The Motels are best known for their singles “Only the Lonely” and “Suddenly Last Summer,” each of which peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2018, the band released their new record “The Last Few Beautiful Days.”

“I am excited to have booked The Motels as part of this year’s “Concerts at the Lodge,” said concert promoter Doug Schultz. “Canyon Lake is going to have an excellent concert experience with a band that was all over MTV in their early days.”

Kenny Marquez will be opening the show. Kenny has performed at more than 500 venues in Southern California and boasts a vast musical career, including lead guitarist of the 80s/90s rock band Renegade. Renegade is widely recognized as being the first Hispanic or “Chicano rock” band to gain acceptance in the United States. Throughout Latin America, the band is known as Los Renegados.

The POA’s 2019 “Concerts at the Lodge” series will conclude on Nov. 2 with a performance by country music singer and songwriter Billy Dean. Dean’s studio albums have accounted for more than 20 hit singles on the Billboard country charts, including 11 Top Ten hits. Tickets for this concert are on sale now.
