101st Army Dixieland Band (7 pm – 9 pm)
The 101st Army Dixieland Band is a component of the local Army National Guard and the larger 101st Army Band. These soldiers specialize in performing traditional jazz, and they have played in many festivals including the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Monterey Jazz Bash by the Bay, and the San Diego Jazz Fest.
French Toast (5:30 – 7 pm)
French Toast presents a repertoire based on the work and style of jazz great Jean “Django” Reinhardt (1910-1953). Django had a unique approach to the guitar and gathered some of the finest jazz musicians in Paris during the 1930s to establish a style that came to be known as Gypsy Swing. French Toast also throws in some American jazz standards for this all-ages concert that will have you swaying along.
