Last evening, the 17-piece Jack Lantz Big Band filled the Eagle Rock Park bandstand and treated concert goers with a concert filled with great swing music of the 30’s through today. A couple hundred concert goers dotted the slopes in front of the bandstand. They picnicked, listened, applauded and danced, ultimately under the stars. Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and Venus showed up too!
Jack Lantz Band’s big sound performance was the 8th and final Concert for this Summer. Once again it proved a memorable way to bring the year’s Concerts in the Park to a close.
Kudos to organizing sponsors Michael Nogueira of Sir Michael’s Party Rentals, Councilmember José Huizar and the 11 sponsors of the eight individual concerts. Well done!
