Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Church Saint Vincent De Paul Catholic Church In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the death of African-American composer and pianist Scott Joplin, local composer and Jazz Pianist Scott Larrabee will be performing part three of his four part recital series "Scott Plays Scott" showcasing the entire Scott Joplin Catalogue. With narration by Baritone Michael Allen Gray, this Storytelling Recital transports us back to the birth of Ragtime and how it changed American Music forever. Performance starts at 7:00 PM and there will be a freewill offering to benefit "Sr. Angela’s Assistance Program for the Poor". Scott Joplin Background Dubbed the "King of Ragtime", Scott Joplin was an African-American composer and pianist. Joplin achieved fame for his ragtime compositions and was dubbed the "King of Ragtime". During his brief career, he wrote 44 original ragtime pieces, one ragtime ballet, and two operas. One of his first, and most popular pieces, the "Maple Leaf Rag", became ragtime's first and most influential hit, and has been recognized as the archetypal rag. Born in the late 1860s somewhere along the border between Texas and Arkansas, Scott Joplin took up the piano as a child and eventually became a travelling musician as a teen. He immersed himself in the emerging musical form known as ragtime and became the genre’s foremost composer with tunes like "The Entertainer," "Solace" and "The Maple Leaf Rag," which is the biggest-selling ragtime song in history. Joplin also penned the operas Guest of Honor and Treemonisha. He died in New York City on April 1, 1917. Scott Joplin's exact date of birth and location is not known, though it is estimated that he was born between the summer of June 1867 and January 1868. Born to Florence Givens and Giles Joplin, Scott grew up in Texarkana, a town situated on the border between Texas and Arkansas. The Joplins were a musical family, with Florence being a singer and banjo player and Giles a violinist; Scott learned how to play the guitar at a young age and later took to the piano, displaying a gift for the instrument. Julius Weiss, a German music teacher who lived in Joplin's hometown, gave the young pianist further instruction. Joplin was also a vocalist and would play the cornet as well. Joplin left home during his teen years and began work as a travelling musician, playing in bars and dance halls where new musical forms were featured that formed the basis of ragtime, which had distinct, syncopated rhythms and a fusion of musical sensibilities. Joplin lived for a time in Sedalia, Missouri in the 1880s and in 1893 he fronted a band in Chicago during the World Fair. He later settled in Sedalia again while continuing to travel, with the waltzes "Please Say You Will" and "A Picture of Her Face" becoming his first two published songs. Viewed as the "King of Ragtime," Scott Joplin was the foremost composer of the genre in the early 20th century, known for works like "The Maple Leaf Rag" and "The Entertainer."CATEGORY: Live Music

We'll show you some basic steps and get you out on the dance floor in no time. Square dancing is probably NOT what you think it is.

Once you start, you'll probably find that you're hooked.CATEGORY: Community Events

A disciple of Eddie Vedder (think Vitalogy-era fuck-you-to-Ticketmaster tour), Bruce Springsteen (rabid and ready to go on Born to Run), and Jack White (Coachella 2015 when Mondo Cozmo’s wife turned to him and, “Do you think Jack White gives a fuck what his bass player thinks?”)- Thus the Philadelphia-born, Los Angeles-based Mohawk-ed and tattooed troubadour Mondo Cozmo was born.
Think….Dylan fronting Oasis with Beck making the beats. Mondo Cozmo has the attitude of the Manchester bands of the 90s… Working class, honest, inspirational, cautiously hopeful, and socially observational. It is a bold statement demanding attention: Future festival headliner who will have the crowd singing along to every word while the sun is setting and challenging everything you know about music in the process.
Mondo Cozmo by Mondo Cozmo
I am East Los Angeles but originally from Philly.
I am not sure if I graduated high school
I can be soulful one moment and screaming Sixes and Sevens the next.
I am the guy who orders 2 beers whenever I go into a bar and I pick up the phone whenever my mom calls.
I want to do whatever I want.
I want to connect with everyone. There is no demographic.

The roots of BLACK UHURU were formed in Kingston Jamaica’s Waterhouse district also known as “Firehouse” in the early 60′s. Though considered to be one of Jamaica’s toughest neighborhoods it’s home to several other reggae singers and musicians. It was where Duckie Simpson grew up and learned to sing from boyhood friends Winston “Pipe” Matthews and Lloyd “Bread” McDonald of Wailing Souls and Bob Marley. He recorded four tracks with Wailing Souls before forming his own group.CATEGORY: Live Music
