The third concert in this series of six concerts was enjoyed by a large crowd in Seal Beach this evening.  The Regular Guys played with gusto – even inviting the event organizer to join them for the closing song of the first set.  I would guess that the crowd was larger tonight than for the earlier two concerts.

The chamber hasn’t announced any attendance that I’m aware of, but with the cool coastal breeze in the evening, it’s no wonder that folks enjoy the park setting, eating their meals while being entertained.  During the break (I never win raffles anyway), I walked across the street to Bogarts (one of the coffee houses in town).

I’m already looking forward to the remaining concerts in this year’s series.  Next week will be rockabilly and blues, then classic rock, then surf to conclude the series.

Seal Beach has been hosting summer series of music concerts annually for several years.  The 2008 free summer concert series will be weekly on Wednesday nights beginning July 23 at the Seal Beach pier.  The program begins at 6pm.

Here is the concert series lineup:

July 16 – Jonathan Blake – acoustic, alternative, and blues rock

July 23 – Kelly Fitzgerald Group – folk, blues, and rock

July 30 – The Regular Guys – rock

August 6 – Danny Dean and the Homewreckers – rockabilly and blues

August 13 – The Elm Street Band – classic rock

August 20 – The Eliminators – surf

These events are sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and are a nice way to spend an evening listening to music and being kissed by the breezes.  See you there!
