Our Private Tour Looks Close at the Hollywood Bowl
We are only a month away from the start of the 2016 Hollywood Bowl Season. The kickoff event is always the Playboy Jazz Festival hosted once again this year by the hilarious George Lopez. This two-day event brings to this historic location the best music and the best people to enjoy an ongoing feast of sounds in beautiful Los Angeles weather. Less than a week later the official opening of the Bowl will be an evening with Steely Dan and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Enjoying a concert is this grand outdoor facility (a city park in actuality) is fun for the music and for the opportunity to be somewhere where people have been gathering under cloudless skies for almost 100 years. There is even the Hollywood Bowl Museum that we take our private Los Angeles tour guests to visit. Everybody who is anyone in the musical world feels wildly fortunate to be invited to entertain at this venue. But music comes in many forms and in a neighborhood famous for creating film blockbusters you must consider coming here for a movie sing-a-long. The first is at the end of June – the Sound of Music sing-a-long. Itself an annual event (one of Hollywood’s favorite things) the audience comes dressed in lederhosen and habits, full Austrian attire, and with picnic baskets filled with foods suitable for an outing in the Tyrolian Alps. This is just the start of a summer full of classical, ethnic, country, rock ‘n roll and special events. We love our summers when the Hollywood Hills are alive with the sound of music.
