[NEWPORT BEACH, CA] – Summer is finally here, which means Friday evenings just got hotter in Southern California! The Bank of the West Summer Concert Series returns this June through October for another incredible season of world-class music, fine wines and gourmet dining at the intimate Back Bay Amphitheatre at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach.

The series kicks off on June 24 with The Bacon Brothers, Michael & Kevin Bacon, and continues with 13 more Friday evening concerts through October 14. Headlining the 2016 lineup is musical icon Smokey Robinson, pop hitmaker Kenny Loggins, legendary jazz vocalist Al Jarreau, the “hippie with soul” Allen Stone, and contemporary jazz stars Boney James, Brian Culbertson and Mindi Abair & The Boneshakers.

Prior to the concerts, guests have the option to pre-purchase a gourmet dinner buffet at the Hyatt’s signature restaurant, SHOR American Seafood Grill, featuring fresh-from-the-docks daily specials. SHOR focuses on simple, fresh ingredients – a perfect dining option to start the evening.
