Concerts in the Park – Every Saturday Morning in October 10:30 to noon
This free live music series returns to the Upper Noe playground on Saturday October 6 with an amazing line-up of talent.
10/06 - ♡ just Suzanne
10/13 - ♡ just Suzanne hosts Matt Jaffe
10/20 - ♡ just Suzanne hosts Donovan Plant
10/27 - ♡ just Suzanne hosts Delphi Freeman
Performances will be every 3rd Saturday each month starting in November:
November 17th - Essence Goldman
December 15th - Audio Blonde
This series has been on a lengthy hiatus but, always there was the thought of resuming. It just needed the right person to organize it. That person turned out to be Suzanne Kramer, a singer/songwriter who performs regularly in the Bay Area and beyond who is also a close neighbor to the Rec Center.
Suzanne performs as ♡ just Suzanne (www.just-Suzanne.com) and will begin the series on Saturday, October 6. She describes herself as indie pop with a jazz infusion. She recently headlined at Bird & Becket. Suzanne will start the show each Saturday and then introduce the guest act.
Concerts take place in the children's playground with performers positioned near the sandbox. Acts are not child-centric but are selected to be sophisticated family-friendly music that adults and children will enjoy. Do not expect to hear "Wheels on the bus go round and round". Do expect to be entertained by upbeat, quality performances that will brighten your day.
