Music Matters

Laguna's music scene has been nurtured by music lover and tennis instructor, Rick Conkey. Rick has come up with a brilliant combination of ideas, his Music Matters showcase focuses on expanding the careers of talented independent musicians, while also expanding awareness of keeping our oceans and planet clean and healthy. He is also the driving force behind Help Blue Water, which spreads the music, the message and the movement of inspiring action toward a healthier environment.

And what better venue than The Cliff Restaurant for listening to great music, while catching the stunning sunset as it sinks into the Pacific Ocean? You'd be hard-pressed to find one, even here in Laguna. The Cliff Restaurant sits above sand and surf, so your view is seemingly endless, and your chances of spotting dolphin are pretty high. It's a real stunner!

Here's next week's musical line-up, 7/1/2013 - 7/5/2013:

*Monday – The Ken Garcia Band
Tuesday – The PawnShop Kings
Wednesday – Kevin Miso
Thursday – The Salty Suites with Chelsea Williams

The showcase takes place Monday - Thursday, starting at 6 - 10pm for the entire summer. There is no cover charge, and all ages are welcome. Be sure to use the free trolley service, which will drop you off right in front of the restaurant, to avoid parking nightmares.

*The Cliff Restaurant will be offering transportation for their guests with pick up and drop off within the city of Laguna Beach. This service will be available Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. (or when they close) every week.
If you need a ride, just give them a call at 494-1956. They will need your name, phone number, address and time of pick up. For guests coming from outside the city limits, the rates for each way from the following cities are: Newport Beach, Irvine, San Clemente, Mission Viejo / $ 20.00 dollars each way; Aliso Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Dana Point / $ 10.00 each way
