Fresh off their 2014 PBS concert special, Let the Good Times Roll, the retro doo-wop specialists known as Under the Streetlamp step into the spotlight for a night of great music from the '50s and '60s. This modern-day Rat Pack is made up of recent leading cast members from the hit musical Jersey Boys, who apply their unique blend of tight harmonies and slick dance moves to Motown and old time rock 'n' roll hits, putting their own spin on timeless tunes by The Drifters, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Four Seasons and many more. The 10-member pop a cappella ensemble Gentleman's Rule are the special guests. Learn More

We had so much fun at this concert! San Diego Symphony was amazing during the first half with lots of fun music from the 70's. The second half with Kool & the Gang was high energy and loads of fun. We got great seats with the discount and was happy to be at table instead of in the grass. There were fireworks at the end of the show. Totally unexpected!
Get ready to “Get Down On It” at the Embarcadero with Kool & The Gang! They thrilled Summer Pops audiences at the first Tux n’ Tennies Summer Bash two years ago, and now they’re back!
Celebrate summer with this Grammy-Award winning ensemble performing their greatest jazz, R&B, funk and pop hits including “Celebration,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Ladies Night” and “Get Down On It!” Enjoy Kool & The Gang performing with the San Diego Symphony at one of America’s finest outdoor venues, Embarcadero Marina Park South.
Matthew Garbutt opens the concert with a Dyno-MITE selection of 1970s movie and TV music. And don’t forget to dress up for our 1970s costume contest!
