Blue Blazes will play their blend of ’50s rockabilly and blues, with a few ’60s surf instrumentals for good measure, starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Picnic in the Park. The family-friendly celebration is part of the Davis Farmers Market, which is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Blue Blazes features Dave Atkinson (lead guitar and vocals), Chuck O’Bear (drums and vocals) and Gary Meyers (bass and vocals). The band covers the music of Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins and Eddie Cochran along with blues from the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and George Thoroughgood, as well as some classic Jimi Hendrix tunes.

They perform regularly at downtown Davis events, Swabbies on the River and the Citrus Heights Summer Concert series. All Picnic in the Park music is sponsored and funded by the Davis Food Co-op.

Bring your own picnic or buy dinner at Picnic in the Park’s international food fair where there’s a wide array of dinner choices. Davis Soroptimists sell local beer from a new Sudwerk beer cart and local wine to raise money for the club’s charities.

Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.

Spring produce — asparagus, greens, lettuces, kiwis and strawberries — plus local eggs and honey fill the market, with craft booths at the north end. For more information, call 530-756-1695 or visit www.davisfarmersmarket.org to see the music schedule for the entire Picnic in the Park season.
