Former New York Yankee Bernie Williams rocked the Cross County Center in Yonkers Monday night.
Williams, an Armonk resident, kicked off the center’s Summer Concert Series with a performance that included his All Star Band. The show had been rescheduled because of last week’s rain.
Williams and his band performed smooth Latin Jazz rhythms.
“I am thrilled to be returning to Ridge Hill’s Summer Concert Series,” said Williams before the show. “We had a great turnout last year, and my band and I are very much looking forward to playing again for our neighbors here in Westchester.”
The other concerts at Cross County this summer are:
