A live, in-person show in a San Pedro theater! This is a great way to head back to “normal.” See details below, or go to the event page on the Grand Vision website. Audience will be limited to 40 people, distanced, of course. But, tables up front are available at $100 flat and can accommodate up to four people. I cannot wait! This show is part of the Roots & Rambles series, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts.
I’m so excited that I’ll be able to play the beautiful grand piano there, in addition to the couple of guitars that I’ll bring, while I share a crop of unreleased songs and some old favorites. We’ll also be filming this show, so it’s going to be a really special night! [Read more here]
Admission:Single Ticket: $22, Front Cabaret Table (up to 4 seats): $100
Age restrictions:All Ages/Licensed
Notes:This is a IN-PERSON Live Concert! Tickets are limited.
Grand Annex Roots & Rambles series features Los Angeles-based roots rock musicians who shine a light on the cultural influences of Americana.
The third Roots & Rambles concert features the prolific Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, Jason Luckett. His six albums and three independent EPs move combine folk with jazz, rock and world influences – in a personal style Jason calls groovy acoustic soul. “A tasty brew of pop, soul, and folk that’s both relaxed and infectiously danceable.”- Victory Review
Let’s create songs together. In 45 minutes, we’ll work together to find descriptive and emotional language that will convey a story or an idea. We’ll look at tricks of rhyme and expectations to add depth and create interest. We’ll look at how we can model our song on existing material and create something entirely new. This is part of the Roots and Rambles series for the Grand Vision Foundation and the Grand Annex. See details below and look here for info on the live show on June 18.

A show I hosted for a few months from All Saints Church in Pasadena.
"Sacred Jazz" – Studio ASC #9
An Episcopal Church probably isn’t the first place you’d associate with a good jazz concert. Christina Honchell and Dr. Josslyn Luckett break down why you should and why jazz is a conduit to spiritual liberation and cross-cultural connections.
Here are some links to further exploration on the topic of Sacred Jazz and some of the work mentioned in this episode:
