The Shark, in cooperation with the Cochecho Arts Festival, is thrilled to announce that live music is back for the summer at Henry Law Park in Dover.

The lineup for summer of 2021


What time are the shows?

Each show will run from 6 to 8 p.m.

About Henry Law Park

  • This is an outdoor venue and there are benches for you to sit on, however, if you want to bring a blanket and grab a spot on the lawn, you are welcome to do so.
  • There is an area to dance, so bring some comfortable shoes!
  • You can bring your own food!  Have a picnic and hear some great tunes.
  • There are public restrooms behind the venue.
  • There is ample parking all around the park, but you might want to get there early.
  • You can bring your dog - it's a park!

What if it rains?

In case of rain, we may move the show to Thompson's Tavern in Dover if possible for the band, but let's not think of that right now. Nothin' but Sunshine, baby!
What a great season we have lined up.  Starting with our friends in ROSIE kicking off the season on July 7.

Grenon on July 14th

What a show this will be! I am excited about this band.  Just before the pandemic, Grenon was on an upward trajectory, then the world ended.  But the band kept working and they have written new material that I can't wait to hear.
If you're not familiar with the band, check out their latest single "Sick," here.
Up next, Tapedeck Heroez.  Check out their list of dates here.
Next up, Dancing Madly Backwards on July 28, 2021.
Looking forward to seeing Aunt Peg on August 4.
Here's the latest addition to the Shark in the Park lineup:  Wellfleet

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
