Four bands booked for Camarillo’s summer concert series

Audiences don’t have to travel too far this summer to get their fill of live music.

The Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District will kick off its annual free summer concert series at Constitution Park in Camarillo on Saturday.

“Having different varieties of music and being able to hang out is definitely a summer staple,” said Briana Ramos, Recreation Specialist for the Park District.

The tribe band will be the headliner of the first of the four concerts on Saturday with a number of successful wonders. The Los Angeles-based band is made up of session and touring musicians and singers.

On July 16, Rod Stewart’s cover band Forever Rod will play hit after hit from the English singer best known for his raspy voice and flamboyant outfits.

Twisted Gypsy, a Fleetwood Mac tribute band, will take the stage on August 6, using Rock ‘n Roll to take audiences back to the 1970s.

To complete the series of concerts, Country Nation will perform a number of original and covered country songs.

“I am really excited to start summer and see the participation (from the public),” said Ramos. “We have some really cool lineup.”

At each concert, approximately three food trucks will sell a variety of cuisines and desserts. Local organizations and agencies, including the City of Camarillo, will also set up booths to inform the public of their recent activities.

The Park District is looking for volunteers to install and eliminate the event and help staff with each concert. Ramos said she needs about 10 volunteers at each event.

To volunteer, call Kaleen Gage at 805-482-1996 ext. 117.
