Palm Desert Concerts in the Park presents The Dreamboats

Palm Desert's Civic Center Park Amphitheater is once again the hot spot for live music in October! Residents and visitors alike flock to the Palm Desert Civic Center Park every Thursday evening in October for the City's free Concerts in the Park. Held on the terraced lawn of the Civic Center Park Amphitheater, music lovers can look forward to diverse musical offerings from reggae to R&B, country to indie and more. This week's featured band is The Dreamboats (Vintage Rock n' Roll).

"The Dreamboats are bringing back good ol’ fashioned Rock n’ Roll! With a sound that is equal parts Chuck Berry & The Wonders, this quartet of handsome young Mississauga boys delivers a high energy, nostalgic show that has audiences dancing and singing the night away! 

What brings these four youngsters together to play music that was much before their time? A true passion for an era when ice cream cost a quarter, milk was delivered to the door, and people danced to live music! The Dreamboats capture this era at live shows through their angelic harmonies, rockin’ guitars, matching uniforms, and contagious dance steps!" 

Concertgoers are encouraged to bring picnic baskets, blankets, and lawn chairs. Food trucks will be onsite with tasty food, drinks and snacks for purchase. Alcoholic beverages and smoking are prohibited.
