Music in the Park

In Music

Hidden in the residential neighborhood of Yorba Linda is a park that hosts a plethora of summer music concerts. It features bands for nostalgic adults and also gives children a playground and a field of grass to run around.

The concerts, at Hurless Park’s Amphitheater, are held every Sunday (until August 21) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The concert series offers everything from classic rock to big band entertainment, and has been the town’s most widely-attended event since its debut in the mid-80s, according to Orange County’s AOL City Guide.

Entertaining the crowd on July 17 was classic rock band, Pretzel Logic, a Steely Dan Revue. The band covered classic Steely Dan songs including “Reelin’ in the Years” and “Josie,” which went over well with adults.

The younger crowd was offered craft booths and carnival games, while their parents barbecued and socialized.

“I love the social atmosphere of the concerts, with the music and areas for kids to play,” said Yorba Linda resident Andrea Pawell.

With such a huge venue as the backdrop for the concert, the crowd was impressed. The main participants were local families, fans of the band and people just out for a good time.

Pretzel Logic encouraged the audience to dance on certain songs, with Felice Hernandez, backing vocals for the band, jokingly telling the crowd to line dance.

Only one couple danced throughout the sets, but that didn’t stop any energy the jam band was producing from being contained.

After playing all the covers they could muster, Pretzel Logic ended their show with a bang, highlighted by Mark Vincent playing his guitar with his teeth.
