Summer breezes… an intimate courtyard… free parking… and great music. Escape to Culver City for the 2018 Culver City’s Boulevard Music Summer Festival. Boulevard Music presents 6 free concerts on Thursday evenings at 7 pm from July 12 through August 16 in the palm-lined Dale Jones Courtyard of Culver City City Hall.
Curated by producer Gary Mandell of Culver City’s Boulevard Music, Culver City’s Boulevard Music Summer Festival offers something for everyone: The sounds of Choro with great vocals from Kátia Moraes and Brazilian Hearts plus the sounds of Cuba that’ll make you want to dance from Conganas (July 12); Classic Rock/Blues/Country with hot guitar from the Carl Verheyen Band featuring John Jorgenson (July 19); The Classic R & B and Soul review of Brenda Lee Eager (July 26); Americana/Country with hot banjo/fiddle from Tony Furtado featuring Luke Price (August 2); Classic Rock standards and originals from Venice and The Pine Mountain Logs (Aug 9); and a little acting in “The Heart of Screenland” from a great Beatles tribute band 4 Lads from Liverpool (Aug 16).
Avoid the crowds and parking hassles of other areas on the Westside. Parking is free for one hour (2 hours with festival validation) in designated structures in downtown Culver City, and dozens of dining options are available within walking distance. Culver City’s downtown area is Southern California’s best-kept secret, featuring a wonderful mix of historic buildings, boutiques, theaters, galleries, and unique restaurants opening onto tree-lined streets.
Admission is free, however, you could consider becoming an entry level sponsor by purchasing one of the 100 premium reserved seats at $10 each per show available at Boulevard Music starting June 20. Tickets may be purchased at Boulevard Music in person or over the phone. At this time these tickets are not available online and that probably won’t change for these tickets.
