Next in the series and sponsored by Connect Home Loans & Lisa J. Lewis is Unfinished Business on Friday, August 8. The ’60s may be long gone, but the members of Unfinished Business still have a passion for the music of that era and their “unfinished business” is to pick up where they all left off performing the hits of the ’60s by the great artists of the era, ranging from The Animals to The Zombies and including The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, and various Motown artists. Long live ’60s rock n roll. Food will be served by Thomas Hill Organics.

Soul Sauce, Aug. 15

If you like music that is tasty and hot, reach for the Soul Sauce on Friday, August 15. Whether it is a rockin’ soul song or a heartfelt ballad, the talent of these veteran musicians playing and singing in four-part harmony creates a stew of cookin’ tunes you’re sure to enjoy. Sponsored by Union Bank with food provided by Odyssey World Café, savor your summer.

Monte Mills & The Lucky Horseshoe Bank, Aug. 22

Wrap up your summer of live music with everyone’s favorite — Monte Mills & The Lucky Horseshoe Bank on Friday, August 22. A true singing cowboy, Mills considers the Lucky Horseshoe Band a “side job” compared to his full-time occupation as a horseshoer; his answering machine message starts with a yodel. Sponsored by Prudential Hallmark Realty & First American Title, keep the western theme going with delicious food provided by F. McLintock’s Saloon.

August’s summer concerts begin at 5:30 pm in the downtown City Park. J. Lohr Vineyards & Wine, Firestone on-tap beer, water, and soda will be available for purchase, with all net proceeds from the beverage sales going to the REC Foundation to help enhance parks and recreation in Paso Robles.
