Music in the Park returns to Danville

33rd annual concert series will showcase four Bay Area bands

Danville’s popular summer concert series "Music in the Park" will be returning for its 33rd year, with a wide variety of musical entertainment, all performed outdoors so audience members can enjoy the town’s cool summer nights.

Four bands will perform for the series, offering residents free musical entertainment with sounds ranging from classic rock to R&B and funk. Town organizers recommend that interested residents bring towels, blankets and chairs for more comfortable seating.

Opening night is June 23 and will feature The Big Jangle at Oak Hill Park, 3005 Stone Valley Rd. The Big Jangle is a Bay Area cover band dedicated to playing all things Tom Petty, so the concert will not only perform classics from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, but also his favorite live covers of The Traveling Wilburys, The Byrds and Stevie Nicks.

Stealin’ Chicago will perform two weekends later on July 7, also at Oak Hill Park. A tribute band with the mission of recreating the music recorded by Terry Kath, Robert Lamm and Peter Cetera. Their sound incorporates strong uses of melodic horn lines with the sounds of Chicago. Stealin’ Chicago band members also perform in a tribute band for Steely Dan.

The last show at Oak Hill Park will be performed on July 21 by A Touch of Class, who have been playing in the Bay Area and Tahoe since 1984. This funk, oldies and standards band features combined vocal harmonies, a heavy horn section and choreography to create a high energy show. A Touch of Class has a unique and diverse set list that includes music by Alicia Keys, Santana, the Temptations and Bruno Mars.

The concert series will close with a finale on Aug. 11, at the Town Green, 420 Front St., with a performance by The Fog City Swampers. The all-around classic rock tribute band will perform the most popular songs by artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash and more.

A selection of food trucks, provided by Food Truck Mafia, will be available for audience members who attend the concerts at Oak Hill Park. Concertgoers who attend the Town Green performance are invited to eat in downtown Danville.

All these Saturday concerts are free and will be performed from 6-8 p.m.
