TGIF 9: The Detroit Underground

by The Editors on August 16, 2016

The Detroit Underground, is not new to Carlsbad’s TGIF Concerts In The Parks, and those who saw them last year appreciated their solid and funky rhythm section and powerful lead vocalists who crank out tunes from artists such as Stevie WonderChaka Kahn, and Earth, Wind and Fire. And they’ll be doing exactly that this Friday evening (August 19, 2016) in Alga Norte Community Park as TGIF Concerts In The Parks closes out the 2016 season.

The Detroit Underground was established in 1994, and still has several of its original members. Over the years the band has earned the reputation for being a hard working, high energy, show band. The group features a very solid and funky rhythm section. These four seasoned players provide a solid foundation for the band’s “smokin” horns.

Remember to bring low-back chairs, snacks, and a groove ready mind. Show starts at 6 PM. Calavera Hills Park, is located at 2997 Glasgow Dr. at the corner of Carlsbad Village Drive. Shuttle service operates between 4:30 and 9 p.m. from Sage Creek High School (3900 Cannon Road).

TGIF 2: The Dustbowl Revival

by The Editors on June 28, 2016

Carlsbad’s 2016 TGIF Concerts In The Park series has one the best lineups ever, but the hippest, brightest, raddest highlight of the summer is going down this Friday night (July 1, 2016) as The Dustbowl Revival lights up Stagecoach park with their bluegrass, hot jazz, pre-war, American roots orchestra.

Here’s how the LA Times describes the band:

A nine-piece band replete with tuba, washboard, accordion, fiddle, mandolin, trumpet and guitar joyously pumped out early 20th century standards and original tunes that would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans’ French Quarter. “

We usually say this once a summer, but here it is: if you only go to one TGIF Concert In The Park make it The Dustbowl Revival.  You will be glad you did. Music starts at 6 PM. Remember to bring low-back chairs, snacks, and feet ready to move. Stagecoach Community Park is located at 3420 Camino de los Coches, Carlsbad, California.
