Tamaqua Chamber of Commerce Announces Free Summer Concert Series

The Tamaqua Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its 11th Annual Free Summer Concert Series at the historic Tamaqua train station, 18 N. Railroad St in Tamaqua.

The season kicks off Thursday, June 1 with Schuylkill County native Jay Smar, sponsored by the Schuylkill County Visitors Bureau. Concerts are 6:30-8:00 this year, and continue on Thursdays throughout the summer.

This year’s organizers, Tony Odorizzi and Buddy Musselman, are presenting a lineup of varied styles. “We’ve got traditional folk with Jay Smar to rockabilly with the Big & Bad Rockabilly Cats to blues, rock, jam, and oldies in the schedule. There’s something for everyone,” says organizer Tony Odorizzi.

Audience members are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket, or plan to dine on the patio of the Tamaqua Station Restaurant. Reservations are recommended for the restaurant as the patio seating fills up quickly. Concerts are weather permitting.

“We will again have chair massages this season being offered by Mary Vignone, and 50/50 raffles that can pay for your dinner if you’re one of the lucky ones,” Vanessa Gerhard, Chamber administrative assistant.

There are 2 available Thursdays in August for anyone wishing to sponsor a concert. Please contact the Chamber office at 570.668.1880 or for more information.

For the full concert schedule, go to or follow the Tamaqua Area Chamber of Commerce on Facebook. Printed schedules are also available at the Visitors Center in the lobby of the train station or at the Chamber office at 37 W Broad St.
