Live music lovers should be advised that they have the right to get out and dance this Thursday evening in Historic Folsom as the FBI Band will be one scene at the Zittel Family Amphitheatre as the 2023 Summer Twilight Concert Series reaches its halfway point in the season. The evening concert is the seventh of a 14-week series that runs through August 31.

The FBI Band is known for playing the best hits of Motown Soul and much more as their playlist crosses multiple-generations and is always great fun for everyone. Even those less-inclined to “shake what mama gave ’em” have been seen tapping their feet, bopping and singing along with the FBI Band, according the band’s promotional materials.


Many claim that attending an FBI concet is like, “spending time with old friends.” Some of those “old friends,” include:  The Temptations, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Aretha, Etta James, Martha & The Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, The Staple Singers, Marvin Gaye also Sly and the Family Stone,  WAR and many more. All of which are artists  who have produced the music that stacks the playlist deep for FBI, show after show.

Taking place in the heart of the Historic Folsom Plaza the Historic Folsom Summer Twilight Concert Series is free to the public, thanks to a number of generous sponsors which help fund event. The 2023 line-up includes a variety of genres including a little bit of county, a little bit of rock and roll and a dose of hip hop, 80’s, pop, jazz and more in between.


Each Thursday night the music begins at 7:30p.m. and concludes at 9:30 p.m.  spectators are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs for event. Parking is free in the Historic District Parking Garage at 905 Leidesdorff Street, which is right next to the concert venue for a dance across the walkway to grab your seat for some great entertainment.
