Outdoor Summer Concert Series at THE BLACK BOX

THE BLACK BOX, the region’s premier concert, theater, and event venue, will present an outdoor summer concert series.

The summer kicks off with local favorites the Zajac Brothers on June 25th at 8:00 pm. Brothers Matt and Tyler have been playing music for years but only recently began collaborating and performing together when Tyler moved back east from California after attending the Musician’s Institute. Matt graduated Berklee College of Music in 2018 and has since been performing, recording, and teaching. The band is composed of a revolving cast of session players with the core members being the brothers and longtime bass player and collaborator Ryan Philipps. “Changing guitar players and having different personnel in and out of the group really keeps things fresh and interesting by allowing different tones and colors and tendencies to shine through on different nights,” says Matt. On the 25th, they will be joined by Luke Okerlund on guitar. Luke is a local musician hailing from Worcester, MA. 

No Static returns to THE BLACK BOX on June 27th at 2:00 pm.  One of the few Steely Dan tribute bands in the country, No Static is made up of 10 musicians from around the Boston area. They specialize in expertly performing the music of Steely Dan. Re-creating that bluesy jazz-rock sound that sprung from the fertile imaginations of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker is no small feat. As Dan-Fans know, the tunes are convoluted and complex, spanning many genres; very precise, with time changes and key changes popping up where sometimes least expected. Vocally and musically challenging, this is not an easy band to pay tribute to. No Static has been doing it for over 10 years now and their sold-out shows tell the tale.
