1. San Ramon Fourth of July Celebration Concert

The San Ramon 4th of July 2022 Celebration Concert will feature Pride & Joy, one of the best Bay Area party bands playing all of your favorite songs. The evening will begin with patriotic music from Olympia Fields and a tribute to our Veterans. 

Pride & Joy is the Pride of the Bay Area and a Joy to anyone who loves to dance. They have achieved this by presenting the most timeless pop/soul music of our time in an electrifying high-style show that pulls the audience directly into the heart of their performance. “It’s always been natural for us to reach out and draw in the audience. We make the people feel they’re part of the performance because they are,” says Pride and Joy founder and bandleader Coleman Burke. “That’s what Pride and Joy has always been about...creating a great feeling. That’s as important a part of our show as the work we put into our look, choreography and arrangements.
