I’ve been to the Aquarium of the Pacific a couple of times but never got to see its new rooftop veranda. This August all the way to September, they’ll be having their Summer Concert Series and it should be a great opportunity for me and for you guys as well to enjoy the breeze and ocean views while watching live music performances by a variety of bands and artists on the Aquarium’s Rooftop Veranda
WHAT: The Aquarium of the Pacific’s Rooftop Veranda will serve as the setting for a Summer Concert Series. Wednesdays through September 10, the Aquarium in conjunction with Kirschner Creative Artists, will present a selection of musical acts to benefit the Aquarium’s educational programs and animal care.
Performances include the Latin jazz sounds of Scott Martin, West Coast soul with Raquel Rodriguez, the folk music of The Dustbowl Revival, cover songs from The Replicas, and singer/songwriter Kiki Ebsen.
