Summer nights, hot music return to CSUSB in July with Summer Wednesdays

     

Laying on the cool grass on a warm summer night and listening to good music is a perfect night for most everyone.

Wednesday Summer Concert 2009 Lower Commons, Music, The Latin Society

The Summer Wednesdays concert series returns to Cal State San Bernardino beginning July 3. Concerts, and parking, are free at the university.

Cal State San Bernardino will provide at least the cool grass and good music (weather is so unpredictable) when it will host its annual free Summer Wednesdays concert series for five consecutive weeks in July.

Summer Wednesdays opens July 3 with The Latin Society.  The group has been well known in the Inland Empire and Southern California for 37 years. The Latin Society keeps its music upbeat with rhythmic melodies.

The Best of Everything is known for expertly performing a variety of genres. On July 10, the group will perform some of its hit songs such as “Night Train” and “Sway.”

Powerflex 5 is a psychobilly, ska and punk surf band.  Playing upbeat tunes, Powerflex 5 will perform on July 17. The group describes its sound as “Electric Gumbo.” Powerflex 5 will also release a new CD soon.

Desperado, a tribute band that covers the music of the Eagles, is said to be an almost exact replica of the band.  The group’s performances will consist of Eagles hits, including “Hotel California and many others.”

On July 31, the Coyote Radio Best of the Bands contest winner and runner up will close Summer Wednesdays.

CSUSB’s Summer Wednesdays concerts begin at 7 p.m.

Parking for Summer Wednesdays is free in parking lot D and concert-goers are encouraged to bring a picnic basket, lawn chairs and be prepared for a good time.  The concerts take place outside CSUSB’s Lower Commons. There will be concession stands as well.
