Get ready for the sounds of live Jazz and Blues bands to once again fill Town Center Drive in Valencia. Established 19 years ago, the series will once again feature regional, national and international entertainers in a quaint street party setting while offering interactive activities for adults and children.

This year’s series will run every Friday night beginning June 15 – Aug. 3.
Hours for the concerts will be 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. The events will take place in the street on town Center Drive at McBean Parkway, adjacent to the Hyatt Regency Valencia.

On July 6, internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Tony Galla, featuring Mark LeVang, will take to the stage for the third installment of the series.

Tony Galla Bio: Tony Galla was discovered in Buffalo, New York by renowned disc jockey Joey Reynolds, recording his first hit single, In Love (Swan Records). Climbing quickly up the Billboard charts, In Love became a national cult hit in the U.S. and throughout the UK and Europe, where it currently remains a popular hit. Heavily influenced by the soulful sounds of artists like B.B. King and Ray Charles, Tony developed his own bluesy sound and unique passionate style quickly becoming the lead singer of the blues band, Raven. After releasing their first album, Live at the Inferno (Discovery), rock legend Jimi Hendrix helped Raven land a recording contract with Clive Davis and Columbia Records, releasing a second album, Raven and the single, Feeling Good. Soon Tony could be found jamming into the wee hours of the night with Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin at local nightclubs in New York City. Tony toured extensively with Raven gaining worldwide attention and opening for prominent groups like Joe Cocker, Led Zeppelin, Procol Harem, The Byrds, The Young Rascals, Blood Sweat and Tears, Three Dog Night, B.B. King, Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy.

Mark LeVang Bio: Born into a musical family, SCV’s Mark LeVang is a well-recognized and brilliantly dedicated musician husband, father. As the son of a successful studio guitarist, Mark learned at an early age on how to make a business out of music. After honing his craft while enlisted in the United States Air Force Band Mark returned to Los Angeles to make his way through the many avenues and alleyways of the local music scene. From all indications, this has worked brilliantly for him. Mark’s talents as a multi-faceted recording keyboardist composer/arranger and musical director have created a unique brand that transcends every venue, from Motion Picture Scoring Stages to ‘High Society’ Events Worldwide. “Firstly, I am a steward to the music,” Mark states. It is with that dedication to the music coupled with his love of client service that has kept Mark LeVang at the top of his game for over two decades. Mark’s motto: “Cultivate New Experiences!~”
