Jamz@Julian 2016- final concert thanks

Jamz@Julian 2016 went out with a great concert on Wednesday the 24th, with a large audience gathered to hear Gretchen Elise and Maurice Authentic Hayman- as well as to hear some of our very youngest neighbors honing their musical abilities with Gretchen’s “Great Basket o’ Instruments”….

We had a blast all summer long (and even had a couple DNC delegates from California drop by in July)….

Very special thanks to Brandon Krakowsky for organizing Jamz this year. This would not have been possible without him.

Food service was provided by Los Camaradas. Thanks to our sponsors Galit Abramovitz Winokur of Real Estate With Heart and Steven Zelinger of Law Office of Steven M. Zelinger, LLC.
