The West Seattle Big Band is just one of many musical acts that will be performing this summer at Hiawatha Park.

Just a few more weeks left of Hiawatha concert series

There are just a few more weeks to enjoy this year's Summer Concert Series at Hiawatha Park, organized by the Admiral Neighborhood Association.

The concerts, which begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays, have been going on since July 23 and will continue until Aug. 27.

Mark Wainwright of the Admiral Neighborhood Association said the series so far has gone great.

Attendees can expect to hear music from some local artists that is fun, relaxing and has appeal for a wide audience, according to the neighborhood association.

All concerts will be free to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic, relax on the lawn and listen to some music with other members of the community.

August 13: Elizabeth Carpenter Trio. This trio delivers your favorite jazz standards from the 1930s and beyond.

August 20: Brian Waite Band. This band is comprised of three multi-talented dads and “rock ‘n roll adventurers.” Their latest album, “20,000 Volts Under the Sea,” takes listeners on an underwater adventure in search of an electric eel guitar while exploring rock, blues, jazz and reggae music along the way.

August 27: West Seattle Big Band. A local favorite who donates 100 percent of their earnings to raising awareness of and funding instrumental music programs in West Seattle area public schools.
