ROCKPORT — The first concert in this summer’s Arts on the Hill music series brings the Electric Bonfire four-piece rock band to Beech Hill Preserve, 316 Beech Hill Road, at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 24.

Based out of Lincolnville, the band has been together since 2016 and plays mostly original songs and compositions steeped in the spirit of psychedelic jam rock, fusion, funk, reggae and Americana. The band is comprised of John Luft, guitar; Mitch Markowitz, guitar; Mike Whitehead, bass; and Jason Dean, drums.

Bring a picnic dinner, relax, and enjoy the music and the spectacular view. The evening promises to be a wonderful start to the summer series. All Arts on the Hill performances are free and open to all ages, but please leave dogs at home.
