From Cooksie Kramer … here are a few details to be aware of:
1. Tickets will be available at the Door. But you should consider booking online to ensure your reservation because seating is limited and going fast.
2. Please arrive early we have a Super Trio performing in the foyer before the Concert at 7 pm, featuring Bob Hammer on the Keys (Bob Has played and arranged for Charles Mingus), Michael Barnett on Bass. (Michael has been Peter Nero’s Bassist for more than 18 years) and of course our own Lionel Kramer on his Yamahas.
3. Another reason for arriving early is that Parking in the building under the Theatre is also limited The first two hours are free, thereafter $2 per hour. However, the garage is monitored. To avoid a ticket, make certain to stop at the parking kiosk after you have parked your vehicle to print a receipt. Enter your stall number, select the appropriate time you anticipate being parked, print the receipt and leave it on the dash of your vehicle. As the Extravaganza will probably run more than 2 hours you will need to pay the extra charge of $2 per hour. There is also street parking beside and around the building
4. Finally another great reason for arriving early is that the Restaurant alongside the Theatre on the same level called La Bu La Authentic Sichuan Restaurant is offering 10% discount on your meal. Simply show your ticket and enjoy a great meal at 10% off!
