The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series and the Police Experience return to Ashley Pond at 7 p.m. Friday to pay tribute to the Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame band, The Police.
The drummer for The Police, Stewart Copeland said, “every nuance, all the drum parts and the singer, has Sting down to a tee.”
Taylor Hawkins, drummer for the Foo Fighters, has sat in with the Police Experience a number of times and tells the story of the first time he jammed with them in 2009.
Don’t forget that Taylor knows “foo” when he sees it and also grew up listening to — and loving — the Police. Taylor said, “ all of the sudden I was transported back to 1983. They knew every Police song perfectly. It might have been the awesomest, funnest, most musically satisfying experience.
This guy David Rasner (the lead singer) sounds exactly like Sting.”
The Police Experience will perform songs like “Roxanne,” “Walking On The Moon,” “Every Breath You Take,” and “Don’t Stand So Close To Me.”
The opening ceremony for “Relay For Life,” the annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, will begin with the opening ceremony at 6 p.m. at Ashley Pond. At 6:30 p.m., there’s will be a survivor’s lap, with the luminaria ceremony starting at 9 p.m.
Last year for this event, the Scottish band, Old Blind Dogs performed.
On June 22, rock, country and blues Texan, Guy Forsyth will perform at Ashley Pond.
