Brasswood California/ Beats 4 Peace on Sunday Nov. 27, 2022 2:30 at Venice Beach Skate Park

The Modjeska Club is pleased to invite all members and friends for an outing to Venice Beach for an outdoor concert by the Rebel Babel Ensemble of Poland with an international array of musicians. The concert called The Brasswood California/Beats 4 Peace will be held in Venice, CA on Sunday, November 27th, 2022 at 2:30 to 3:30 at Venice Beach Skate Park, address: 1500 Ocean Front Walk, Los Angeles, CA 90291-3606. The outdoor concert will be followed by a move to High Rooftop Lounge in Hotel Erwin, 1697 Pacific Avenue, Venice, Los Angeles, CA 90291-3613, where the musicians will perform to 5:00pm. A great way to spend time outdoors on the beach, after all this overeating and holiday-ing. . . 

As the organizers write: "This incredible event aims to promote, expand and cultivate the cooperation of musicians from Poland, USA, Ukraine and other countries at the artistic and educational level. It will be a Californian mini-edition of the European Brasswood Fest, which is organized in the magical forests in Sopot by Rebel Babel Ensemble and its artistic director Łukasz L.U.C. Rostkowski - composer, rapper, music producer."

"Join us as artists from Poland, USA, Canada, Ukraine and other countries come together to play the most important peace songs and tributes in jazz-hip-hop arrangements. The day will feature interpretations of music compositions by John Coltrane and Bill Evans, Polish composers as Krzysztof Komeda, Łukasz Rostkowski and jazz versions of hip-hop pieces by Beyonce, The Black Eyed Peas and Queen Latifa - U.N.I.T.Y."

The event will take place in two different locations – beginning at the Venice Beach Skate Park in Venice, CA, the brass band will perform in the park around the Skate Against Hate initiative, which will include a special appearance from Californian skater Brandon DesJarlais and Skate against Hate initiative. The band will then march from the park to the beautiful and scenic rooftop of the Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach, CA to cap off the day with a more relaxed atmosphere that will feature a DJ set and additional special performances.
