Jazz enthusiasts, jazz newcomers, even jazz doubters—get ready to delight in the phat (“cool, tight, awesome”) sounds of Gordon Goodwin’s Little Phat Band on Thursday, September 24, at 8 pm at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

The Ventura Music Festival’s 2nd live, drive-in car concert presents  “the best jazz band out there today” known for its great arrangements and great tunes, all performed at maximum “hilarity with a dusting of insanity.”

Band leader Gordon Goodwin—a gifted and creative pianist and explosive, ‘kick butt’ sax player—is a composer and arranger with absolutely no limit of musical styles and a larger-than-life reputation in the music industry with such clients as Disney, Warner Brothers and Spielberg and innumerable musicians.

Don’t miss this concert, a surefire cure for end-of-summer “phatigue.”


DETAILS: Online tickets only at Doors open at 6:30 pm. Portable restrooms, but no concessions so bring your own refreshments. The 75 minute concert audio is delivered through each car’s FM radio, or Wi-Fi.
