The Huntington Beach Concert Band is the original city band that has provided a wonderful jazz concert series in Central Park for many year. Entertaining Orange County Since 1973, the band contains musicians, many successful in careers in the music industry, but glad to perform in community events. The HB Concert Band launches the concert series each year in July and usually includes a patriotic line up of songs just in time for Huntington Beach's big 4th of July event. Go red, white & blue!

Bring a picnic basket and blanket or lawn chairs to sit in the shade and enjoy this fantastic, free entertainment served up in a bandshell with sounds projecting up to the hills near Central Library. Bring kids, bring well-behaved pets, and relax with quality, free jazz!
