Free Evening Concerts each Thursday with Great Tribute Bands!

The City of Palm Desert will once again play host to a series of free, weekly concerts at the Palm Desert Civic Center Park amphitheater throughout the month of October. Featuring a variety of talented musical acts designed to please music lovers of all ages and tastes, the concerts will be held every Thursday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be free parking, food trucks, and more.

The entertainment kicks off on Thursday, October 6, with a performance by the award-winning We Belong, a tribute to Pat Benatar and her husband and lead guitarist Neil Giraldo. Going together in 1979 this is a wonderful tribute to a legendary music couple that continue to pack venues to this day. We Belong spans the decades taking the audience on a journey throughout Pat and Neil’s entire career.

The series continues on Thursday, October 13,, with a performance by the extremely talented Blue Breeze Band, a multi-talented collection of professional musicians who have played alongside rock icons including Teena Marie, Evelyn Champagne King, the Brothers Johnson, L.T.D., The Temptations, Lakeside and Edgar Winter. This popular band delivers it all – Motown, R&B, soul, funk, and dance – with rich harmonies, and phenomenal rhythm and horn sections.

On Thursday, October 20, The Dreamboats will bring back vintage rock n’ roll to the concert line-up. They are known for their high-energy performance evocative of the Chuck Berry and The Wonders era. This quartet of Canadian musicians delivers an exciting show that has audiences dancing.


The Fall Concert Series closes out on Thursday, October 27, with a show by the Pop Rebels Band, the ultimate variety band featuring a range of genres from rock n’ roll, Latin, R&B, and dance music from the 60s to today. They will be highlighting hits from the 70s to kick off the City of Palm Desert’s 50th Anniversary and the release of the new City Calendar.

While the music is the main draw, food and beverage trucks will be available each concert evening offering a variety of culinary offerings an hour before the concerts. Concert-goers may also bring picnic baskets along with blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the shows. Alcoholic beverages and smoking are prohibited at Civic Center Park.

Palm Desert Civic Center Park is located in Downtown Palm Desert, on the northeast corner of San Pablo Avenue and Fred Waring Drive. For more information on the Fall Concert Series and all events in Palm Desert, visit, call (760) 568-1441, or visit the @VisitPalmDesert page on Facebook & Instagram.
