DAIRIEN — Darien’s favorite hometown band — Gunsmoke — brought its western style to play at the Grove Street Plaza’s Darien Summer Nights concert series on Aug. 4.

People packed into the plaza to enjoy the sounds of the family band, led by Nick DeMaio, along with his son, Nick Jr., on drums, brother Jeff on steel guitar, and close friend Van Manakas on guitar.

“We don’t often play here in town,” Nick DeMaio said, “so it’s good to be here.”
