The Peninsula Hotel presents Antonio Castillo de la Gala (singles)

ATTENTION: THIS EVENT IS CLOSED. NEXT PENINSULA EVENT IS ON APRIL 12. RSVP HERE http://www.meetup.com/losangelesfreeconcerts/events/173214752/

The Sexy Singles of LA Free Concerts will once again be gathering for cocktails, bites and of course the best live music with Antonio Castillo de la Gala tinkling the ivories at one of Beverly Hills' poshest destinations, the Peninsula. Whether you are new to Los Angeles or been here a while, you will make new friends as well as see familiar faces. It's ok to come by yourself--you won't be by yourself for long. You will be personally greeted and introduced to other singles. This event is part of the Piano Bar Rendezvous Series.

Castillo de la Gala entertains with classic songs rendered in a style rich in embellishment and filigree. Think "As Time Goes By," "Someone to Watch Over Me," "The Man I Love." Think Gershwin, Porter, Kern, tangos, Broadway, movies -- all elevated by masterly keyboard technique. This is music to fall in love by. With a 2,000-song repertoire committed to memory, he has amassed a fan base of philanthropists, captains of industry, kings, queens and movie stars.

The only AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five Star-rated hotel in Southern California every year since 1993, The Peninsula offers luxury accommodations nestled amongst lush tropical gardens in the heart of Beverly Hills.

    I was there around 6:30 one of the first there. A few of us found seats right by the entrance in the little banquet. People came over to us to chat so there were probably many more of us than you imagined. We were just spread out a bit. It was such a great evening, I didn't even feel the earthquake!

    I must have walked into a time warp. I got there late--9, but didn't see any of you. . .

    March 30, 2014

    • LaKisha M.

      My sister got their well after 9 and there were a dozen of LAFC members still in attendance. We were all in the piano room. For all who signed up, it wasn't a lot of us, but it was a cool mixer. There were two parties going on that night, so perhaps you were at the wrong one.

    I just tried to RSVP for the April 12 event at the Peninsula and found that I am on the Wait List again. I read in the notice section that those who were waitlisted on March 29, would be the first to be on the list to go on April 12. Why am I on the Wait List again?

    Am I in for the 28 ? I'm getting confuse

    March 24, 2014

    • Lionel

      Marcelle, I recommend our Peninsula event on April 12.

      March 25, 2014

    • Lionel

      Because there are other people ahead of you.

      March 28, 2014

  • Lionel

    Please keep in mind that MEN will be given priority on the Waitlist. The reason for the Waistlist in the first place is because the Peninsula will complain if too many people attend this event. If you are on the Waistlist and show up anyway that is inconsiderate and you will be kicked out of LAFC. If you don't get in this time you will have priority rsvp when we do this again in June--and the weather will be nicer :-)

    This is one of my favorite venues in town. Hotel Peninsula offers, single bars, and a live piano lounge by Antonio Castillo de la Gala, who plays the greatest hits and big-band.
    Come and join us by the piano, have a drink and sing with us, and fall in love all over again (at your own risk :))
