Valencia Jazz & Blues series enters final week

The 20th annual Valencia Jazz & Blues concert series celebrates its final music-filled summer night Friday, featuring Teresa James & the Rhythm Tramps.

Teresa James was nominated for a Grammy Award this year, and together, the band creates a blend of rockin’ Texas blues mixed with some New Orleans funk, according to Barbara Myler, owner and producer of the concert series.

“We want to throw a huge dance party to close our 20th anniversary celebration,” Myler said. 

In addition to the music, D’Wilfri DanceArt & Entertainment will be back to host a floor show during intermission, Myler added.

City officials as well as members from the SCV Chamber of Commerce are also scheduled to be in attendance for a special presentation, Myler said.

The Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series is scheduled for its final night 7 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, at the Westfield Valencia Town Center, located at 24250 Town Center Drive.
