Join us at the beautiful Playhouse plaza for a free outdoor summer concert featuring Louie Cruz Beltran and his Jazz Ensemble.
Louie has delighted crowds at a host of venues including the Hollywood Bowl, Gibson Amphitheater, Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, and Dodger Stadium. He’s shared the stage with greats such as Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, and Natalie Cole. Louie performs regularly at Catalina’s Jazz Club and Vibrato in Los Angeles and is a perennial hit on the Playhouse Plaza. Enjoy a fun-filled night of great grooves and positive energy with Louie and his ensemble of amazing musicians.
