Coronado Promenade Concerts Releases 2024 “Concert in the Park” Schedule

A Coronado Musical Tradition for 54 years

The Coronado Promenade Concerts Board of Directors has unveiled their 16-concert schedule for the 2024 Coronado Promenade Concerts, aka Concert in the Park (or we’ve even heard “CITP” and “C in the P”). Board President Cathy Brown shared, “For our 54th season we are exceptionally proud of the lineup we have for this summer as we bring a mix of some fan favorites like ABBAFab, a few returning bands from last year, and some new bands delivering fresh and exciting sounds for our concert fans. We are also very proud to announce that Coronado High School junior and student in CoSA’s Graphic Design program Nicolas Hecker had his drawing selected for the cover of this year’s 2024 concert program.”

The opening concert on May 26 — the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend — features two bands: Coronado Concert Band at 4:30 pm, and at 6:30 pm a band featuring a former lead singer from The Mamas & the Papas, Laurie Beebe Lewis and the Electric Underground. Dance instructors Albert & T-Bell will be back offering dance lessons before two concerts, Big Time Operator on June 2 and The Dreamboats on June 23. On June 9, Marine Corps Band San Diego lands in Coronado. The Suenamis will treat Coronado to its playlist on Father’s Day, June 16, while Nate Nathan and The MacDaddy-O’s will get us up dancing as we head into the Fourth of July festivities on June 30.

July will be fabulous starting off with Coronado’s own Ron’s Garage followed by a very special concert for all the Parrot Heads out there. From Mississippi and Key West, Friends of Buffett will bring us to Margaritaville on July 14. Detroit Underground with their Motown sound along with a great horn section will entertain on July 21, and everyone’s favorite ABBAFab returns on July 28.

On August 4, all the way from Nashville along with a special guest, SixWire will bring on the country music and so much more, followed by the San Diego Padres house band, Cassie B on August 11. Coronado Philharmonia Orchestra is scheduled to perform on August 18 in honor of the World Design Capital celebration. Closing out the concert season are Coronado’s own Crown Town featuring Matt Heinecke on August 25 and It’s Never 2L8 on Labor Day Weekend.
