First thing that comes to mind is Hyannis and the Cape Cod Melody Tent. However, I suggest you search the links on the left to get some ideas. When you narrow down your parameters regarding the accommodations i.e. budget, things you are interested in doing in addition to music, TAS may be better able to assist you.

I would stay at the Seacoast Inn in Hyannis and see what is going on at the Cape Cod Melody Tent.

Check out the site capecodmusic.com for more information for different events. The Melody tent has a line but they are generally the same that appear at the South Shore tent. -so maybe this is not what you want? Other ideas would include checking out the chamber of commerce for each area to see the types of events - many have band concerts or CapeCodonline

Two other ideas - The Old Sea Pines in Brewster has a musical review each Sunday through late august - you can check out the website. Dinner and the show is included.

Also - There are boat trips on Cape Cod Canal that have some choices for band and dixieland.

Many clubs in the Hyannis also have entertainment

There may be a musical playing at the Dennis Playhouse or at Monomoy theater . ALso Patsy Cline may be playing at Harwich Junior Theater.

If you stay at Hyannis the Seacoast is a good choice - but no pool

but if you are more interested in the others maybe the mid cape would be a good choice

In Falmouth you can stay at one of the B7B's along the Village Green) The Palmer House Inn is great) and visit Liam Maquire's Irish Pub for live music. Also, check out Grumpy's for blues. Throughout the town there are nightclubs with live bands such as British Beer Co. and the Beach House. On Main Street Friday evenings there are concerts at the park and Thursday nights at the marina.

There is a funky, folks/blues coffee house in Eastham called the First Encounter Coffee House, located on Samoset Road. I am not sure if they have entertainment on the weekend you will be visiting but you might keep it in mind. We went to a Vance Gilbert concert there last year and had a wonderful visit. Check them out at www.firstencounter.org

As for accommodations, we always stay at the Fort Hill Bed and Breakfast, www.forthillbedandbreakfast.com in the National Seashore Park. We love the quiet, private suites and cottage and appreciate being able to get up, walk out the door to walking trails and ocean views. For more information about the Fort Hill Area and National Park see www.nps.gov/caco

If you prefer a large hotel experience, there is a Four Points Sheraton in Eastham, on Route 6 and many motels along the highway. For all Eastham lodging see www.easthamchamber.com If you decide to stay on the outer cape in Eastham, you will find that you are close to both Provincetown, Wellfleet and Chatham (for day-trips and more entertainment) and have your choice of fabulous ocean and bay beaches. I'm sending along a link to a recent Boston Globe article that might give you some additional information about Eastham. boston.com/travel/…

Falmouth is a great little town and the historic district is gorgeous. Palmer House Inn is a favorite of friends' and the innkeepers are wonderful. There aren't any photos of The Palmer House Inn on Trip Advisor; you can check out their website here:
