Called the Sunset Concert Series, it features bands playing on a stage with the pier as the backdrop. There’s even a warm-up band plus a DJ before the main show. It starts at 4:30 p.m., with the main band taking the stage after 6, and ends to a brilliant sunset – almost as if nature is supplying the final applause – at around 7:30 p.m.

• Aug. 6 – Robert Randolph & The Family Band with special guests The Reluctant Apostles Featuring Katie Segal
