After a seven-year hiatus, the Doheny Days Music Festival is coming back to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, and Laguna Beach dentist/musician Ken Garcia is on board.
The two-day festival last appeared in 2004, reportedly having grown a bit too big and wild for the low-key beach venue, according to Garcia.
The big music festival may have outgrown its locale, but "everybody missed it and wanted to bring it back," Garcia said.
"We're trying to bring back the surf and beach styles, with good family bands," Garcia added. "We think it's going to be one of the biggest Doheny Days they've ever had, and that's great for the future."
Garcia also plans to present a new "surprise" vocalist. He will perform his flamenco guitar styles with some original songs and "old rock tunes." He just released an album, "Highway 1 Revisited," with some references to an old Bob Dylan album.
