Outdoor concert series starts in July

Steel Lake Park in Federal Way will again be the site of the Summer Sounds at the Beach outdoor concert series this summer.

The free musical performances are scheduled for seven consecutive Wednesdays beginning in July, each at 7 p.m. and hosted by the city of Federal Way.

Dock Town, playing vintage jazz and blues, will start the series July 7. The rest of the lineup is Clinton Fearon (reggae singer) July 14, Party Safari (funk) July 21, Perry Sampley (contemporary Americana) July 28, Patrick Doherty (children’s music) Aug. 4, Raucous (country and rock band) Aug. 11 and Brad Warren (folk) Aug. 18.

Seating for the shows will be festival style. The audience can bring chairs or blankets. The park, which was the site for last year’s series, too, is at 2410 S. 312th St.

In case of rain on any of the concert dates, the shows will move indoors at Klahanee Lake Community Center.

The Summer Sounds series is one of two major events with live music that the city’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department is planning for next month. The annual Red, White, and Blues Festival July 4 at Celebration Park will include music groups performing on a stage. Children’s activities, interactive arts and sports clinics also will be part of the six-hour Independence Day event.
