Atomic Groove, Y3K in Carmel Valley’s Summer Serenades lineup from July 12-Aug. 2


The Carmel Valley Recreation Council and Pardee Homes announces its Summer Serenades 2015 concert series lineup.

This will be the council’s 23rd year hosting the free summer concert series, which runs from 5-7 p.m. Sundays in the amphitheater at the Carmel Valley Rec Center, at 3777 Townsgate Drive, San Diego.

Bring the whole family for a night of live music and fun. Don’t forget your picnic baskets and dancing shoes!

“This year we have an exciting schedule with several local favorites and one new band that will be appearing in our lineup,” said Sharon Fornaciari, event organizer. “Our concert series has something for everyone, from oldies rock and roll to the best of the ’80s and ’90s, the smooth sound of reggae music, and a little country western.”

The shows begin July 12 with Atomic Groove, which will be making its sixth appearance in the concert series. If you are looking for energetic dance music for the whole family, this is the concert for you.

Next in the lineup on July 19 is the Clay Colton Band — back for a second appearance in Carmel Valley. The CCB plays contemporary country rock music with some Irish sounds mixed in.

On July 26 is Y3K, new to the concert lineup. Y3K means “Year 3000.” They are a modern band specializing in familiar and fun live dance hits from the ’80s, ’90s and today.

For the final concert on Aug. 2, Upstream returns with smooth reggae sounds. Performing with them will be the Caribbean Gems, a Calypso dance group.
