In Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and the L.A. Latin and Brazilian Music Scene
Grammy nominated Jazz legends Hubert Laws, Pete Escovedo and acclaimed percussionist Louis Cruz Beltran headline at the First Annual La Vida Music Festival at 7pm on Sunday, October 4th.
An evening filled with vibrant pulsating Latin and Brazilian music will fill the air at the historic Ford Amphitheatre-Hollywood and benefit a wonderful charity for Los Angeles youth.
The concert celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month and highlights an exciting array of Latin music that captures the essence of the Los Angeles music scene. Special guests include: Chris Bennett - saluting the women of Latin music, The Robert Kyle Brazilian band, Chalo Eduardo and the Brazilian beat and the spunky Mariachi Ellas Son.
Proceeds benefit Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI), a youth baseball and softball program currently celebrating their 20th anniversary, encompassing over 185 cities and over 150,000 girls and boys. RBI uses participation in their programs as a means to overcome academic and social disadvantages most inner city kids face.
Super packages include a VIP Ticket with dinner at Boardners, overnight stay at the Hollywood Heights Hotel and a pre-show artists reception including cocktails/wine/hors d'oeuvres and CD giveaways!
Tickets prices range from the $35 dollar general admission tickets to the $125 dollar super seat tickets
