Port Angeles: Tongue and Groove take the stage tonight at City Pier

PORT ANGELES — Tongue and Groove is the featured band at the free Concert at the Pier tonight.

One of the most popular groups on the North Olympic Peninsula, Tongue and Groove will perform from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at City Pier.

Arrive early for one of the limited number of chairs available, or bring a lawn chair or blanket.

There’s plenty of surrounding parking, or walk from the downtown farmers market.

Tap your toes — or get up and dance.

Tongue and Groove’s original tunes run the gamut from traditional bluegrass to electric funk.

This is an all-ages, family event.

Band members are Jason Mogi and Kim Trenerry Mogi, vocals and guitar; Michael “Ches” Cheshire, bass; Victoria McDonald, percussion and vocals; Sean McDonald, drums.

The outdoor summer Concert at the Pier is every Wednesday night through Sept. 15.

The concerts are sponsored by Peninsula Daily News and KeyBank.

Co-sponsors are the Port Angeles Parks and Recreation Department and Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce.

Olympic Raft and Kayak is an additional sponsor for Tongue and Groove.

Farmers market

Organizers recommend getting to the pier by 5:45 p.m. to claim one of the chairs provided by city Parks and Recreation.

There is also plenty of space for a blanket or a lawn chair on the apron in front of the stage.
