Our guests have plenty of entertainment options for American Independence Day 2017. Why fight the traffic to downtown Los Angeles, to the Sunset Strip, or to the Santa Monica Pier when the City of Burbank hosts one of the most dazzling July 4th celebrations in Southern California.
4th of July Spectacular
Celebrate American heritage by attending the spectacular gala held on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at the popular live music venue, Starlight Bowl. Nationally renowned The Company Men provide the entertainment for the 4th of July Spectacular. The popular pop group has appeared on several national and regional television shows, including PBS and Good Day New York. By sharing stages with artists such as Chaka Khan, Billy Joel, Sheena Easton, and Mariah Carey, The Company Men mix contemporary Top 40 hits with remade classics that span back as far as six decades. You can expect to hear original interpretations of songs written by legends like Prince, Sam Smith, The Four Tops, Michael Jackson, The Eagles, and Bruno Mars. The Company Men feature performers from Broadway and national touring companies who create an original throwback sound that complements a modern looking stage.
High-energy Los Angeles-based Grooveline opens for The Company Men. Grooveline features a customized mix of dance styles and choreographed routines for each song performed in a set. The group incorporates disco, Top 40, and new wave songs into its playlist. One of the most spectacular fireworks shows in greater Los Angeles begins shortly after 9pm.
