SANTA MONICA—Patrons should expect to have a grand time when the Santa Monica Public Library opens its doors on Saturday, August 3, to the Big Town Seven and its sonic palette for the library's Al Fresco Summer Concert series.


The library is promising a swinging hour to the rhythms of Big Town, and it's inviting patrons to embrace the rich sonic landscape either by sitting and listening or dancing as the six member combo play vintage dance music from the 1930s through the 1950s. Those interested in taking up the library's invitation should arrive prior to the show's scheduled 12:00 p.m. performance, which is expected to end by 1:00 p.m.


Guests of all ages are invited to join in the festivities. The event will be held in the main library's north courtyard on 601 Santa Monica Boulevard; the courtyard itself is open air and smoke free. Patrons should expect no entrance fee.


The band's website, run by Jean Paul Monsché Music Services, demonstrates commitment to the bygone era by outfitting the group in Swing-style 1940s gangster suits and white dinner jackets, while describing the Big Town Seven as an energetic combo that “looks as hot as it sounds and will turn any venue into an authentic time capsule bringing back glorious moments of American music for your utmost enjoyment.”


Seating is limited, so patrons should plan accordingly. The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible. For special disabled services, call Library Administration at (310) 458-8606 at least one week prior to event. Those wanting more information on Santa Monica Public Library programs, visit smpl.orgor contact the library at (310) 458-8600.
