Here’s a question: Where can you find top-notch live music, an amazing seaside setting, picnicking families, neighbors, and friends, all rocking out together on a grass-blanketed dance floor? And all for free! The answer: At the Del Mar Foundation’s Summer Twilight Concerts at Powerhouse Park.

It may all sound too good to be true, but that’s exactly what the Del Mar Foundation provides for the village of Del Mar every month of the summer. This brings the people of our community together and provides an opportunity for toddlers and teenagers to bop to the beat right alongside moms, dads, and grandparents.

As local resident Susie Lampe says, “Where else in the world could you have this setting with great live music, family and friends?”

The night provided an added bonus for Laura DeMarco. “ It’s one of the only places where my kids don’t mind being seen with me!”
With help from the Poseidon Restaurant, Joe Harper and the Del Mar Lifeguards, the Del Mar Foundation was able to bring premiere oldies band Rockola to the stage. Famous for their spot-on renditions of Beatles classics, they performed everything from Motown to pop to soul. Rockola is touted as having more tunes on hand than a well-stocked jukebox.

Whatever the genre, the crowd was certainly happy to be shaking their hips and getting their kicks in the Del Mar sunshine. And that makes the Del Mar Foundation very happy too.

The next concert will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 16, at 7 p.m., and will feature “Mrs. Robinson.” For details about upcoming concerts, visit www.delmarfoundation.org. Photos: Jon Clark
