The free Galveston Beach Band’s weekly concerts at 7:30 p.m. at the Sealy Pavilion behind Ashton Villa in Galveston have been a summer tradition on the island for more than 80 years.

The band, led by Frank Incaprera, plays a variety of music from show tunes, big band numbers, patriotic marches and jazz.

This week, the band also will perform a special Independence Day concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The band will perform the concerts weekly through Aug. 12, weather permitting.
