Summer Sounds is a free, all-ages, sunset concert series happening Friday nights in June and July! Featuring an energetic lineup of multi-genre talents, this specially curated program brings some of Southern California’s most unique and eclectic artists to the Julianne and George Argyros Plaza. What better way to spend a summer evening than by bringing your beach chairs, picnic blankets, enjoying libations & light bites from George’s Café and dancing the night away!

About the Artist

Tolliver is an LA-based, Chicago-bred, sequin-loving son of a cowboy-obsessed pastor and a gospel choir singer. His songs are a gumbo of soul, funk, pop, camp and are as funny as they are soul-baring. His EP, Daddyland is a vibrant and sassy ode to appreciating and loving your imperfections. 

His ethereal-yet-gritty soul surviving nature has been compared to that of War, Al Green and Andre 3000. In February of 2022, Tolliver made his late-night debut performing his hit single “SAY WHAT” on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
