Civita will launch its fourth annual “Sundown Sunday” free concert series at the new outdoor amphitheater in Civita Park with CalPhonics on June 25. CalPhonics plays everything from big band sounds to songs from the 80s, 90s and today.
The public is invited to bring picnics, beach chairs and blankets to the park, which is located near of Civita Boulevard and Russell Park Way in Mission Valley. All concerts run from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.
On July 23 Elektric Voodoo takes the stage. The band blends rootsy, soulful rock-and-roll with elements of psychedelia, Afrobeat and Latin music.
The local dance band Pop Vinyl will perform August 20. The group’s playlist spans five decades of upbeat “club-hoppin” hits – everything from “Aretha to Beyonce, from Michael to Justin, Donna Summer to Madonna, Prince to Maroon 5 and the Beegee’s to Black-Eyed Peas.”
Siren’s Crush, a local seven-piece Top 40 dance band that plays covers by a wide variety of performers, ranging from Katy Perry to Earth, Wind & Fire, will make it’s third annual appearance at Sundown Sunday on Sept. 17.
