The FREE community-wide “Music at Skypark” concert series returns for its 12th season with a new format and a new location - Siltanen Park in Scotts Valley. “Music at Skypark” becomes “Music at Siltanen Park” this year! While Skypark undergoes repairs, the three-concert series morphs into a one-day festival on Sunday, September 26, 2021 at Siltanen Park, featuring three headliner bands, all with huge local followings:
1 pm -- Alex Lucero and Live Again leads the festival off with their vast range of soul, funk, jazz and reggae.
3 pm -- The Billy Martini Show (70’s Musical Tribute) delivers foot-stomping oldies with humor and style.
5 pm -- The Joint Chiefs presents their unique fusion of funk, acid, jazz and classic R and B for their 12th year at this concert series!
Music at Skypark has become a beloved community event, perfect for everyone - especially after a tough year of viruses, fires and economic turmoil. The all-volunteer Kiwanis Club of Scotts Valley will once again put on the concert, and dedicate all profits to the music programs at local public schools (concert profits over the years now top $140,000).
Kiwanis and local businesses will offer a range of food, wine, beer and other concessions for sale. Volunteer opportunities and sponsorships are still available. Visit http://www.svkiwanis.org for details or contact Mike Stewart at (831) 334-8899 or Jim Melehan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Music at Skypark continues to be the main source of funding for our District's music program,” remarked Beth Hollenbeck, the former music director of Scotts Valley Unified School District. “On behalf of our students, staff and administration please know how deeply grateful we are for your support of this growing program. It's no wonder the NAMM Foundation repeatedly awards Scotts Valley the "Best Community for Music Education"!
