The City of Solana Beach and the Belly Up Tavern are proud to announce the return of the summer “Concerts at the Cove” series.  Concerts at the Cove will bring local musicians to the Fletcher Cove Park stage in performances designed for audiences of all ages. 

The concert series emphasizes family recreation and cultural experiences in a relaxed outdoor setting by the beach, and provides an opportunity for families and friends to enjoy a variety of musical styles at sunset.  Concerts will be held every Thursday night throughout the summer from July 15 to August 26, from 6:00pm to 7:45pm.

Nate Donnis Trio

Characterized by the baritone vocals of Nate Donnis, the precise/intricate rhythm section of Phil Woodring (Drums) and Denis Sluka (Bass), the Donnis Trio is a folk/rock band from San Diego, Ca. Their music has received over 27 million plays on Pandora radio and music from their albums has been placed in shows like Skins (UK), Breaking Amish, 90210, MTV, and more. Stylistically their music gravitates towards influences such as Tom Waits, Wilco, and Eddie Vedder. Their latest album "Chroma" furthers this tradition with rich arrangements and artfully crafted songs.

The public is encouraged to bring low-back beach chairs, ground cover and picnics. No alcohol, tobacco, pets or personal BBQ’s allowed during concerts. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Parks and Recreation Department at (858) 720-2453.

The City would like to remind people to remain mindful of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and advises everyone to take the necessary precautions if you plan to attend the event.   Please stay informed regarding any updated public health advisories by visiting or
