Friday, January 17: Common Sense with special guest Michael Tiernan
When it comes to rocking reggae with a southern California vibe, Common Sense stands alone. They've created their own style. And if you’re ready to have a good time, Common Sense is ready to accommodate. Reggae-rock guitar is the best way to kick off the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s Rock in the Park concert series!
Friday, February 7: Paul Cannon with special guest Michael Tiernan
He's homegrown, and he’s the real deal. Paul Cannon brings a cool, peaceful vibe that will have you grooving along with your friends like you’re at a bonfire on a San Diego beach. His song "Homegrown" was the most played song by any local artist in San Diego last year, and it was even chosen by the San Diego Padres as a theme song for the home team. Paul Cannon and his band deliver guitar-driven melodies and catchy lyrical hooks that will have you singing along.
Friday, February 21: To Be Announced
Friday, March 7: Venice with special guest Michael Tiernan
You can't leave a concert by Venice without saying WOW. In an age of "auto-tuned superstars," these four vocalists blend perfect harmonies. There is no musical style beyond their range. How good are they? Ask Roger Waters of Pink Floyd—the guys just finished touring with him as his backing vocalists for The Wall Live tour. Venice will bring a hugely diverse playlist to Rock in the Park!
Friday, March 21: A Very Special Performer with guest Michael Tiernan
We’re dying to tell you who’s going to close out the Rock in the Park series, but we can’t announce his name just yet. Trust us … it’s worth the wait. You know him, you love him, he’ll rock you. Stay tuned. We’ll be able to share the secret in February.
Michael Tiernan opens each show. He hung with monks deep in desert monasteries and lived in the Vatican, but he left the seminary for the higher calling of music, and has since racked up several national and international awards for his songwriting. His acoustic blend has a relaxed vibe mixed with a big city sound. Deep in meaning, yet playful in attitude, Michael’s music takes you from the temple to the tavern and from the beach to downtown.
