Cop Rock in the Making

Cop Rock in the Making

What started out as two friends planning a backyard party has turned into an East County musical event – and the public is invited to join in the fun.

Cop Rock 2018 is a Police Activities League (PAL) fundraiser to be held at The Streets of Brentwood on Saturday, May 19, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. It is a free, family-friendly concert featuring a lineup of local PAL bands along with The 925 Band. 

The event is presented by Joe Kieren, 925 Entertainment producer and The 925 Band member, and Greg Robinson, owner of The Brentwood Press & Publishing Corporation. 

“This went from planning a party in Greg’s backyard to a full concert,” said Kieren of the event. “One of my motivators is that I bought a new stage – a portable, professional stage, and we’re going to use it for the first time for the show.”

ABC7 news anchor and musician Dan Ashley will help emcee the event from 6 to 9 p.m. and will also perform with The 925 Band. Proceeds from the event will benefit the PAL music program and the Brentwood Rotary High School Scholarship Fund.

“We are very excited to put on this fantastic event at The Streets of Brentwood and invite everyone to come on out and bring your dance shoes,” said Robinson. “It’s going to be a great party.”

Also on-site will be a food court featuring items from Sticky Chicken & Ribs, Soleil Wood Fired Pizza, Villas Taco and Sip and Scoop California. Markstein Sales Company will offer five different varieties of craft beers, and the Sand Creek Pub will also pour its famous Altamont beer. Hannah Nicole Vineyards & Winery will host the wine garden and there will be plenty of kids activities, including the Tumble Time Xpress Bus, Allison’s Art Bus and the Rockabilly Balloon Bender. Visitors to the event can also enter a raffle to win a guitar.
