A new outdoor concert series will bring country, rock, mariachi and more to the Hunters Point waterfront next month.

Called “LIC Landing Live,” the series will run on Fridays in September from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Performers will play on the boardwalk next to LIC Landing, against the waterfront and Manhattan Skyline.

“LIC Landing Live” is presented by the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy, Nest Seekers, Food Cellar and Kitchen Plus More, according to a release from the HPPC.

The series kicks off on Sept. 4 with Mariachi Flor de Toloache, an all-female mariachi band. The Regina Bonelli Blues Experience will follow on Sept. 11 with blues and soul tunes. Sept. 18 will bring country rock, with the Astoria-based band 2/3 Goat. The series closes on Sept. 25 with Matthew Kiss, a Rockaway-native whose genre spans rock, blues and soul.

“I have had the good fortune to be entertained by the bands we have booked and I know our community will enjoy their music as well,” HPPC President Rob Basch said in a statement. “I am particularly pleased about the diversity of the music as we have everything from mariachi to country with a little blues and rock thrown in too.”

This new concert series will coincide with the end of LIC Concerts, an annual outdoor music series at Gantry Plaza State Park.

Soprano singer Stefanie Izzo will perform LIC Concerts’ last scheduled event on Sept. 6 at 5:30 p.m.

September 11th will be a fun show by the Regina Bonelli Blues Experience. I have seen them many times and it’s great original blues music mixes with blues and soul favorites.
