NIGHTLIFE Big Band, a 16-piece swing band, plays the 7th concert of Tuesday Tunes on July 23 at 6:45 pm. Organized by the Livermore Cultural Arts Council (LCAC), this concert highlights music in the style of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Les Brown, and Benny Goodman. Led by band leader Bob Olness, the musicians in the band are talented amateurs who thrive on the music of the 40’s and 50’s.
Formed in 1974, NIGHTLIFE has played numerous public performances, including several Livermore Arts Festivals, plus concerts at the Alameda County Fair and other public and private events.
Each Tuesday through August 13, LCAC brings family-friendly free entertainment for the community to gather and enjoy on the Shea Homes Stage in front of the Bankhead Theater in downtown Livermore. Shea Homes is also the major sponsor of “Tuesday Tunes”. This eclectic 10-concert series is also made possible by funding from Heritage Bank, Tri-Valley Conservancy, Uncle Credit Union, Uncle Yu’s, and The Independent. Bring a blanket and a picnic dinner, or sit outside at one of the many restaurants surrounding the Plaza. Concert goers should heed City Municipal Codes curbing alcohol use in public areas.
Next up on July 30th, Audio Illusion will play classic rock, pop and blues from the 50’s and beyond. A full schedule and information about the bands can be found at the Livermore Cultural Arts Council’s website www.LCAC.org.
