Summer Concert Series – BETAMAXX


August 25 – 5:00PM

Pac-Man, Thriller, the Berlin Wall, New Coke, The Breakfast Club, and the Cabbage Patch Doll — the 1980s were a time of political change, new technology, bad fashions, and some memorable pop music. Formed in 2009, BETAMAXX recreates and celebrates the sounds of that decade in a live musical experience.

BETAMAXX covers the whole range of 80’s music: the rock of Pat Benetar, the glossy pop of Journey, Michael Jackson’s funk, The Smith’s jangle, and the new wave of Depeche Mode. BETAMAXX knows what people love because they loved it when it first hit the charts. The versatility and high level of musicianship within the band allows BETAMAXX to play it all!


Summer Concert Series – Las Chikas

Las Chikas – August 18 6:00pm – Spreckels Park

Sponsored by Coronado Woman’s Club & Coronado Junior Woman’s Club

The all female band, Las Chikas is comprised of some of the most talented female musicians from Los Angeles. Salsa never looked so good when a melting pot of cultures, and ethnicity come together to give birth to a multicultural female band that sets the stage on fire!

Finding an all-woman salsa band is rare. Most salsa bands are comprised of all men with occasionally, a single woman. Las Chikas has grown and evolved over the past decade as women musicians, especially in Latin music, know each other and play in other bands, including other all-female bands.

The Las Chikas look at music as a way of bringing joy. Their repertoire is a mix of a little bit of everything you can dance to — salsa music, pop music, cumbia and bachata.
