Eagle Rock Concerts in the Park

What a great time my family and I had Sunday at the kickoff of Eagle Rock’s 11th Annual Concert in the Park Series. Held at Eagle Rock Rec Center, this concert series was co-sponsored by my office, the City’s Department of Recreation and Parks, and the Eagle Rock Chamber of Commerce (a big thanks to Michael Nogueira and Denise Miller!). Eagle Rock is another one of those great communities in Council District 14 with a small-town feel and you really capture that at these concerts. I would encourage you to take your families out there and enjoy some really great music and phenomenal food. I found myself (yet again) kicking off my shoes off and just enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, and the cool sounds of Ronny & The Classics. They played some great classics from the 50s and 60s, including some from Jim Morrison, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Carlos Santana.

Here’s the upcoming calendar for The Eagle Rock Concert series, which will be held at:

Eagle Rock Recreation Center
1100 Eagle Vista Drive
Eagle Rock, CA

All the concerts run from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. FYI, you can purchase food at the event or pack your own picnic. Call the center at (323) 257-6948 for more information.
