This is the 27th year for the free, outdoor concert series, held at Falls River Square from 5 p.m. to midnight on Fridays through Aug. 30.
The opening headliner is Zoso, billed as the ultimate Led Zeppelin experience.
Performing before Zoso is Joe Vitale, Jr., whose music is “a unique style of rock and technical,” according to the Rockin’ website.
Bands begin at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
Vitale’s father, Joe Vitale, is a veteran rock drummer who performed with the Eagles; Joe Walsh; Crosby, Stills and Nash; and Buffalo Springfield.
