This new month is already full of anticipation! With Saint Patrick’s day coming up our event calendar has all the events you’ll want to be a part of! I will shed some light on a couple, because if you haven’t noticed-it is packed! Whether you’re looking for something musical or tasty, I’m sure you’ll find something great in Livermore with the help of our event calendar!
Later this week, on March 17th, there will be a great evening filled with jazz! Smooth jazz ensemble, Secret Tattoo, will be performing from 6:30pm to 9:30pm! Now, when I was researching more on this, the performers sounded so familiar! I realized, most of the performers were my former music teachers! Mr. Tom Renner was my choir teacher, and he has insane saxophone skills! I mean, when he would play something, nearly 98% of us wanted to learn sax. With that being said, he and the other performers are super talented and I promise you won’t be disappointed! Be sure to catch Secret Tattoo on the 17th!
Another great music event I have to mention is East Bay Jazz High School All Stars Band! Sponsored by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, auditionees spend countless hours each week working hard for this event. Having been in a high school performing arts magnet, I know the hard work that gets devoted to each rehearsal and practice. There will be a big band and a smaller jazz combo for this event, be sure to peep the event calendar for times, ticket prices and seat information!
Fun at the Bankhead Theater!
This month of March, the Bankhead Theater is loaded with great shows! As I was browsing, I became very interested in two of the shows listed in our calendar. Complete with a nine piece band and fantastic performers, Kahulanui will be premiering March 24th from 8pm to 11pm. I love Hawaiian culture, especially music, and their history. This performance will be a great combination of traditional Hawaiian tunes mixed with the influenced big band themes brought during World War II. If you want to hear more context of this performance, see our event calendar! A perfect date night or friend hang out at the Bankhead? Yes please!
Another great showing I noticed was Rhythmic Circus “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now.” Having great success since 2008, this mix of percussive dance and hard rock has been gaining popularity rapidly! With a great variety and toe-tapping tunes, everyone will be feeling the rhythm! Children and adults, this event at the Bankhead Theater will be a night to remember! So be ready March 31st from 8pm tp 11pm; a night full of dancing and great music will leave you feeling nothing but the best! Check the calendar for specifics and more descriptive details!
Along with musical events, there are countless events where you can taste amazing food and drinks! From Wine Wednesday at the Backyard Bayou featuring Stony Ridge Winery to special “Friday only Lunch Services” at Double Barrel Wine Bar, you might just find your new favorite spot to dine! Double Wine Barrel will be hosting special lunches in honor of Chef Patrick, so be sure to reserve the date so you can try it out!
I know you will find a new activity this month of March, so keep tuned with our events calendar! Let us know what events you attended or found extra fun! Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
