Remaining in the Groove
August 2008 | by Bill Michalsky


Two down and two to go and this isn't about the races. We're talking music. We are half way through the Summer Twilight Concert season at Powerhouse Park . No green flashes to report yet, but good music for sure. The series opened with Atomic Groove in June; what a dance band they are; they had many of you up front and moving to their tunes. And then in July we had Midnight Ramblers and their tribute to the Rolling Stones; the park was full and Del Martian Bob Hughes and group had all in a major dance mode.


Any of you who rocked with the sounds of Crosby , Stills, Nash and Young will want to be at the park on August 19, at 7 pm. This will bring Cactus Twang and Whyte, with Grano and Nash and special guest Eve Selis presenting Back to the Garden, a CSN&Y retrospective. They have performed at Anthology and delivered a great rendition. On September 21, at 5 pm, we will welcome Soul Seduction, another great local dance band that will rev us up to close out summer.


For 25 years the Del Mar Foundation has presented the Summer Twilight Concert series; this year with support of the County of San Diego, Office of Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and local eateries including El Pollo Loco, Poseidon on the Beach, Epazote Oceanview Steakhouse and Pacifica Del Mar . We say thanks and please give them your support.



It's always good to see the locals. Come early with your family and friends, your picnic gear and grab a good spot to see and hear our next two concerts. Wine and beer are OK in the park at these events only. Please be responsible. It has been great to see everyone have a good evening at Powerhouse Park this summer. Let the music play on.
