Tonight, Friday, July 2 at the Lexus of Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series, a special tribute will take place to honor our military and specifically, the most recent local fallen soldiers from our community: Jake Suter and Ian Gelig.

Hours for the concerts are 7 PM until 9:30 PM. The events take place on Town Center Drive and McBean Parkway in the heart of Valencia.

It is customary to take a break at 8:15 pm for raffle prizes, etc. At the beginning of this break, The Ventura Girlz, will sing patriotic songs while the ladder truck from Fire Station 126 raises a special commemorative American flag. A moment of silence will follow.

The Ventura Girlz are a popular teenage musical performance group of two sets of sisters with an impressive resume of performances including stage (Broadway, Pantages, etc.), national commercials and co-starring roles in ABC's Samantha Who and Desperate Housewives.

The Lexus of Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series continues to be one of the most popular summer concert series in Valencia for the past 12 years, bringing live Jazz and Blues bands every Friday night through August 27, 2010.

The Concert Series features regional, national and international entertainers in a quaint street party setting while offering interactive activities for adults and children. Each week, a local charity is chosen to benefit from a portion of the proceeds from the event.

Tonight, the featured band is Teresa James & the Rhythm Tramps - Nominee for Contemporary Female Blues Vocalist of the Year.

In addition to the extraordinary sounds offered from some of the top Jazz and Blues recording artist in the world, the scheduled series will bring a variety of food and beverages, including wine and beer for the adults.

No pets or outside food or beverages are allowed. Admission is free.

The LEXUS of Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series is produced by Summit West Public Relations & Marketing - a full service Public Relations & Marketing firm. For more information regarding the series or sponsorship opportunities, call Barbara Myler at (661) 290-2911.
