Aunt Kizzyz Boyz, Guilty Conscience, Silver Beatles open Hot Summer Nights In Old Town Temecula
Hot Summer Nights opens July 9, 6 to 9 p.m., with a musically-charged line up of Aunt Kizzy’z Boyz, The Silver Beatles, Guilty Conscience and Diego playing at different locations in Old Town.
Aunt Kizzy’z Boyz, a rocking blues band that packs Old Town Temecula every year, returns to the Old Town Front Street Bar & Grill (Baily’s Courtyard from 6 to 9 p.m.) The concert is free.
Bandleader Jimmy King on vocals, harp and guitar formed the Aunt Kizzy’z Boyz after sitting in with top musicians from Santana and Joe Cocker’s band. Vocalist Sugaray became interested in music while attending church, infusing a strong gospel style to his singing. He is known for his high energy and ability to get the entire crowd enthusiastically involved. Other members include Dwane Hathorn on drums, Joe Schiavone on bass guitar, Michael Mack on keyboard, and Bastos Moenho “Moe” on percussion.
Guilty Conscience will be playing at Temecula Cheese Company on Front Street at Fifth from 6-9 p.m. A multi-talented band that can play top 40 tunes and favorite rock tunes from the past, Guilty Conscience was so popular at previous Hot Summer Nights spectators raised tips to convince the band to play another set.
Friday, July 16, features The Bill Magee Blues Band, L.A. Jones & The Blues Messengers, Duchicela, and the classic rock cover band Two of Us Plus 1.
Duchicela, a popular Andes Pan Flute Band, will return to Old Town Temecula at Villa di’ Calabro’s patio on Main Street. Using handmade wooden flutes, drums and rain sticks, this unique band recreates popular tunes, jazz and rock, into a new age retreat from the world.
