Monroe County Supervisors Association Presents: Community Independence Day Celebration with the Skycoasters

Sat, 07/04/2020 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

The Skycoasters

Local towns sponsor this virtual Fourth of July concert featuring the Skycoasters.

While July Fourth celebrations are largely being put on hold this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Monroe County Supervisors’ Association have joined forces to provide some familiar Independence Day entertainment. The group has sponsored a performance by The Skycoasters, which will air on WXXI-CREATE 21.3 (cable 1276) on Saturday, July 4 at 6 p.m. 

The Association, which is comprised of every Town in Monroe County, banded together to sponsor and produce the performance. A mainstay at local July Fourth celebrations, and one of the region’s most well-known performing acts, the Skycoasters pre-taped a show at the former Water Street Music Hall in downtown Rochester earlier in June.

The Town of Irondequoit and Town of Penfield’s media departments joined together to film the performance. The Town of Brighton, which traditionally hosts the band on July Fourth, helped facilitate the performance.

The Monroe County Supervisors’ Association is a consortium made up of the Supervisors from all 19 towns in Monroe County. The group generally meets monthly to discuss common issues, and has been communicating with one another on a frequent basis during the COVID-19, sharing information and best practices. Reserve funds from the Association were used to sponsor the concert.
