San Diego Symphony's Tux 'N Tennies Hits the Right Chord with KC & The Sunshine Band!

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


The San Diego Symphony was a hit once again June 27th, 2013 as hundreds of music patrons gathered at the San Diego Embarcadero for Tux 'N Tennies. Groovy dress was encouraged - think tuxedo jackets, shorts, bell bottoms, and platform shoes!

After a cocktail reception, guests enjoyed a Sycuan Casino buffet of delights, and then an exceptional San Diego Symphony performance!... Did we say exceptional.... more like out of this world!

And it just got better.....

The Symphony was later joined by the iconic groovy group KC and the Sunshine Band..... Can we say 'Keep It Comin' Love,' 'I'm Your Boogie Man,' 'Get Down Tonight,' and more...... Everyone but everyone danced!... and it was FUN!!
