The weather was hot!!. I wore casual-dressy summer dress--had a light shrug in purse--just in case. Hubby wore a semi-casual Hawaiian shirt & slacks. At Yoshi's you can dress up or down..

A wonderful event, featuring extraordinary talent in a perfect venue. What a gift to the community! I was surprised to find empty seats for what should have been a sold-out performance.
