Jazz Night: Choo Choo Boogaloo
Thursday, August 22, 2019
Sacramento’s longest-running summer jazz series is tuning up and turning out in 2019 with premier performances on fourth Thursdays, June through September in the Crocker’s outdoor courtyard.
In big-band style, Peter Petty & His Titans of Terpsichore along with special guests take on songs like Glenn Miller’s “Chatanooga Choo Choo” and Billy Strayhorn’s “Take the A Train” in this rocking performance celebrating the Crocker’s summer exhibition The Race to Promontory: The Transcontinental Railroad and The American West.
Along with the concert, attendees can enjoy all the Museum has to offer, including special exhibitions, gallery talks, the Museum Store, and dinner and drinks at the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club. Please, no outside food or beverages (excluding water). This summer’s prelude music will be provided by the Beth Duncan Quartet on the Café Stage from 5:30 to 6:15 PM. For the best seat in the house, bring your own chair. There is limited seating provided, standing room to mingle, and plenty of space to dance.
Purchase tickets at the door.
