Oceanside CA– The City of Oceanside Parks and Recreation Division and the Friends of Oceanside Parks opened the Heritage Park Summer Concert Series, Sunday, with music featuring the banjo picking of Jim Underwood and acoustic guitar of Dave Cavanaugh.
Over 100 people attended the event, including Mayor Jim Wood, Council members, Jerry Kern, Jack Feller and Miss Teen California, Alexxa Morgan. The ‘Mayberry’ like setting of Heritage Park, located 220 Peyri Road, was a perfect way to wind down the Independence Day weekend. The ice cream shop was open, hot dogs were on the grill and raffles were held at the intermission and the end of the program.
Next Sunday, July 13th, will feature the music of ‘Bluegrass Brethren’. The group presents a unique blend of gospel, hymns and traditional instrumentals to their listeners. Bluegrass Brethren’s simple instrumental approach combined with heartfelt vocals and a fun loving stage presence make for an entertaining event. Best known for their own special brand of original gospel tunes rendered in a bluegrass music style, the group has delighted audiences of all ages since 1977. In 1980, their original composition “The Closet” became an instant hit among Bluegrass Brethren fans. It is, today, considered a classic. Their most recent album releases include “Complete” and the Hymns volume II: “Near the Cross”. Their music has received national and international radio airplay.
