The opening night for Music in the Park in Depot Park in Peterborough is Friday, July 12, with the return of the Sugar Kings – a Boston-based quartet known for traditional Afro-Cuban tunes, rumba flamenca and salsa.

All concerts are free, and are from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

New this year on July 19 is the Club Soda Band. This four-piece band’s music includes pop, classic rock and country.

Back on July 26 is Brandy. This seven piece band captures the groove of styles that include jazz, Motown, rhythm-and-blues and rock. Singer Michelle Brooks-Thompson from “The Voice” will be the special guest.

Another return to the lineup performing on Aug. 2 is the Chris Fitz Band. This trio, led by singer, songwriter and guitar player Chris Fitz, offers an array of “blues jambalaya” styles. Steve Peabody on drums and Dave Kendarian on bass round out the group.

Performing on Aug. 9, after a long hiatus from the Depot Park stage, is the Tom Foolery Band. This nine-piece group ranges from Motown to ballads, from funk to jazz.

On Aug. 16 is the Paul Klemperer Band. Originally from Boston, Klemperer now lives in Austin, Texas, where he works as a bandleader, teacher, composer and writer.  He has been with the summer music series from the beginning, and his music features elements of jazz, rhythm-and-blues legends and his own compositions.

Closing the 12th year of the Music in the Park series on Aug. 23 is the returning Ball In the House. Based in Boston, this rhythm-and-blues/soul/pop a cappella group blends five voices.
