(Apple Valley)– Although marketed as a southern rock band, Southern Spirit will play a mix of music ranging from rock to blues to country when they take the stage July 9 for the Heritage Victor Valley Medical Group Sunset Concert Series. This week’s concert is also supported by featured weekly host Big Apple Automotive.
Together since 1991, Southern Spirit is deeply rooted in the High Desert, a fact that is evident by the crowd of devoted fans they draw to venues all over the Victor Valley and beyond.
Part of their large, local fan base can be attributed to the fact that all of the band members are graduates of Apple Valley High School including Jaye Sooter, vocalist, guitar and bass player; Joe Eiffert, vocalist, lead guitar and keyboards; Teeci Eiffert, rhythm guitar and vocals and Bobby Jo Bearden on drums and vocals.
While the music is playing, park visitors can choose from an array of food choices and a beer garden. 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 prohibited in any Town parks.
The entertainment line-up for the rest of the summer includes:
- July 16 – The Blue Breeze Band (Motown/R&B)
- July 23 – Phoenix Rising (Classic Rock)
- July 30 – Hard Days Night (Beatles Tribute)
- August 6 – Neon Nation (‘80s Tribute)
- August 13 – Four Shadows Fall (Positive Alternative)
