  1. I love the summer concerts but nothing is free. This cost the city about $200,000 per summer for these events. Nobody plays for free, overtime for guess who, the beach staff, the recreation staff. This could have been eliminated to save some jobs for our neighbors who were recently laid off… How can we enjoy while some people will lose there homes, health insurance etc…

  2. Sorry, VSA, but id rather watch free concerts all summer than employ YOU and your family members in unnecessary jobs we can’t afford.

  3. The men who work the concert series do NOT make overtime at all. They work at night that is NOT overtime. They work in blazing heat, serious thunderstorms and around some of you wonderful people who appreciate not much of anything they do. Geez, try enjoying yourselves and relax. Not every city employee makes a fortune or is full time either. Some have worked many years and just got fired. So heres a big THANK YOU concert employees from one old lady who enjoys all your hard work!!! (and no I’m not and employee of the city of Long Beach just a fan of the concerts)

  4. Anthony speaks the truth:

    Senior citizens are the only group of people that actually attend and enjoy these things.

    They’re also the only group that actually attends and votes on every single local matter.

  5. Few of the concerts in the past were worth listening to. Possibly the worst live music I ever heard was Rick Mango, it really sucked, and these hacks get paid? When more city employees have to paid overtime than there are people attending these showcases of dreck something is wrong.
