The Gardens on El Paseo will help raise funds for several Coachella Valley charities when it kicks off its 19th Annual Concert Series. Held on Saturday evenings, performances run from January 28 through March 18.
“For nearly two decades now, our concert series has brought together music and giving to unite the community,” says Patrick Klein, general manager of The Gardens on El Paseo. “This year, we will raise funds for eight vital charities that are providing much needed services, mentorship, funding, and more throughout our community.”
This year’s musical lineup will consist of blues, rock and roll, contemporary and jazz genres. The series kicks off with local favorite, John Stanley King Band, and continues with other well-known local and regional performers.
