Pasadena Pavilion

Pasadena Pavilion LogoFor the past year+ I have had the pleasure of working with the team at the Pasadena Pavilion in Memorial Park – Pasadena, CA. As host I have gotten to meet so many great people on the lawn in the community. In addition, the musical talent that I’ve had the opportunity to share the stage with has always been of the highest caliber. I’m talking Grammy award winning musicians, legendary artists with sold out albums and tours, and just down right good live music.

However, I’ve always wished I’d be able to see and introduce a band/musician that I personally know and have been following. Every year when the summer concert series starts, I post and I hear the pleas to get on stage. But by that point the schedule has been printed in LA Weekly and there is nothing I, nor any staff member, could really do to alter the schedule. I always tell you, January/February, they are looking for talent and building the schedule. Get your name in then. So here I am, telling you, Get Your Name In!

Here’s some info about the Pavilion to make sure it’s a fit for you. And then following, I’ll let you know what we need from you.

Also, please note, this is not a confirmation of my return as host or employment at any capacity with the Pavilion. I do not have any details of the 2018 season at all except what is public on their Facebook page. I am simply trying to help out my local music community by getting information into their hands.
