Atlantic Grill Music by the Sea


Welcome back concerts with Jumbo Circus Peanuts and Joshua Tree, featuring Rebels, to benefit Seacoast Science Center!

Date: Thursday, July 15, 2021 - Thursday, July 22, 2021

Time: 6-8:30pm

We’ve missed you! Summer is here and we are ready to party like it’s 1999… or rather, 2019! All-time, fan-favorite bands, Jumbo Circus Peanuts and Joshua Tree, featuring Rebels, are coming back to the stage for a seaside celebration like no other!

With safety top priority, we are reducing capacity so you and your family and friends can set up your own “pod” of blankets and chairs. And, our new, larger seaside tent has plenty of room for groovin’ to the tunes. As always, you will be able to enjoy the Center’s exhibits during the evening. Masks are now optional for fully vaccinated visitors and staff.  Unvaccinated individuals, ages 3 and up, are strongly encouraged to wear a mask. Please social distance from those not in your family or visiting group.

Concerts are 6-8:30pm; gates open at 5pm.


Thursday, July 15 • Jumbo Circus Peanuts!

Jumbo Circus Peanuts is one of the most fun-loving, local party bands! The big bands’ swinging pop-jazz-funk-soul tunes, crazy costumes, and tossed-into-the-crowd beaded necklaces make for a fantastic evening of family fun.


Thursday, July 22 • Joshua Tree, featuring Rebels

Joshua Tree, the nation’s top tribute to U2, will take the stage on July 22nd. With opener Rebels, a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tribute band to add to the fun, you’ll be singing along and dancing the night away to sunset by the sea.
