The City of Palo Alto announces the 2016 line up for its popular Twilight Concert Series headlined by renowned Bay Area vocal and guitar jazz duo, Tuck and Patti.

The 2016 Twilight Concert Series celebrates the diversity of musical programming throughout the Bay Area. “The Twilight Series brings everything from Caravanserai, a Santana tribute band, to the high energy of the classic rock cover group The Unauthorized Rolling Stones,” says Artistic Director Judge Luckey. “From the Youth Orchestra and Choir Concert for children to the jazz and blues sounds of the U.S. Airforce Band of the Golden West and Pamela Rose, there’s something for everyone.”

This year the series will open with Teens on the Green - Buoyancy Festival, on Sunday, June 5, from 4:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Mitchell Park. This exciting new teen event will feature live teen bands, art and wellness tents, mural painting, carnival rides, plus food trucks with free vouchers for the first 500 teens to enter.

Two outdoor movie nights will also be included in the Twilight Concert Series lineup. “With the success of last year’s film nights, we are very pleased to present two more movies this summer,” Luckey noted. “Happy Feet and Babe are fun, family films that everyone will enjoy.”

The Twilight Concert Series events are held on Saturday evenings, June 18 – August 20. Concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. and films begin at 8:00 p.m.
