Anyone up for a drive? Stop in for some curry... stay for some instrument making and music listening.

Summercamp's Project Project 3119 Chadwick Drive Los Angeles, CA 90032

Summercamp's Project Project presents JazzCircle, a music driven event in conjunction with Art Los Angeles Contemporary Fair’s alternative space tour. The event will be featuring musicians Abe Lagrimas Jr. and Robert S. Hilton. Organized by Fatima Hoang, Elonda Billera & Janice Gomez. 

As a storyteller and musician, Robert S. Hilton utilizes natural and found material to create unique musical instruments.  He will be on hand to help you find your own musical  voice and sound by making a tiny flute out of a PVC pipe, balloon, and rubber band that you play by touching the balloon to change the pitch.

If you are interested in making larger instruments, we will provide some materials and tools, but please also bring an assortment of additional materials that can resonate (such as a coffee canister, cigar box, cookie tins, PVC pipe) and anything else you think can create sound.

In the living room, Abe Lagrimas Jr. (drums) has invited fellow jazz musicians, Yohei Nakamura (guitar) and Miko Espanol (bass), to perform original songs, improvisations, experiments and standards.  And maybe we can convince Abe to bring out his ukulele! 

Please join us, Sunday, January 31 from 2-6PM.  Vegetarian curry will be served around 3, jazz in the living room will start at 4, and instrument making is all you.
