You might not know that there is a new park in Downtown LA.  It’s nice!


Beautiful Grand Park opened on September 11, 2012.  They have a big fountain, lots of grass, a Starbucks, and a stage for concerts, such as the one we will be on for this show.  Every Thursday this summer there will be some kind of performance, and we are happy to be included.  If you happen to be anywhere in or near downtown on July 11 in the afternoon make it a point to stop by.

We’re very excited to have some outstanding artists contribute to this show, including vocalist Sara Gazarek, making her debut with the LAJC, and John Daversa, who might be doing his swan song with us, as he is moving on to the bluer waters of Miami later this summer. (UPDATE: John had to move on sooner that all of us would have liked, and by the time of this show he should be settling into his new digs in Miami.  Replacing him will be the excellent Garrett Smith on tromobone.)

There will be another more detailed post closer to the event, but for now, mark the date on your calendars!
