Live Music
THE BEATNIKS - Definitive '60s & '70s: Rock 'n Roll of the Cultural Revolution

Firework Stage - Luther Burbank Park
The Beatnik history can be traced back to the steamy coffee shops and poetry dens of Soho, In New York's Greenwich Village. Today, the Beatnik legacy lives on in four young men who adhere to the ideology that music is more than a mere background for our lives.
They perform the music of the 60's & 70's (and 80's, too); with energy and passion that you won't find anywhere. Capturing the essence of the music with their charisma, chemistry and natural talent is why people all over the world are fans of the band.
The Beatniks are a rarity; not often does a band come along that is able to do everything right, but do it to near perfection as well. In true Beatnik tradition, these boys will provide the feel and soul of an era long erased from our calendars, but not from our memories…they create the memories of a lifetime.
