to dance .... and we all did. If I wasn’t on the floor dancing ,, then I was dancing in my chair. They could not keep me still .. Thank you for the best time that I have had in a very long time.
Went to see GINAMARK last night. Wow! It was so hot outside. Listening to Gina sing made the weather, without a doubt, more tolerable. They were awesome. A few of my friends that were with me, were Janis Joplin fans and were quite pleased with her performance. My favorite song of the evening was , “Over the Rainbow” ..Her pitch and range is outstanding. The audience was totally silent while she performed that. Once again, it was a great evening. Thank you for giving us all the chance to see and to hear fantastic music. Looking forward to next Sunday..
Let’s party together!
Nancy I am so sorry to hear of Curt's passing. I have you all in my thoughts and prayers.
We added your series to our guide! Thank you for all you do for the community!

Abington Summer Concert Series - Studio Two - A Beatles Tribute

If you missed our concerts on August 23rd and August 30th here are the YouTube links. See everyone in 2021!
"Studio Two": https://youtu.be/HSZ7YFub2_o
"The Brass Kickin' Horns": https://youtu.be/mvWaZqkNHTk

Studio Two performed live on Sunday, August 23 in the Abington High School auditorium.

It would have been nice to open our 16th season with a ribbon cutting for the new entrance to the Millennium Memorial Complex which includes Reilly Field, an all-weather track and the Catherine and Joseph Nisby Bandstand! We'll make it extra special when we return in 2021.

In the Zoom Room

The ASC Committee was hopeful that August concerts could be held but with restrictions of only 100 people for outdoor gatherings (confirmed by our Health Agent) it will not be possible. All the bands scheduled for this year have been moved to 2021.

Doo-Wop DeVille was scheduled to perform at our End-of-Summer concert and has done a Covid-inspired, original music video that was assembled entirely from remote musical and video performances. They hope it makes you smile!


Covid-19 has fundamentally changed the way we socialize. The Zoom app has become a popular platform for virtual socializing. This tune is meant to bring a sm...

[06/09/20]   To all who enjoy LIVE MUSIC at the Abington Summer Concerts...

It is with a heavy heart that the Abington Summer Concerts Committee has had to cancel the concerts scheduled for the last Sunday in June, all of July along with Kids Night.

We have no idea when bans will be lifted. Most of our concerts draw between 500 and 1000 people, so with that many in attendance, social distancing would be almost impossible. There is also the issue of keeping restrooms sanitized and whether or not food and ice cream could be served following the added rules. We are waiting to see what will be allowed in Phase III before we make a decision about the August concerts.

Our plan is to move everything to the same weekend next year. Hopefully by then our country will have some sense of normalcy.

This was a very difficult decision to make but one that we feel is in the best interest of the many people involved.

[04/26/20]   It was so good to see one of last season's summer concerts this Sunday afternoon on Abington CAM.. It was held indoors due to rain but it brought back great memories. Hopefully Abington CAM will broadcast more...Still hoping for LIVE concerts this summer at the Bandstand. This was the "Brass Kickin' Horns" formerly known as "The Infractions."

[08/26/19]   A very special thank you to all our Sponsors, Donors and weekly attendees for supporting the Abington Summer Concerts. It was another great summer (or fall if you were there Sunday)!

A shout out to the Abington Lions Club members who volunteered their time each week to feed those attending the concerts.

Thank you to CREAM and Craig Perry for bringing their traveling ice cream cart each week and cooling us off!

The Abington Summer Concerts Committee; Nancy Reid, Chairperson, Ken Coyle, Selectmen's Liaison, Dr. Peter McDonald and Jan Prall hope that everyone enjoyed their summer listening to LIVE music at the Catherine and Joseph Nisby Bandstand! See you in 2020!

[08/25/19]   We'll be outside for Dale and the Duds. Come enjoy this beautiful fall weather as we bid farewell to summer! Food and ice cream will be available!

[08/18/19]   We’ll be outside for tonight‘s concert with Roomful of Blues. The bandstand area was sprayed this week for mosquitoes by Noonan Landscape & Tree Service. Thanks Mike Noonan!

Our Story

The Abington Summer Concerts Series first opened in 2005 with a handful of concerts. Fast forward to 2020 and it’s our 16th season! We now have concerts each Sunday beginning the last Sunday in June and finishing the weekend before Labor Day! All concerts are FREE.

Funding is provided by Sponsors who give $200 or more, Donors who give $25-$199 and by Concert Attendees who contribute each week. We also receive a grant from the Abington Cultural Council each year. NO town funds are ever used.

There is a wide variety of music for all ages to enjoy. Two special concerts each year include an Abington Night with the Abington Community Band and a Kids Night that is a major hit with families. The average weekly attendance in 2019 was 680 with three concerts drawing over 1,000 attendees each. Studio Two - The Beatles Tribute Band still holds the record attendance from 2018 of 1,140. The End of Summer Concert is always a fan favorite too!

Thanks to the Abington Lions Club food is available each week for purchase. They grill up hamburgers and hot dogs and have snacks and drinks at reasonable prices. CREAM (Rt. 18 in Abington) is also on hand with their traveling cart. There is nothing like a hand scooped cup of ice cream on a hot summer night. You may also bring your own food.
