The Crescent Katz, a five-piece traditional jazz band from Sacramento, will play a free outdoor concert on Thursday, July 23, 7:00–8:30 p.m. at the Rotary Park Gazebo, on Main Street at Railroad Avenue, in front of the Community Center in Winters.
The Katz combine the musical styles of New Orleans, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco to bring the music of a past generation to today’s audiences. Made up of a stripped-down and acoustically solid rhythm section of banjo, tuba and washboard, and with a brassy front line of trumpet and trombone, the band wails in the stompy New Orleans style (even if they’re tackling disco tunes or Star Wars melodies).
The performance is part of the Winters Friends of the Library summer concert series. The series concludes with Arann Harris and the Bad Farmers playing the funkiest farm songs anywhere on July 30.
Invite your friends and neighbors, bring a blanket or lawn chairs or sit on the grass, sip a cool drink, and enjoy some fine live music on a summer evening. The Friends of the Library will have delicious refreshments and quality used books for sale, and all proceeds will support the Winters Library.

We hope to see you there!
