The Music on the Bay concert series brought music and dancing in Tucker Park on Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay on Aug. 10.

Nando Griffiths and Pure Fyah, a reggae group, and progressive rockers Inner Situation performed for the crowd.

The series is organized by the Bay Improvement Group as part of the Bring Back the Bay campaign in an effort to rebuild the neighborhood after Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

“We were really, really happy to have supported the Bay Improvement Group, to perform for them and their goal to build Sheepsheads Bay back up,” said Jeff Free, lead singer of Inner Situation. “Whenever people make an assertive effort to improve conditions in the neighborhood, especially with such history as Sheepshead Bay, it’s an admirable effort, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

Residents young and old came out to enjoy the show, according to Free.

“It was a mixed crowd,” said Free. “We didn’t have any expectations about the crowd, and it was mixed. There were some kids, some old folks, in between — kind of what you’d expect at an outdoor festival on the street in the summer. Everyone was having a good time.”

One couple in attendance said they enjoyed the music — and the dancing.

“We heard there would be music and dancing, and my and my wife knew we had to go, we can dance to any kind of music,” said David Binn, a longtime Avenue U resident, who attended with his wife. “We loved the first band, the reggae group, because we could dance Latin dance to it. We were the only ones dancing, but we had a great time.”
