La Mirada local Gary Allan makes his triumphant hometown return with this concert at La Mirada Theatre!

The Django Festival Allstars bring the music of the legendary jazz guitarist, Django Reinhardt, into the 21st century. Their unique, high-energy performance pays tribute to one of the greatest guitar players of all time whose unmistakable cool and jumpin’ “joie de vivre” influenced a wide range of musicians including Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Willie Nelson. Reinhardt’s driving, swinging style of “hot jazz” sizzles as masterfully played by the Allstars, who unleash their own interpretations, arrangements, and original compositions with stunning virtuosity. The Django Festival Allstars have taken America by storm, performing at top concert halls and festivals to standing ovations. Now’s your chance to hear what Downbeat Magazine called “the hardest swinging band” live in concert at La Mirada!

The Four Tops (originally called The Four Aims) made their first single for Chess Records in 1956 and spent seven years on the road and in nightclubs, singing pop, blues, and Broadway, but mostly jazz — four-part harmony jazz. When Motown’s Berry Gordy Jr. found out they had hustled a national appearance on “The Tonight Show,” he signed them without an audition to be the marquee act for the company’s Workshop Jazz label. Their first Motown hit, “Baby, I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars. “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown’s longest-running chart toppers. It was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, “It’s The Same Old Song.” Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy, “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing In The Shadows of Love,” and “Bernadette.” In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, The Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Though they would no longer have hits on record, the group continued to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly. The band’s current lineup is Ronnie McNeir, Roquel Payton, Harold “Spike” Bonhart, and Abdul “Duke” Fakir, the only surviving founding member of the group.

Conventional wisdom has it that Amy Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map, becoming the first CCM artist to have a Platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts, and the first to perform at the GRAMMY Awards. Since then, Grant has been strumming her way through a 30-plus year adventure as a singer-songwriter, author, television host, and speaker. Early on, Grant’s iconic voice became instantly recognizable in both the Christian and pop worlds. In 1986, she scored her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 song in a duet with Peter Cetera, “The Next Time I Fall.” In 1991, she released the blockbuster album Heart in Motion which became her best-selling album to date, topping the Billboard Christian album chart for 32 weeks, selling five million copies in the U.S., and producing her second No. 1 pop single “Baby, Baby.” Amy Grant is presented with McCoy Rigby Entertainment.
