Free Concert and VIP Cocktail Reception

The Los Angeles Chapter of the Yale Black Alumni Association ("YBAA") is pleased to invite members to a FREE outdoor concert and VIP pre-concert reception at Grand Performances in downtown Los Angeles! The VIP pre-concert reception includes wine in a private lounge with reserved seating.

This event is limited to twenty YBAA alumni as Grand Performances has graciously offered YBAA admission into the reception normally reserved for donors. YBAA would like to extend an invitation to dues-paid members of the Yale Club of Los Angeles. Alumni may only bring one guest. RSVP by noon on July 28th (firm responses only please; if you need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible so that other alumni can attend). RSVP to Heather Jones with your name and, if applicable, the name of your guest, at davishe@yahoo.com.

Performers: Bibi Tanga & The Selenites + Breakestra

From the Grand Performances website: “Experience the future of funk direct from Paris with singer, bassist and bandleader Bibi Tanga, whose sinuous basslines and wicked falsetto evoke a funky fusion of Prince and Cee Lo Green. Tanga and his band create a sound where Afro-futurism meets Curtis Mayfield and Fela Kuti jams with Sidney Bechet, all with a hint of Parisian chic. Composer/multi-instrumentalist Miles “Music Man” Tackett and his band remind us that the funk is still very much alive. Native to L.A., Breakestraweaves old school hip-hop breaks with the raw grooves and horns of 60’s soul/jazz/funk.”

Please visit www.grandperformances.org for more information about Grand Performance's free summer concerts. YBAA Los Angeles asks that you support the work of Grand Performances and its generosity in allowing YBAA free admission to the VIP reception by making a donation either online or at the concert. Donations of any amount are completely voluntary, but much appreciated and will hopefully foster future YBAA events of this nature.
