One Night Only! Play It Forward! Benefit Concert to raise funds for the students in the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School.

There are few opportunities to see jazz and rock and roll legends mentor and play alongside a group of talented students in order to raise funds for the students in the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School (Acalanes Union High School District). On May 17th, 2014 at 7:00 PM, a night of musical magic will provide that perfect opportunity.

Jamie Davis, (former vocalist for the Count Basie Orchestra), Carlos Reyes (world renowned electrical harpist and violinist), and Greg Errico (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and founding drummer for Sly and the Family Stone) are coming to town to play a One-Night-Only concert. They will be sharing the stage with Leon Joyce (former drummer for Ramsey Lewis), Glen Pearson, John Shifflett and Roger Glenn. There will also be guest appearances by the Walnut Creek Intermediate Jazz Band, the Las Lomas Jazz Band and the Las Lomas Chorale.

Under the direction of Jamie Davis, attendees will enjoy an amazing evening that stirs your soul and moves your feet.
