This Sunday, July 1, will be the second of five concerts in the Summer Serenades concerts series hosted by the Carmel Valley Recreation Council. After an incredible kickoff with Atomic Groove last Sunday, this concert features the band Left4Dead, a seven-member rock band that plays “crowd pleasing, generation spanning danceable rock and roll.” The concert will be at Solana Highlands Neighborhood Park (3520 Longrun Drive, San Diego, 92130) and goes from 5-7 p.m.
San Diego crowds have been entertained by the music of Left4Dead since 1999. The band plays a variety of music, from Elvis to The Stones to The Doors to Van Morrison, sprinkled with contemporary songs from The Red Hot Chili Peppers to The Black keys. They have played with the likes of Chris Isaac, Tommy Castro, John Hiatt, and Jason Mraz. Their music is classy and fun with a well-blended sound, great vocalists and a repertoire that is classic but not clichéd.
The band members are all serious professional musicians, but they hold down real-life “day jobs” in a variety of interesting fields, including law, real estate investment, broadcasting, education and food distribution. They come together to play their music and create a high energy event that will have everyone dancing and having a great time.
The band’s “tongue in cheek” name derives from the famous Rolling Stones song, “Jumping Jack Flash” and its famous lyric line: “I was drowned, washed up and left for dead.” Since the band is anything but, when it comes to adding life, music and fun to your event, count on Left4Dead.
