TGIF Aug. 21: The Glenn Miller Orchestra

by The Editors on August 17, 2015

What better way to close out the City of Carlsbad’s TGIF Concerts in the Parks than with the blue-hair waving sounds of The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra. Who is that? Well, maybe you should ask your grandmother (or great-grandmother?) and she’ll tell you that Glenn Miller’s Orchestra was the swingingest thing since the New York World’s Fair in 1939.

The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra is one of the most popular and sought after big bands in the world for both concert and swing dance engagements. The orchestra plays more than 300 live performances around the world each year and is pleased to close out the TGIF 2015 concert series.

We’re just hoping there will be more people in the audience than in the orchestra. Calavera Hills Community Park is located at 2997 Glasgow Drive, Carlsbad, California. If you don’t want to hassle with parking leave the car at Sage Creek High School and ride a shuttle. Shuttle service operates between 4:30 and 9 PM.

TGIF August 7: Louie Cruz Beltran

by The Editors on August 4, 2015

Get ready to feel the Afro-cuban beat and begin to move your feet as Louie Cruz Beltran returns to Carlsbad with his Latin/salsa rhythms to the City of Carlsbad’s TGIF Concert in the Parks on Friday evening (August 7, 2015) at Poinsettia Community Park.

Blending Afro Cuban rhythms with Jazz, Latin Jazz, Pop and R&B influences, Louie Cruz Beltran is an entertainer at heart – an entertainer who is also a superbly skilled conguero, timbalero and vocalist. In short, Louie is the complete package. . . Louie’s many loyal fans agree, making him a popular attraction at venues from intimate Jazz clubs to the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl. Variety called Louie’s Playboy Jazz Festival performance “… a triump… a sharp, uncluttered Jazz ensemble.”

Beltran delivered one of the best shows of last summer. Ask someone who was there. They’ll tell you that you definitely should not miss this one. Show starts at 6 PM. Poinsettia Community Park is located at 6600 Hidden Valley Road, in Carlsbad, California. And remember to make parking easier, park at North Coast Calvary Chapel and get a ride to the park in a shuttle.
