On Saturday, February 17, 2018 the Peter Kavanaugh Quartet will perform American Jazz standards at the West Hollywood Park Auditorium, located at 647 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Bandleader, composer, and guitarist Peter Kavanaugh’s heart and soul are firmly rooted in American jazz and popular classics. He revitalizes these standards with a smooth and sophisticated 1960s West Coast cool jazz take, based in electric guitar and vibraphone. His upbeat sound transports listeners to post-war, mid-century swing sounds of Southern California, with the addition of unexpected elements such as bossa nova, blues, bop, and gypsy jazz. Reservations are not required but are recommended at http://bit.ly/PeterKavanaughQuartet.
