Four seasoned pros created an authentic musical experience that is lots of fun 

ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero is pleased to announce the next concert for the 2021 “Saturdays in the Park” Summer Concert Series. The event is held Saturday evenings throughout the summer at the Atascadero Lake Park Bandstand at 6:30 p.m. This Saturday, Aug. 28, The Rockin’ Bs Band takes the stage. 

Four seasoned pros come together to create a musical experience that is authentic and entertaining. The sum of its parts, the Rockin’ Bs Band has a diverse repertoire that is great for listening and dancing. Julie Beaver is a powerful country/blues violinist and vocalist who turns on the afterburners when it’s time to rock. Kenny Blackwell is every bit as versatile as a musician and singer and demonstrates his tasteful guitar prowess anytime he is on the bandstand. Americana man, Wally Barnick, brings strong vocals and solid electric bass while drummer, Art Dougall provides just the right amount of thump, having played with many prominent Central Coast bands for the past several decades. 

Music lovers of all ages will enjoy the wide range of styles, quality musicianship, and good vibes that the Rockin’ Bs Band members bring to the stage. For a more intimate “unplugged” experience, check out the Rockin’ Bs Trio (no drums, acoustic guitar instead of electric). 


Paradise Shaved Ice and Taqueria Don Jose will be selling their delicious concert fare, including shaved ice and tacos.
