Final Hot Summer Night of Concerts in Old Town Temecula


The last Friday of 2013’s Hot Summer Nights Series features several of the summer favorites.

Who’s Playing and Where:

At Baily’s Courtyard, the Fleetwood Mac tribute band Little Lies will headline the event.

One of the area’s most popular bands, Little Lies is comprised of several bands that have made their way around town – Deek and Long, the Laurie Richardson Trio and Hemispheres. Together the five-piece band packs huge sound with Lisa Jane Long, Andy Long, Jake Sale, Laurie Richardson and Mike Higbie. This concert runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m

On the Harmony Stage the “Two of Us Plus One/LeftCoast Willie” will make their final appearance of the summer in Old Town from 6 to 9 p.m.

The Two of Us Plus One specializes in classic rock tunes with an easy-listening approach. They played for years as the Two of Us, then added a bass player, to become “Plus One” and finally a drummer. Somewhere in the new band members, the original Two of Us found a Willie Nelson sound alike. Another band was born – LeftCoast Willie and Friends.

The Michael Chain Band returns to Sweet Lumpy’s from 6 to 9 p.m. Chain was the lead singer of the original Knack. With rock, R and B and country in his roots, Chain’s current band produces a powerful country rock sound and has performed at forward operating bases in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Bosnia.

As a songwriter Chain’s tunes have been been recorded by B.J. Thomas, Vicki Lawrence, Wayne Newton, John Davidson, Eric Anderson, the Mills Brothers and dozens of other artists. Chain’s arrangement of “Misty” for Ray Stevens won a Grammy. In Tinseltown, he has appeared in movies and TV and you’ve heard his voice as everything from the Transformers (Powerglide, Hoist, Red Alert) to the Chicken McNuggets.

Always popular and packed, is the Valley Winds at the Serendipity Parking Lot on Main Street. The Valley Winds attract an audience of swing dancers and big band fans with a playlist that runs from the Glen Miller era to the Brian Seltzer Orchestra. Enjoy their tunes from 6 to 9 p.m.

The owners of Serendipity will be beefing up the lighting so you can get hours of dance into this performance.

Where to Park:

Don’t worry about parking. The parking garage at 3rd Street and Mercedes next to city hall has plenty of spaces – and it is free.

During the evening you can take a musical ride through yesteryear in the Old Town Trolley. There is a trolley stop at the parking garage and many stops throughout Old Town. The trolley makes stops every 10 minutes.

For the Kids:

Dynamite Dave will be at Old Town Front and Main Street in Old Town from 6 to 9 p.m. and there is a Jolly Jump at 4th and Front Street for the Kids. Professor Pennypickle is sharing secret agent techniques as kids help track down the meaning of codes and clues at Pennypickle’s Workshop/Temecula Children’s Museum from 5:30-8:30 p.m. For information visit www.pennypickles.org.
