Try the Fish Company in Los Alamitos. No reservations but worth the wait.

Excellent group & performance, facility has drawbacks (no middle aisle, inadequate restrooms, fee for parking) but acoustics are good & seats comfortable.

I really did enjoy this event. The festival seating was a big plus. However, the 2 o'clock show was filled with a very old audience. The walkers were lined up like a used car lot.

Most of the crowd was over 80, but this act would be fun for anyone with broad musical tastes (my wife and I brought our 12-year-old daughter, and we're well under 80). The're very good musicians -- to my untrained ear.

Quotes & Highlights

“Lovingly and precisely recaptures the sound in a irrepressible, irresistible style. They deserve a national medal for preserving this music with such affection and accuracy.” –San Francisco Chronicle


The Long Beach Community Concert Association closes out their season with a swinging finale featuring an audience favorite: the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra. Drawing inspiration from the great music of the “Jazz Age” and “Swing Era,” the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra affectionately recaptures the excitement and fascination of that musical heyday.
