The Dadbeats, a local cover band that plays eclectic hits from the '60s to the '90s, will perform at Descanso Gardens' annual Father's Day Barbecue onSunday, June 16.
The Dadbeats were Verdugo Woodlands Elementary School dads who got together to play one song for a school event. Fast forward three years -- these daddies (who work in medicine, finance, design, marketing and entertainment) are playing gigs at local venues and winning fans with their repertoire that includes tunes by the Beatles, the Cure, Elvis Costello, the Ramones, Tom Petty -- well, you get the idea.The Dadbeats perform from12:30 to 2 p.m.in the Under the Oaks Theater. Concert free with admission.

I live for adventure! I've been in rock bands, movies, plays and on TV. I adore animals, motorcycles get my heart racing and I also have a passion for sushi and ice cream (not at the same time). I was the Queen of the 31st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. I am also a professional belly dancer (swords are my speciality), a Polynesian/Tahitian dance student and a full-time journalist. Here, I'll share some of my life- who I meet and where I go in the music scene, as well as music news, and any other intriguing people, places and things I come across. **PLEASE NOTE: Here I will also post excerpts from press releases I receive with information on upcoming entertainment events and news.** Welcome and keep on rockin'!
