Gas House Gorillas perform on Paris Avenue in Port Royal

in Community by

It was near perfect night to sit outdoors and listen to a free concert on Aug. 27 in Port Royal for the latest installment of Street Music on Paris Avenue, sponsored by the town of Port Royal.

The Gas House Gorillas from New York City played their brand of self-described “rockabilly, swing and blues” with a “sort of wise-guy jump blues” before hundreds of concerts-goers, coaxing a few to get up and dance.

The next street music will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, with Jason Ricci and The Bad Kind. Guests are invited to bring their chairs and dancing shoes to this free concert. The rain location is The Shed on Paris Avenue, one block from the outdoor site.
