Once a month or so, the highly talented band, Full Spectrum Jazz, performs at the Los Gatos Lodge. Over the summer they played at Jazz on the Plazz in Los Gatos, so you may be familiar with them already. This is a local group, and a few members are even residents of the town of Los Gatos. Their next performance there will be in the evening of October 15th (please check the schedules online at the band’s website and the Lodge’s website).
Full Spectrum Jazz plays a variety of jazz styles, and at times also employ a vocalist. When we were there in mid-September, Duane Lawrence joined them for part of each set. Duane has a beautiful voice & is an enthusiastic singer – the two complimented each other very well.
Below are some photos I took in mid-September. Unfortunately the lighting was such that members to the far left and far right were not too well illuminated, so my apologies that a number of band members and Duane Lawrence are not in these pics (they just didn’t turn out). Come check them out for yourself two weeks from now! (There’s no cover charge and drinks & munchies are reasonably priced.)
The Los Gatos Lodge is located at 50 Los Gatos – Saratoga Road, Los Gatos, California. (Los Gatos-Saratoga Road is also known as Highway 9) It is just east of Highway 17, between the freeway and Los Gatos Boulevard. There’s plenty of parking too.
