Local band Pacific Coast Highway calmly sat down in front of the Memorial Park stage on the evening of July 20, because they “wanted to get a little closer to the audience,” the lead singer, David Blasucci, explained. Dressed comfortably and carrying a demeanor just as mellow as their music, the soft rock band that had performed at Music in the Park for the last “three or four or five” years, as Blasucci casually explained, started their set with The Beatles “Here Comes the Sun.” With a local guest drummer Dave Buyer from Montrose, the band continued to sooth the La Cañada crowd with songs by Nora Jones, James Taylor, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Toto, Simon and Garfunkel, Sheryl Crow, and Van Morrison.
