LagunaBeachLive.org, our fabulous non-profit organization devoted to bringing great national and international acts to Laguna Beach, is debuting its summer season of Jazz Wednesdays on June 17th.
Once again at the Ranch on the Harvest Patio (fabulous in and of itself), the 7-part series offers single tickets for just $17 (including valet parking) or $136 for the entire season. Buy tickets here. No kidding, these tickets regularly sell out weeks in advance. Don’t hesitate!
Kicking off the season with a real boom, Dave Damiani and his 10-piece big band, the “No Vacancy” Orchestra, will be joined by Haley Reinhart, one of the top five finalists in American Idol’s 10th season. If you’ll remember, Haley had a great bluesy sort of voice whose consistent performances caused some of the biggest controversy at her unexpected departure. She, however, has created a significant career, and is now touring internationally with Post Modern Jukebox.
Damiani, Haley and the 10-piece band will be celebrating Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday … what a phenomenal way to kick off our summer of jazz!
Concerts are at 6:00 p.m. with doors open at 5:00 p.m. The Ranch is firing up a new menu of dining options, which can be purchased with a concert ticket for an additional $26.50 or at the door for $30. Cash bar is available all night.
Seating is assigned, so friends who wish to sit together should notify LagunaBeachLive at least 24 hours in advance.
