The Joint is Jumpin’ in Lawndale

Lawndale- The inaugural Lawndale Jazz and Blues Music Festival was held on September 14, 2013 from 1pm-7pm. Sponsored by the City of Lawndale and Guitar Center Southbay. The event was held outdoors at Lawndale Civic Center Plaza, 147th Street and Burin Ave.

It was a pleasant day, around 75 degrees with a nice breeze. This festival is a welcome addition to the festival circuit in the Southbay with the demise of the Long Beach Blues Festival. This festival has the potential to grow and be held at a large venue with people willing to pay to attend.

The perfect weather on Sunday, August 11th complimented the remarkable music shared by the RCM trio at the American Legion in Culver City. It was memorable tribute to a group of men from the Montford Point Marines, all part of an All African-American Regiment who served during World War II. They were largely unrecognized, and in the face of racism, prejudice, emotional and mental mistreatment, proved themselves loyal and fit for action. They laid down their lives for their country valiantly serving in Guam, Saipan, Tinian, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Japan and China.

Imagine a journey which takes you to the deepest back woods Juke Joint just west of the Mississippi. This is a venue that breathes and exhales the very essence of Jazz. What a Spiritual Haven and fortress from a hot summer day in L.A.

The elegant affair was dripping in the Blues, Soul, and Jazz. During this expedition you are serenaded by an angelic voice. Throughout the afternoon this angel’s halo was often tilted…just a tad, depending on the mood of the tune. She performed with sass, brass, and fervor. She is known as that "St. Louis Woman", the One and Only Denise Thimes.
