Fine arts, fine crafts, fine music

Ray Butler on keys

When I showed off a photo of Robert the parakeet a few days ago, I skimmed over the rest of Summit’s Festival of Fine Arts and Crafts (which happened this past Sunday, 6/28/12).

(Just for the record, I did not mean to imply that the best part of the festival was a little green parakeet. [Tho’ he was pretty darn cute.])

In addition to several streetfuls of white sun-shielding tents, each with its own vendor of arts or crafts, the festival featured several musical groups; each played hour-long sets directly in front of the train station. Being an active trombone player myself, I couldn’t help but stop and smile at outdoor live jazz!

This is the keyboardist (Ray Butler) from the West Hills Project, a small combo group— lots of Sinatra charts, lots of fun! They alternated sets with the Tony DeMeo Orchestra, a classic big band— also with lots of Sinatra. (But never let it be said that I’m not a fan of Sinatra! 🙂 )
