“Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don’t understand the language that you’re singing in, they still know good music when they hear it.” Lou Rous

There are few things as relaxing and indicative of summer than enjoying the warm weather with a cold brew and some good jams!  And it is that time again in and around Compass Pointe.  So, pull up a lawn chair and prepare yourself for a summer full of friends, family and fun live music!

Since the beach is the place to be when the weather is hot-hot-hot, it stands to reason you should enjoy some live music there, too!  Both Wrightsville and Kure Beach are hosting concert series this year.  The Sounds of Summer Concerts in the Park will be held at Wrightsville Beach Park on Thursdays starting at 6:30pm and are free to attend! The first concert is June 14th.
