The Fabulous Newports Play Silver Spring's Veterans Plaza, Sunday, August 21, 2011 at 2 pm. Free!

One of D.C.’s most active bands in the 1960s, the Newports reorganized in 2001, and have been active again since playing for clubs and private affairs. The current lineup includes two original members plus six other veteran performers. The Newports play vintage rock ‘n’ roll at its very best, with great heart and authenticity, and feature numerous classic hits of the ‘50s and ‘60s.

The Newports will present a free outdoor concert in Silver Spring this Sunday afternoon, August 21! It takes place from 2:00 - 4:00, on the Veterans Plaza Stage of the Silver Spring Civic Building . And all three of the Filterettes will be singing--Becky Briggs too-- so look forward to a great afternoon!

Veterans Plaza features some bistro tables and seats, plus a wall where you can sit. But feel free to bring a lawn chair if you wish, and picnic food; there are also many restaurants within easy walking distance. We hope you can join us, and we’d love to see you!
