Thousands of people filed into the Starlight Bowl on Sunday night to hear some live music, watch some fireworks and relax with family and friends.
The event was called a "Salute to the Soul of America" and marked the beginning of the Starlight Bowl's 2010 Summer Concert Season.
Armed with coolers filled with food and drinks, they trekked up the hills to the venue. Tickets ranged from $11 to $22, depending on how close one wanted to get to the stage.
Ron Black came to the concert as a spectator, but said he would love to come out as a performer next year and do some country singing.
The Burbank Philharmonic and Stone Soul, a band that covers classic soul and Motown songs from James Brown, the Temptations and the Four Tops, both came out to keep people grooving throughout the night.
