The re-boot of Jazz at St. Andrews Recreation Center was a day of great music, food and fun! With the help of Councilman Harris-Dawson and his staff we were able to bring back jazz to the community.
The joyous sounds of America’s number one art form-Jazz returned to St. Andrews Recreation Center/Park, on Sunday, July 3, 2016. Local residents near the park as well as jazz aficionados from throughout Greater Los Angeles welcomed the return of this fabulous community event.
The annual St. Andrews Jazz Festival was held from 1:00-5:00PM. This edition of the festival was presented by Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, CD8, and the Empowerment Congress Southwest Area Neighborhood Development Council. The festival was generously sponsored by Community Coalition, Environment Sanitation, and Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.
Hundreds attended the St. Andrews Jazz Festival. The festival featured live music, a kid’s zone, food trucks and various vendors and resource booth. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the long 4th of July weekend, than with some Jazz on a Sunday afternoon.
