Super Soul Saturday: A Party for the Decades this Saturday
Palmdale’s summer concert series continues this Saturday, July 30, with Super Soul Saturday: A Party for the Decades, featuring DJ Streak, Bump City and Stone Soul.
Tickets are available at www.palmdaleamphitheater.com and start at $8. A limited number of VIP tickets are also available. Gates open at 4 p.m. and the show will take place from 5 to 10 p.m.
Food, beer, wine and soft drinks will be available for purchase. Outside food, beverages and coolers are not allowed in the venue, however, each person may bring one factory-sealed bottle of water. Attendees should bring a blanket or lawn chair.
Regarded as one of the fastest DJs to scratch, DJ Streak travels and performs across the globe, from spinning in Las Vegas/NYC/Los Angeles, to delighting crowds of thousands in the Mid-West, Asia and the most extravagant paradise locations.
“Booty-shaking party music” best sums up Bump City. Rooted in improvisation, these all-star musicians, led by Drummer Tony Capko, have built an enthusiastic vibe on a long-standing musical tradition that dates back to the legends of funk, soul and blues.
Stone Soul’s spot-on renditions of timeless hits from legendary artists have brought them recognition as one of the best Classic Soul and Motown bands working today. They have been called upon to support Stevie Wonder, The O’Jays, Diana Ross and BB King.
Palmdale’s Summer Concert Series continues Aug. 6 with Get Jazzed at the Amp with The Herbie Kae & Tony Capko Band, Gina Eckstine and The Bill Fulton Band. The Commodores will perform Sept. 10. The LeAnn Rimes concert, which was canceled due to the Sand Fire, will be rescheduled.
