AVALON, Calif., May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Smash Mouth is kicking off a new concert series on Memorial Day Weekend at Descanso Beach Club, next to the crystal clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, on beautiful and romantic Catalina Island.
The series is brought to you by The Xceptional Music Company and The Santa Catalina Island Company. The stage will overlook yachts floating a few yards offshore, the bar will be open, and the music terrific!
The American rock band, Smash Mouth, whose song, All Star, and whose cover of I'm a Believer, helped make the movie, Shrek, a hit, will begin the season. The Clay Colton Band will open.
On July 8th, Toad the Wet Sprocket, bringing such songs as All I Want and Walk on the Ocean, will share the stage with Rusted Root, with tunes like Send Me On My Way.
On August 12th, Colman Hell's soaring hit, 2 Heads, has led to a new full album, much of which will be heard, some possibly for the first time, in Catalina. Everett Coast will open.
And you can celebrate Labor Day by vacationing to the reggae of The Wailers, who with Bob Marley sold over 250 million albums. Con Todo featuring Mariela Contreras will open.
Catalina has always been a favorite vacation spot of Hollywood "A-Listers", and still is, from Marilyn Monroe to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
When the Wrigley family of chewing gum fame bought Catalina in the twenties, they brought the biggest music of that the era. In more recent times, Catalina visitors have heard the music of Kenny Loggins and legendary surf guitar player, Dick Dale, and lately they have heard the music of our time, with recent performances by Snoop Dog and Post Modern Jukebox at "Up For Whatever."
Catalina also offers an abundance of amenities including the only "on the beach" bar in California at Descanso Beach Club, the luxurious Island Spa, ocean front restaurants and shops, concerts by the sea, and dozens of activities and tours like the Zip Line Eco Tour, East End Adventure, Undersea Expedition, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, parasailing, and many more.
