Los Angeles' own legendary funk rockers War -- known for such classic hits as "Low Rider," "Cisco Kid," "Spill the Wine" and "Why Can't We Be Friends?" -- are set to shake up the outdoor stage as part of the End of Summer concert series. The band's diverse styles have made them an enduring influence on modern music, blending rock, funk, Latin, jazz and R&B into an irresistible groove. After more than 40 years and almost 50 million albums sold, War is still going strong, led by original keyboardist Leroy "Lonnie" Jordan. Plus, as a bonus, you'll enjoy included same-day admission to the Los Angeles County Fair. Learn More
You’ve heard opera, and you’ve heard rock — but you’ve never heard opera rocked like the East Village Opera Company. A powerhouse five-piece band, a string quartet, and two sublime vocalists combine to bring the towering emotion and timeless musicality of opera into the 21st century. EVOC‘s inventive, hard-hitting arrangements of opera’s greatest hits include _La donna mobile _from Rigoletto, Habanera from Carmen, and Nessun dorma from Turandot – all performed full-length and in the original languages.
Born in New York City’s bohemian East Village, EVOC has become one of the hottest new acts in the music business. The idea of updating classical music is not new, but EVOC is totally fresh – an integrated, eleven-strong working band dedicated to rocking the opera with equal amounts of class, style and rhythm.
