DARIEN — Summer’s evening sun and the sounds of reggae music had Grove Street Plaza swaying and smiling Friday evening at the Darien Summer Nights free concert series.

“We played last year and we’re even more excited to be back,” said Jeff Mucciolo, of Darien, one of the leaders of the band CC Legend, which played Bob Marley hits and other reggae classics.

“It’s beautiful here,” he said. “The weather couldn’t be better and it’s just very scenic.”

“And the crowd is really responsive,” said Mucciolo, who plays drums. “Everyone has a great time and we enjoy it as much as the crowd, if not more.”

The concert series is produced by the Darien Chamber of Commerce, Baywater Properties and Grove Street Properties, along with various sponsors.
