Summer Concert Series: Monreal Latin Jazz (Latin Jazz/Funk)
The Summer Concert Series presented by Facebook features a variety of musical styles from Jazz to Country to hits of today and yesterday. Bring your picnic blanket and dinner, and of course there is always room for dancers of all ages.

Lead by guitarist, composer and music teacher Sebastian Monreal,  Monreal Latin Jazz  is a quintet that explores different rhythms and styles of Central and South America. Moving seamlessly from classic jazz styles to blending in Latin sounds and rhythms that are not often associated with traditional Latin Jazz, to funky and even pshychadelic vibrations. The band is a testament of the Bay Area’s fertile ground for unboxed musical explorations.
