SPA RESORT CASINO’S “CONCERTS UNDER THE PALMS” OUTDOOR LIVE MUSIC SERIES CONTINUES on MARCH 18 at 8pm
Spa Resort Casino presents Concerts Under the Palms, a series of outdoor music concerts in a unique setting with bar garden at the corner of Indian Canyon and E. Andreas Road. The series kicked off on January 16 and continues through April 9, 2016.
Surrounded by a grove of skirted palms under a starry night sky, a stage, lights, sound system and seating are placed in perfect harmony, creating a unique al fresco venue poised to present some of the most memorable music of the last half-century.
“We’ve designed this series to appeal to the music lover in everyone,” Spa Resort Casino Assistant General Manager Kari Stout-Smith says, “and we’re excited to offer premium seating options in the venue along with a stellar line up of performers.”
Reserved seating is available at some concerts with tiered pricing. Seating is first-come, first-served for other concerts in the series at which the public is invited to attend for free. The venue will also feature a bar garden at each of the six concerts in the series.
“Proud Mary,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Down on the Corner” – a sampling of the chart-topping hits by Creedence Clearwater Revival that helped form the foundation of roots and blues rock – a Southern Rock sound formed amidst the San Francisco Bay Area origins of the bands’ members. Creedence Clearwater Revisited came together in 1995 with original Creedence Clearwater Revival band-mates Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford and continues to infuse these timeless sounds with impeccable precision. Experience Creedence Clearwater Revisited live under the palms on March 18 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $40-50.
Tesla, a rock powerhouse with roots also formed in California, helped set the metal tone for the 1980’s with their rock ballad, “Love Song.” Their “Five Man Accoustic Jam” album fired up the 90s with acoustic renditions of favorites like “Comin’ Atcha Live” and “Modern Day Cowboy.” After a late-nineties hiatus, Tesla roared into the new century with a string of Billboard-charting albums including “Into the Now” and “Forever More,” which was released on their own label, Tesla Electric Company Recordings. Tesla brings their rock power to downtown Palm Springs with a performance on March 26, 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35-45.
Concerts Under the Palms wraps for the season on April 9 with the sonic sounds of Sugar Ray. With a meld of metal, punk and hip-hop and chart-topping songs like “Fly,” “Every Morning,” and “Someday” showcasing their chops, Sugar Ray, with popular front-man Mark McGrath (you might remember him as an Extra co-host or as the new host of Killer Karaoke), hits the outdoor stage at 7:30 p.m. This concert is free. Seating is first-come, first-served.
