This Friday, Gunsmoke, a homegrown band is set to perform at the Grove Street Plaza at 6 p.m. as part of the Darien Summer Nights concert series.
Gunsmoke has been playing for many different audiences for over 25 years, including two sitting presidents of the United States and the world famous Ernest Tubb’s Midnight Jamboree in Nashville, following the Grand Ole Opry.
With six recorded albums under their belt, Gunsmoke was inducted into the Connecticut Country Music Hall of Fame, and was elected band of the year six years in a row by the New York Metro Country Music Association.

The band was created by Nick DeMaio Jr. and his younger brother Jeff, and for many years they were joined by their father, Nick Sr. The band continues to welcome younger family members into the band, with Christina Mae and Nick DeMaio III joining the tradition.
The family affair is joined by lead guitarist Van Mankas and expert fiddler Fooch Fischetti.
Baywater Properties, Grove Street Plaza and the Darien Chamber of Commerce encourage residents to come out this summer to Darien Summer Nights.
See you Friday – and remember to shop local!
