As the summer heads into August, the music at the Investor Bank 2020 Hot Summer Nights Concert Series at the Village Green in Summit, NJ, is reaching a fever pitch.

The next two musical acts are a testament to the quality of musical acts playing at the Village Green (356 Broad Street) in Downtown Summit. 

First, on Tuesday, August 11th, at 7:00 p.m., Brian Kirk & the Jirks, a nine-piece interactive, high energy band, will be hitting the stage, bringing their cool brand of music to the Summit area. Brian Kirk and the Jirks play a variety of tunes from Led Zeppelin to Taylor Swift and everyone in between. 

With two decades behind their musically rocking experience, Brian Kirk and the Jirks played everywhere from New Jersey, New York CityPennsylvania, and Long Island. But the band has traveled around the world.  

If that isn’t good enough, on Tuesday, August 18th 7:00 p.m., New Jersey’s beloved group The Nerds will bring their hip dorkiness to Summit, playing a blend of Soul, Classic Rock, and TV themes. 

Yes, even I have always wanted to see The Nerds perform live, and now I will get my chance. 

Performing everywhere and anywhere, The Nerds, first known as AKA, has entertained thousands of crowds since 1985.

Additionally, they have been on The View about four times, The Carson Daly Show, and The Arsenio Hall Show, among others.
