SUNDAY JULY 29

Headlining our first concert of the season is The Houserockers, one of the premier classic rock bands of the Central Coast.  This 10-member band with its huge horn-driven and foot-stomping sound (winner of “Best Cover Band in the Bay Area” and KFOX’s “Last Band Standing”) will return to Music at Skypark for the 9th time!  Opening for the third time will be The Johnny Neri Band, a four-piece high-energy “classic rock’n roll’n soul dance band”This will be a heck of a live show.

                                     

SUNDAY AUGUST 26

The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men return by very popular demand to headline this concert.  This accomplished band with local roots boasts an extensive repertoire of original rock and blues tunes with simple, honest lyrics backed by the brothers’ blend of folk, blues, R&B and rock.  Opening will be Music at Skypark newcomers The Elizabeth Carlisle Band, an amazing Swedish band in the middle of its “How Swede It Is 2018 Tour” of the Pacific Northwest, with hints of Pink, Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge wrapped into their own unique sound.  The energy will get you on your feet!

                                                 

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 30

Two of Music at Skypark’s most popular veteran bands headline the September concert:  The Joint Chiefs start things off with their totally danceable fusion of funk, acid jazz and classic R&B.  Extra Large follows with funky grooves rooted in blends of funk, blues, reggae riffs and Latin beats.  These bands have teamed up to produce Music at Skypark’s best-attended concerts in the past.  It just wouldn’t be Music at Skypark without these two headliners together again!
