Playboy Jazz in Beverly Hills

Playboy Jazz in Beverly Hills will feature The New Jump Blues with Antonio Vargas. Be sure to join us for a post-concert Happy Hour Meet & Greet at the charming Coupa Cafe.

The New Jump Blues is one of the most exciting, foot-stomping musical acts to leap onto the national stage in years.  This tight combo of veteran musicians brings new energy to a style that has its roots in the swing era, blending uptempo elements of blues and jazz, while adding touches of calypso. The jump blues is an offshoot of the big-band swing era, featuring smaller ensembles with rousing horns and irresistible rhythms. The band has helped spark a revival of the style with rousing performances at the Hollywood & Highland Summer Jazz Concert Series, the Central Ave Jazz Festival and other venues.

Refreshments available for purchase. No glass containers, alcoholic beverages. Two hours free parking. 21 and over.

 

HAPPY HOUR MEET & GREET

After the concert join us for Happy Hour Meet & Greet at Coupa Cafe. Coupa features a large outdoor seating area in a tropical garden setting with an exotic water fountain where sidewalk seating is ideal for people watching. The Happy Hour menu offers Venezuelan specialties such as arepitas, cachapas and tequenos. Happy Hour specials include wine starting at $6, beer from $4, and tasty food items starting at $6. Coupa is a short walk from the plaza and is located at 419 N. Canon Dr. Phone:[masked]-0420. Nearby lots offer 2 hours free parking.

    My car is inoperable so I will not be able to attend. :( I trust that my spot will be a blessing for someone on the waiting list.

  • DENA

    I went to the BHJazz website and it states the event is free. Can I just take my chances & meet everyone at the designated spot at 2:30. I think everybody should either wear red or bring a red balloon~

    May 4, 2013

    • Lionel

      Absolutely not. We have too many people going to this small venue as it is. Do not wear red or bring balloons. We do not want to make a spectacle of ourselves. If anyone on the Waitlist shows up anyway you will be kicked out.

    • DENA

      oh~ok..sorry! See ya all next time

    GOING TO HAPPY HOUR? When 53 people show up at a restaurant all at the same time things tend to slow down. Please be patient. It's not your servers fault, it's not the bartenders fault. PLEASE BRING *CASH* --it will expedite things. Thanks for your understanding.

    We understand. See you next time. Does anyone have any info on the free and discounted L.A. Disney Concert Hall philharmonic events? We went once on a Friday afternoon and sat behind the orchestra.

    How do we get notified about the wait list and guess we should wait to get tickets till then. Any news on the wait list.

    1 · May 1, 2013

  • Lionel

    We are meeting up at 2:30 SHARP! Not 2:35, not 2:45. We will go in AS SOON AS the doors open. I visited the plaza today. It's smaller than I remember; and it will fill up. Don't be late--the view from the parking lot sucks. If there are no objections I'm gonna change the Happy Hour to Coupa Cafe--I like the vibe better. And that's what it's all about... the VIBE, right??? LOL!

      You had me at "arepas." Can I bring my own Cheez Whiz and hot sauce?

    ATTENTION WAITLIST: if you do not get into this event...

    SAVE THE DATE -- JUNE 2

    There will be another Playboy Jazz concert this time in LA with the extraordinary Patrice Rushen headlining! As the venue is much larger than the BH Plaza, there will be no Waitlist.

    • Babette

      Patrice Rushen!!!! Oh, yeah.

      April 29, 2013

    • Lionel

      Annette is supposed to host this. IF YOU WANT TO GO SEE PATRICE RUSHEN then you need to post a request here http://www.meetup.com...­

    The plaza is small. Without a limit this group would take every seat and Hugh Hefner would get pissed. If you are on the Waitlist and you show up anyway you'll be deleted from LAFC. It's unfair to those who honor the Waitlist.
