LIVAS MARTINEZ June 1 at Clarkdale Town Park

Clarkdale Community Services is pleased to announce the 2013 Concerts in the Park series. Clarkdale Community Services - Parks and Recreation annually hosts a series of concerts in the Clarkdale Town Park which run throughout the summer months.

These concerts are performed from the Town Park gazebo on Saturday evenings and are FREE to the public. This year eight concerts are offered representing a wide variety of genres.

The 2013 season opener will feature LIVAS MARTINEZ. They will perform 7-9 p.m. at the Clarkdale Town Park gazebo. This concert is sponsored by The Clarkdale Foundation.

Long time Verde Valley residents, Chris Livas and Dave Martinez reconnected two years ago to form the acoustic duo LIVAS MARTINEZ. They have over 50 years of musical experience which is evident in their act - performing their own blend of harmonies. Their show includes a mixture of classic rock from the likes of James Taylor, CSN, Cat Stevens, The Eagles and Elton John, just to name a few.
