Zoot Suit Riot is an exciting theatrical big band party that evokes the spirit of the historical Chicano cultural revolution that shook L.A. in the 1940s. Capturing the post-WWII era's highly-charged, trend-setting swing music, energetic dancing and wildly colorful style, the show features popular songs from '90s swing revivalist bands like Cherry Poppin' Daddies ("Zoot Suit Riot") and Royal Crown Revue ("Hey! Pachuco!"), inspired by the era's combination of outrageously cool style and demands for social change. Learn More

Concert was loud and upbeat. He felt comfortable enough to walk through the crowd on the seats, even though he mentioned that we were in ''the hood''! A lot of empty seats but the enthusiasm of the crowd made up for it. Nice theater,wouldn't mind going there again. Wish the bar had more snacks and beverages.
Rick Springfield is an Australian-American songwriter, musician and actor. As a musician, he is most famous for the 1981 #1 single “Jessie’s Girl”, which became a Grammy Award-winning landmark of 1980s pop-rock and helped establish the emerging music video age. Other notable singles include “I’ve Done Everything for You,” which was written by Sammy Hagar, and reached #8 on Billboard.
Springfield won a Grammy in 1982 for “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” for “Jessie’s Girl”. Springfield was also nominated for a second Grammy in 1982 and a third Grammy in 1983. His subsequent release in 1982, the album Success Hasn’t Spoiled Me Yet, also contained a string of top 40 hits including the #2 hit “Don’t Talk to Strangers” and the ballad “What Kind of Fool Am I?”
