Concert series at Steel Lake Park

The city of Federal Way’s Summer Sounds at the Beach concert series at Steel Lake Park will open tonight with country singer Jonathan Harris.

The hour-long show, like the other six scheduled for each Wednesday from today through Aug. 20, is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Admission is free.

Classic rock, Celtic, salsa and jazz are among the musical styles on tap among the eclectic mix of performers.

Harris has been an opening act for country stars Merle Haggard, Jo Dee Messina and Trick Pony.

The summer series lineup also includes:

• Trivia (July 16), a three-man band whose rock songs will “take you back in time and make you feel good,” a group spokesman said.

• Grupo Son (July 23), a Seattle-based group that plays acoustic salsa from the Cuban countryside, complete with bongos and maracas.

• The Cutters (July 30), a four-person band whose members are from the same family and whose Celtic music is from the British Isles.

• Brian Waite Band (Aug. 6), with interactive music for children and whole families.

• Duwamish Dixieland Jazz (Aug. 13).

• Jazz for Youth (Aug. 20), whose three members play family-oriented popular music.

In case it rains on any of the concert nights, the shows will move from the outdoor venue at Steel Lake to the Klahanee Community Center. The center is at 33901 Ninth Ave. S.

Sponsors of the concert series are Eagle Tire and Automotive, Pat’s Plumbing, the city and the Cultural Development Authority.
