The Town of Orange may be small in population, but over the years it has gained the reputation for bringing in top-notch bands and one of the best holiday fireworks displays in the New Haven County.

For this year’s Independence Day Concert, the Orange Town News, which is once again producing the event, presents “Back in Time – A Tribute to Huey Lewis and the News” to perform prior to the town’s Annual Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular.

The Independence Day Concert will take place on Friday, July 5 (rain date Saturday, July 6) at the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road, Orange.

The festivities will begin promptly at 6:30 pm with welcoming comments from Orange First Selectman Jim Zeoli. The concert will be followed promptly at 9:30 pm by the Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular with Patriotic Music.

Producer Rocky Salperto said, “We are looking forward to another premiere event for area residents to enjoy. We are excited about producing this show for the eighth consecutive year. We hope everyone continues to enjoy this great community event. Many thanks go out to our sponsors, our first selectman and town officials for their continued support.”

The event is made possible through area sponsors including major sponsors: Cohen and Wolf, P.C.; Yale University, The Orange Foundation’s Olga Fund, the Orange Town News and the Town of Orange.

Popular Food Trucks are being lined up, and novelty items will be available for purchase at the fairgrounds beginning at 6:00 pm. A WPLR radio personality will be on location. Come early and get a good seat. Admission is free.

There will be a suggested parking donation of $5 that will benefit the Orange Little League.

Making their CT debut, “BACK IN TIME” is comprised of talented and seasoned musicians from the New York area. “BACK IN TIME” works to recreate the energy, excitement of a Huey Lewis and the News Live Performance. We guarantee you’ll be singing along with every song as we take you on a trip through the 80’s.

Huey Lewis and The News have carried the banner as the quintessential American rock band, endearing them to millions of fans.
