Santanaways band photoCool tunes and cooler temperatures are coming to Palm Desert in October with the return of free Fall Concerts in the Park featuring live music under the stars every Thursday night of the month.

The excitement kicks off at the Civic Center Park Amphitheater at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 4, with a performance by SantanaWays.

Dubbed “the ultimate Santana tribute band,” SantanaWays pays homage to the music of Santana by emphasizing the heart and soul in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band’s extensive musical catalogue. With their electrifying Latin and blues rock, SantanaWays brings to life the rhythms and sounds of music that reaches across decades and generations.

On stage from 6 to 7:30 p.m. every Thursday in October, Palm Desert’s Fall Concerts will feature a variety of talented musical acts designed to please music lovers of all ages and tastes including: vintage rock ‘n’ roll from The Dreamboats (October 11), alternative folk from Twisted Pine (October 18), and hot jazz/western swing from Hot Club of Cowtown (October 25). The City extends its thanks to the Desert Recreation District for its support of this year’s Fall Concert Series.

The kick off of Fall Concerts also means the return of food trucks to Civic Center Park. Concertgoers are encouraged to sample the trucks’ mouthwatering mobile culinary creations or bring picnic baskets along with their blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy the shows. Alcoholic beverages and smoking are prohibited.

Civic Center Park is located on the northeast corner of San Pablo Avenue and Fred Waring Drive. For more information, please call 760-568-1441.
