Jazz On The Lawn Returns To Stewart Street Park All Five Sundays In August:

The 10th annual Jazz on the Lawn summer concert series returns to Santa Monica’s Stewart Street Park on all five Sunday afternoons in August.

Presented by Santa Monica Cultural Affairs, the free family-friendly concerts draw people of all ages who come to dance, picnic, relax, and enjoy lively music in the park each Sunday from 5 pm to 7 pm.

This year’s music line-up features: the Nate Birkey Quintet on Aug. 2, an exuberant tribute band dedicated to the legendary artistry of Miles Davis and Chet Baker; Estaire Godinez on Aug. 9, a sensational vocalist and percussionist who fuses jazz and funk with the sounds and traditions of Latin and Brazilian music; Louie Cruz Beltran on Aug. 16, an extraordinary conguero, timbalero and vocalist who blends Afro-Cuban rhythms with jazz, pop, and R&B; the California Feetwarmers on Aug. 23, a band of entertaining musicians who breathe new life into the old-time sound of Ragtime, swing, and New Orleans jazz.; and on Aug. 30, Brasil Brazil plays popular Brazilian melodies with a variety of vivacious rhythms and explosive sound.

To complement the eclectic music line-up, concertgoers can sample cuisine from a variety of food trucks each week.

On Aug. 2, The Grilled Cheese Truck offers savory and sweet versions of the classic comfort food, Dogtown Dogs serves hotdogs, an all American favorite, and Chunk-n-Chip sells ice cream sandwiches made from premium, locally sourced ingredients.
