Venice Music Festival To Highlight Eclectic Mix Of LA’s Music Scene Today:

Venice will do what it does best today – bring together artistic expression and a sense of community at the Venice Music Festival.

Now in its 19th year, the festival features an eclectic mix of Los Angeles’ music scene.

But, it wouldn’t rally as many hearts if not for a good cause.

The festival benefits local non-profit Venice Community Housing Corporation, which helps low-income people stabilize their lives through non-profit affordable housing and comprehensive skills training.

A reservation-only Champagne Brunch will feature live jazz music by The Richard Glaser Band, gourmet dishes prepared by Off the Wall Catering, and champagne.

The brunch will begin at 11 a.m. at the Palms Court and tickets are $125 per person, which includes entry to the Venice Music Festival.

In the afternoon, the event will turn into a bigger celebration: the Venice Music Festival.

This year’s line-up features the Luminaries, a seven-piece, socially conscious hip hop band of emcees, poets, singers, and musicians from Venice; The 44’s, an electric blues-roots-rock band that includes “Tex” Nakamura (harmonica player for the funk band War); and Allensworth, a raw soul-funk band known for their high intensity live shows.

Delicious eats will include Mexican fare from Venice’s Casablanca, famous for their homemade tortillas, a wine and beer cash bar, and other refreshments. Additionally, a silent auction offers great deals on services, local wares, and one-of-a-kind experiences from local retailers, artists, and restaurants.

For more details or to purchase tickets at $10, visit www.vchcorp.org/vmf.
