Jazz Night at the Crocker: Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers
Thursday, July 19, 2018
Sacramento’s longest-running summer jazz series is tuning up in 2018 with premier performances on third Thursdays, May through August. This year's lineup was selected by Capital Public Radio’s Jazz Music Director Gary Vercelli.
Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers keep things jumping with their brassy mixture of horns and sultry vocals. One of the most popular jazz acts in San Francisco, Lavay and her band light up stages around the world with sparks of swing and traditional jazz. Channeling the robust sounds of 20th-century marvels like Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington, Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers will get you on your feet for an evening of high-energy, swinging fun!
Each jazz concert consists of two 45-minute sets separated by a 15-minute intermission. Along with the concert, attendees can enjoy gallery talks, the Museum Store, and dinner and drinks at the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club. Arrive early to enjoy additional sets by DonGato Latin Band on the Café Stage from 5:30 to 6:15 PM. For the best seat in the house, bring your own chair. Visitors may not bring in outside food or beverages (excluding water).
