10th Ever Los Angeles Old Time Social
Friday, May 15, 2015
8 o'clock pm
Tickets $20

Join us in celebrating Day 2 of the 10th Los Angeles Old Time Social! The Velaslavasay Panorama hosts the Friday concert, part of the 4-day fest celebrating Old Time music and sociability.

The lineup includes:

The Gallus Brothers

Gallus Bros.

The Gallus Brothers sound like a record collection found in the basement of a retired acrobat with a penchant for good old fashioned blues. Devin Champlin savagely syncopates on a reso-phonic guitar, while Lucas Hicks amps it up by playing percussion on a suitcase full of bones, bells and antique tomfoolery. Both are talented multi-instrumentalists and their sets are a mix of country blues, old tin pan alley songs, mandolin and fiddle tunes, and a dash of danger by way of acrobatic antics. 

Beverly Smith & John Grimm

Beverly Smith & John Grimm come from Dahlonega, Lumpkin County, Georgia. Since 2010 John and Beverly have been performing together at festivals, concerts, workshops and dances across the country and abroad. Their performances feature traditional country duets, fiddle tunes and originals.

Riley Baugus, Sabra Guzman, Trevor & Travis Stuart

and house band
The Happy Neighbor Club
Happy Neighbor

The Happy Neighbor Club loves getting together to explore old-time string band traditions from obscure corners of the globe. The members, all from the greater Los Angeles area, have been playing music since the 1960s in various configurations. Expect to hear an exotic mix of Mexican paso dobles, Hawaiian marches, Italian polkas, Texas rags, Puerto Rican mazurkas, and even a Finnish hummpa.
