Children played.

Grown-ups danced.

Faces smiled.

Oh yeah, and the Patrick Lamb Band — led by singer, saxophonist and band leader Patrick Lamb — entertained the crowd with a string of hits dating back to the 1970s that put smiles on faces and feet on the de facto dance floor during the final Last Tuesday concert of the summer at The Round on Tuesday afternoon and evening.

That dance floor stayed busy throughout the performance, too, with Lamb himself occasionally venturing out from underneath the sun shelter to perform among the dancers while singing and playing his sax.

Lamb is described on his band’s website as “a Billboard charting artist and one of those extraordinary performers who combine raw talent and energy with a singular ability to captivate an audience with his charm, sincerity and pure magnetism. His focus as a saxophonist, songwriter and performing artist is ‘Old School’ R&B, soul with a flavor of Jazz. He combines the influences of funk, soul, R&B, and jazz to create his own uniquesound as a performer and a songwriter.”

The free Last Tuesday concert series — the Patrick Lamb Band followed performances in June by Hit Machine and in July by The Beatniks — drew a crowd estimated at over 2,000 and also marked the end of the series’ Tuesday dates.

In 2016, Beaverton’s Last Tuesday concerts will be moved two days further into the week and transform into Third Thursdays for June, July and August next year.

Tuesday’s sun-soaked event — which saw dozens of visitors enjoying the culinary offerings of Mio Sushi, MiNGO, Bogza and Siam Lotus — was sponsored by Reser’s Fine Foods, VillaSport Athletic Club and Spa, New Seasons Market and The Oregonian.

In addition to the offerings by the Patrick Lamb Band, intermission entertainment was provided by Experience Theatre Project.
