Enjoy "Jazz Under The Stars" this summer as some of the Northwest's best talents perform live at Pacific Lutheran University. Complimentary star gazing charts will be handed out.
Luigi LaCross is a four piece combo that came together during the summer of 2012 to play each other's original music. The group features John Croarkin (flute, bass flute, harmonica, alto & soprano saxophones), Drew Gibbs (piano, hand percussion, drum kit), Phil Lawson (guitar), and Steve Luceno (string bass, seven string guitar, vocals). They all live in Olympia WA, and have performed as Luigi LaCross at St. Martins University, The Royal Lounge, Traditions Fair Trade Cafe, and at the Washington Center For The Performing Arts' "Black Box Jazz Composers Concert Series". They released their first CD in May 2014; it includes, as a special guest, singer Lizzie Boyer on two songs. In performance, the band plays originals, Brazilian music (some modern choros and some Hermeto Pascoal tunes), and a mix of "personalized" jazz & pop standards. Each of the musicians has a long history of performance and recording in a wide variety of styles: jazz, Caribbean, Brazilian, rhythm & blues. Free admission. Bring your blanket or lawn chair and picnic while enjoying the entertainment. In the event of rain, the performance will be held in the Karen Hille Phillips Concert Hall on the PLU campus.
