Fly girls on stage and a rockin twilight concert on the beach: Now that’s the way to kick off summer! Atomic Groove, famous for its crowd-pleasing dance tunes and go-go booted backup dancers, wowed at the first in the series of Del Mar beach concerts this summer.

For many locals, this annual Del Mar Foundation event marks the true start of the Del Mar summer. As resident Donna Shaw says, “It brings the community together: Where everyone of every age has fun!”

For Sanuk’s Jeff Kelley, “It’s a chance to see good friends, listen to good music, and share stories you can’t repeat!” With waves crashing in the background, over 2,500 grooved to the atomic beat, picnicked with their families and friends, and watched the sun go down, all for free, thanks to the support of June concert sponsors, Jake’s and Rusty Del Mar. Supporters also included Joe Harper and the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, and Del Mar Head Lifeguard Pat Vergne and his community services. But it’s not all work for him. As Vergne puts it: “It’s a lotta fun with everyone having a good time. And the fly girls are hot!” The next concert on July 19 showcases the classic tunes of Rockola.
