Concert in the park music ranges from rock to jazz
The city will launch its Monday Night Concerts in the Park series, co-sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Claremont, on July 7. The free weekly events regularly lure 3,000 to 5,000 people to Memorial Park.
Although the concert officially runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m., concertgoers begin arriving as early as 6 p.m. to select a space and enjoy dinner in the park. You can bring a picnic or purchase a variety of treats from The Kiwanis Club snack bar, which features concessions like burgers, hot dogs, nachos, drinks, popcorn and frozen yogurt donated by 21 Choices.
This year’s lineup features a number of perennial favorites, so you may want to mark your calendar. The schedule is as follows: The Ravelers (classic rock) on July 7; The Silverados (country) on July 14; Cold Duck (‘70s) on July 21; Kulayd (Doo-Wop/Motown) on July 28; Upstream (Reggae) on August 4; LCR (classic rock) on August 11; Boxcar 7 (blues/soul/R&B) on August 18; Night Blooming Jazzmen (Dixieland jazz) on August 25; and The Answer (classic rock) on September 1.
