RCTA Summer Sunset Concert Series 2024!!

June 29 – The Dusty Wright Quartet

Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, singer-songwriter Dusty Wright (born Mark J. Petracca) was given his first record player at three and was hooked on music forever. His youth was a soundtrack provided by both AM and FM radio and his influences include Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Byrds, Todd Rundgren, Dylan, Roxy Music, Joni Mitchell, The Band, Elton John, CSN&Y, Warren Zevon, and so much more. As a teenager, he flung himself into the local music scene that featured DEVO, Tin Huey, Chi-Pig, Hammer Damage, 15-60-75 aka The Numbers Band, Pere Ubu, et al. Moreover, it was the music of New York bands like Television, Patti Smith, Talking Heads, Lou Reed, etc, that made him forgo law school and move to the Big Apple. Soon after, he would start writing and sharing his songs with the world.

The FREE concert evenings are highlighted by picnics and good company as live entertainment enthusiasts gather on the north lawn to enjoy a variety of musical acts as listed below. The Sunset Concert Series is a prime example of how the RCTA aims to provide community engagement experiences for all. All shows start at 7 pm. Please call 212 – 978 – 0277 in advance if there are any questions about the weather. See you at The River as the Sun Goes Down!
