Sunday, Aug. 6: The Coronado Woman’s Club and the Coronado Junior Woman’s Club present The Detroit Underground at 6 p.m. as part of the Coronado Summer Concert Series at Spreckels Park at 7th Street and Orange Avenue. Since 1994, The Detroit Underground has been in high demand as they have treated audiences to powerful vocals, a funky rhythm section and “smokin” horn sounds — with a 3-piece ensemble of trumpet, sax and a trombone. From Motown hits, to heart-felt ballads and modern classics, this 9-piece member band provides a complete musical experience.
