(Apple Valley)– Concert goers can expect more than just music this week when the Big Fat Steve Band takes the stage at Thursday night’s Sunset Concert Series. The Apple Valley-based band also brings a lot of laughs sure to entertain the whole family.
The band, which classifies itself as a swing, rockabilly, jump blues and oldies group, is a five-man ensemble that hails from right here in Apple Valley. Lead guitarist Steve Orsinelli is also a film teacher at the Lewis Center for Education. It is not uncommon for Orsinelli to invite his musically inclined students to join the band on stage to sing or play an instrument.
The 7th Annual Sunset Concert Series, presented by Heritage Victor Valley Medical Group, will continue featuring live music in the amphitheater at Civic Center Park every Thursday throughAugust 14. This week’s concert is also supported by featured weekly host Armstrong-Fairway Insurance.
The concerts feature an array of food choices, a beer garden, and a sampling of farmer’s market vendors. The park has inclined lawn seating, so concert goers should bring blankets or portable chairs. No pets are allowed within the concert seating area and smoking is not permitted in any town park.
The entertainment line-up for the rest of the summer includes:
• July 31 – Phoenix Rising (Classic Rock)
• August 7 – Latin Express (Latin/Top 40)
• August 14 – Lady & The Tramps (Variety)
Civic Center Park is adjacent to Apple Valley Town Hall and across from Super Target in the Apple Valley Commons shopping center. Parking and admission are free.
