FRIENDS OF WATERFRONT SEATTLE BRINGS BACK ICONIC PIER 62
CONCERTS WITH PIER SOUNDS CONCERT SERIES
SEATTLE (September 30, 2021) — Friends of Waterfront Seattle (Friends) will host the first annual Pier Sounds concert series at Pier 62 on the downtown Seattle waterfront on Saturdays. These free concerts take inspiration from the Summer Nights at the Pier concerts of the 90s and early 00s, which built a lasting relationship between live music and Seattle’s waterfront that persists in the minds and imaginations of Seattleites today. The Pier Sounds concert series will bring new energy and music on a revitalized Pier 62 to reignite the sense of celebration and community in one of Seattle’s most unique and iconic public spaces.
The October concert series features regional bands and artists including The Black Tones, D’Vonne Lewis and Friendz presented by Earshot Jazz Festival, Lady A, Tiffany Wilson as well as many up-and-coming local bands. The free and family-friendly concerts will welcome everyone to come and enjoy live music, offerings from local food trucks, a beer garden, and the sights and sounds of Seattle’s waterfront.
Friends’ Executive Director Thatcher Bailey said, “We are excited to bring live concerts to the waterfront, and honored to partner with local artists and organizations in the process. Pier 62 is a stunning setting for sensational music, a place for community to come together and feel part of the vibrant Northwest music scene.”
Pier Sounds concert series run the first three Saturdays in October 1p.m. – 4p.m.
October 2: The Black Tones
October 9: Earshot Jazz Festival presents D’Vonne Lewis and Friendz

Friends of Waterfront Seattle (“Friends”) is the nonprofit partner to the City of Seattle responsible for helping to fund, build, steward, and program the park — today and into the future. In deep collaboration with individuals, communities, and institutional partners, Friends’ mission is creating, caring for, and activating a renewed place on Seattle’s central shoreline to connect — to the water, to the mountains, to our city, and to one another. In addition to raising $110M by 2024 to fund park construction, Friends will provide funding and manage the programming and operations of the future Waterfront Park through a joint-delivery partnership with Seattle Parks & Recreation. Park construction has begun following the Viaduct’s removal and the first piece of the park — Pier 62 — is now open. Visit waterfrontparkseattle.org for details.
