Summer Concert Series

krf_moving_postcard-1Kids Rock Free® will host three major concerts at the Fender® Center this season, before we move into the Civic Center.

These concerts will sponsor free music lessons for kids. Indoor and outdoor concerts will not look the same after Kids Rock Free expands to the Civic Center and the City remodels the building into a Community Center.

“In the intimate Rhythm Lounge, audiences feel like they are a part of the concert surrounded by the cool rock ‘n roll décor. Outdoors the amphitheater is magical. Audiences shouldn’t miss one of the last chances to see a concert there,” said Gregg Hassler of Golden Crown Productions. At each concert there will be incentives to purchase tickets for the Laguna Beach Home raffle and silent auctions for Fender® Center memorabilia. Buy a raffle ticket for later, win a concert ticket now.

Acclaimed singer and songwriter Lukas Nelson and his band P.O.T.R. continue to make noteworthy musical contributions – together and separately. “We are so pleased to have the band return to support the Kids Rock Free® Music School,” said Pam Hogan, director. The Aug. 16th concert tickets are being sold at $25 for the concert only or $50 for a VIP ticket (includes wine at Meet & Greet with artist in the Fender® Museum & more). Doors open for VIP Reception at 6:30PM, for GA ticket holders at 7:30PM.

Casey Abrams’ story is that of a born natural, but it’s also the story of a person who studied diligently and worked extremely hard, striving toward his dream of a life in music. He was born in Austin, Texas to professionally accomplished, extraordinarily creative parents. Casey’s mother, Pamela Pierce, a screenwriter and teacher, also plays piano and sings. His father, Ira Abrams currently teaches at Idyllwild Arts Academy. The walls of Casey’s childhood home resonated with, “the music of the 1950s and ‘60s,” he states. Even then, he was “hearing those blues riffs and little things that make a song what it is.”
