Celebrate summer in San Ramon with live music in .
The City of San Ramon's annual summer concert series takes place Sunday evenings in July. So pack a picnic, bring some lawnchairs and cash for the wine, beer, soda and ice-cream for sale at the park.
Time for some music under the summer skies. Here's the lineup, with descriptions courtesy of the city Parks and Community Services Department:
July 10 – Double Funk Crunch: One of the Bay Area’s premiere party bands, Double Funk Crunch is a high-spirited nine-piece group of funksters playing authentic reproductions of the hits from the '70s, '80s and popular tunes of today. Their lively sets include audience participation, funky costumes, a live horn section and plenty of non-stop dancing.
July 17 – California Beach Party: Beach Party is a six-piece blast from the past band that plays music from the early '60s, like the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, the Ventures, the Surfaris, Dick Dale, and more. They mix in lots of surf humor and Summertime favorites including Soak Up the Sun, Hot Hot Hot, the Twist and Kokomo.
July 24 – Divas of the Decade: From Joan Jett to Madonna to Heart this tribute act will rock your world. Everyone will be entertained when they see and hear the lead vocalists backed by a six piece band transform themselves into over 25 rock divas including icons like Madonna, Linda Ronstadt, Blondie, Pat Benatar, Heart and Gwen Stefani.
July 31 – Pride & Joy: Back by popular demand, Pride & Joy has remained the most popular band on the Bay Area music scene. This group is the Pride of the Bay Area and a Joy to anyone who loves to dance. They have achieved this by presenting the most timeless pop/soul music of our time in an electrifying high-style show that pulls the audience directly into the heart of their performance.
