Each summer for the last several years, Avalon Harbor has echoed with the toe-tappin’, singalong, gotta-get-up-and-dance sounds of the Xceptional Catalina Summer Concert Series. With nearly a dozen concerts scattered through the summer, the series brings together families for dancing in the streets to the sounds of both tribute bands and original musicians.
With an array of talented musicians, Xceptional Music Company is now bringing a new concert series to Descanso Beach on Catalina Island. The Castaway Catalina Island Concerts will bring a series of three tribute concerts to Avalon’s popular Descanso Beach. With swaying palm trees, food and cocktail service on the sand and the soothing susurrus of the sea, Descanso Beach is one of the most popular destinations on the island and the Castaway Catalina Island Concerts will be an irresistible Catalina live music addition.
The first concert takes the stage on July 31 and will bring the Red Not Chili Peppers, a tribute band to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. On August 14, Zac, Jack and the Jimmys will honor Zac Brown Band, Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews Band and Jimmy Buffet. And on August 28, Mick Adams and the Stones are one of the country’s top Rolling Stones tribute bands. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. and tickets are available here.
