Sunset Serenades start Thursday

By Stephanie Merry

As the summer months unfold, free outdoor concerts pop up all over town, but Sunset Serenades have something no other series does: The entertainment takes place a stone's throw from Sumatran tigers. The National Zoo's annual evening concert series kicks off Thursday and runs weekly through Aug. 5. The performances take place on Lion/Tiger Hill, and visitors often bring blankets and picnics, although food and drinks (including beer and wine) are available for purchase. The first installment is sure to get zoo-goers in a summery state of mind, as the Steve Scott Project brings the sounds of the Caribbean to Woodley Park with a concert of reggae, calypso and a dash of jazz. Upcoming weeks promise a bit of musical diversity with the GHZ [Gigahertz] Band and Show, with music inspired by Hendrix and Clapton, followed by the rockabilly-blues hybrid the Grandsons on Aug. 5.
