Americana in the Park Concert Series

McCabe’s Guitar Shop, in partnership with the City of Santa Monica, presents the second annual Americana in the Park concert series in Gandara Park, Sundays in September (4, 11, 18 & 25), from 4 – 7 p.m. The free series explores the arc of Americana music from its roots to modern forms, showcasing a diverse group of Southern California artists and styles. Each concert features a family-friendly headliner and opener. 

 

Americana in the Park is made possible by Art of Recovery, an initiative of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs. Harnessing the arts to continue playing a major role in the City’s recovery efforts, the initiative provides local artists and organizations funding and support from the City to bring engaging projects and events to the Santa Monica community. The concert series is an example of an Art of Recovery goal to expand access to the arts throughout the city through community partnerships. 

 

The concert series lineup includes: 

 

  • September 4: Singer-songwriter, poet, author and culture bearer Tina Orduno Calderon, will open the series with a Tongva land acknowledgment and blessing.  A performance by nine-time world champion Native hoop dancer Eric Hernandez will kick off the performances, followed by Prince Diabaté and Friends. Considered to be one of the leading kora players of his generation,  Prince Diabaté and Friends brings not only total mastery over his ancestral tradition, but a commitment to renew it through fresh ideas and exchanges with musicians from many cultures.

 

  • September 11: Comprised of teachers and staff from McCabe’s Guitar Shop, the McCabe’s Hootenanny Collective invites attendees to bring their instrument of choice and join a sing-along free-for-all. Next up the bluegrass group AJ Lee and Blue Summit perform a blend of country, soul, swing, rock and jam musical influences.

 

  • September 18: Folk rockin’ children’s music group Earthworm Ensemble will open for I See Hawks in L.A., a leading Southern California alternative country, Americana and folk rock band. 

 

  • September 25: The soul and jazz-inspired music of Jacob G. and the Score will open for Little Willie G. Nicknamed “The Godfather of Brown-Eyed Soul,” vocalist Little Willie G. gained fame with Thee Midniters in the 1960s and continues to thrill audiences with his local East L.A. brass-infused Chicano soul music. 

 

Each concert will feature rotating food trucks and a McCabe’s Guitar Pop-Up Shop. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. The Americana in the Park concert series will be held in accordance with the most current guidance from state and local health agencies.

Pinners Conference & Expo California Comes to Pomona Fairplex Fri & Sat August 26-27

Create, Imagine and Learn at Southern California’s Only Lifestyle, Trend and Crafting Expo

 

Returning from a “Pandemic Pause” to the Southland, the Pomona Fairplex will host Pinners Conference & Expo California, Friday and Saturday, August 26-27, 2022. Pinners Conference is a must-attend event for creators and lifestyle enthusiasts where experts connect with those who love to craft, cook, learn self-care, and create.  For two days, guests will have the opportunity to attend more than one hundred classes and presentations covering a variety of topics led by industry leaders.

“With so many options, our guests can customize their weekend. From picking and choosing classes, attending seminars, shopping and creating,” said Bennett. “Someone might stop by the Michaels Crafts booth and design a free make-and-take before taking a class by a local artist to learn how to watercolor, then find their new favorite outfit from a local boutique. Be sure to plan for the whole day!”

Advance registration is highly recommended, space is limited and class seats do sell-out. Tickets are always available for walk-ins the day of the event. 

“Come with your friends as a girl’s weekend, or make it day for yourself,” said Bennett. “Our guests are always amazed after trying just one class or buying that something special, they’ve discovered a love for something new!”

Hey Kids, Get in the Car, We're Going to Hollywood!

By Staff Writer

 

Residents of the Valley may not think about all of the wonderful tourist attractions that lay right here in our backyard living in the greater Los Angeles area, but the opportunities for residents and tourists alike abound with Starline Tours, the largest purveyor of guided tours and entertainment in the greater Los Angeles area. Starline Tours offers a variety of tours of popular attractions such as Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Malibu. Our tour guide, Lisa, an affable San Fernando Valley native, hosted tour number 1, which is the tour of stars homes in the Hollywood and Beverly Hills area. The tour began with an interesting overview of how Hollywood came to be, the development of the area around the studios, and the Hollywood legends past and present that reside in the area. Leaving from the TCL Chinese Theater, parking is conveniently available at the Hollywood and Highland parking garage, providing easy access to covered parking. Guests are taken around in a comfortable open top converted van that provides ample room for approximately 15 guests per van, but at no time does anybody feel crowded. Earphones are provided for each guest providing clear sound as the tour guide provides interesting banter about Hollywood lore and current residents. Some of the current and former stars’ homes on Tour 1 include those of television personalities like Jimmy Kimmel, Larry King, Lucille Ball, and Ellen DeGeneres; movie stars Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, and music personalities such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, and Ozzy Osborne. Starline tours offers a unique way to see LA as a tourist, or give out-of-town guests a hassle-free way to see all LA has to offer from the comfort and convenience of an open-top van or air-conditioned bus. Prices vary by tour. Tours leave daily from TCL Chinese Theater (and other locations), 6925 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA. 323-463-3333, http://www.starlinetours.com/los-angeles-tours.asp
