Saturdays in the Park concerts in Quincy will begin in August
QUINCY – After a successful run in 2021, bringing almost 400 people to Safford Park, Saturdays concerts in the park will return on August 6.
“It attracted residents from all over the city who are interested in music and part of the community. It went really well, so we decided to keep it running for a third year,” Walter said. Hubley, co-founder of the Wollaston Hill Neighborhood Association. .
Spanning all four Saturdays in August, the series will feature two musical acts for each day, performing from 3-8 p.m.
Hubley said he was excited for the first act, The Sprints, on August 6. The Sprints are local teens who performed at the association’s PorchFest event.

“We are very happy to have them back. They just keep getting better,” said Walter Hubley.
He said he expects The Tokyo Tramps, slated for the second act on August 6, to bring his strong stage presence and audience engagement. The Gypsy Moths will perform on August 20; its members are from Quincy. The band recently hit No. 2 on Connecticut’s alt-rock radio charts.
Walter Hubley and Kathy Hubley, a member of the Quincy school board and co-founder of the association, combined their passions for music and community development to start running Saturdays in the park.
“It’s an opportunity for neighbors and visitors to come together and get to know each other through a shared musical experience,” said Walter Hubley.
