Don’t miss this special event for all ages!!
Park Hall is coming up on it’s 100th year anniversary, and they want you to know they are planning for at least another 100. With new staffing, a new trustee and a determination to build community, the hall is having a fundraiser on November 5th, 2022. Former Little People’s Repertory Theater actress turned singer-songwriter Taylor Rae will be coming home for this special event. The guitarist/singer/songwriter’s eclectic style traverses folk, R&B, jazz and blues. She says, “I call it ‘South & Roll’ – a blend of the earliest days of American music.” The NEXTie award-winning musician who now resides in Austin, TX is returning “to the place where it all started” for her career on the stage – Park Hall in Ben Lomond, CA. “Getting to play an event to raise money for restoration of the hall I grew up performing in feels like a full circle moment,” shares Taylor, who will be opening for local band Mokili Wa.
“Mokili Wa” means “World Listen” in Lingala and Lari, band leader Elie Mabanza’s native languages of the congo. Originally formed in 2019, the band wonderfully fuses Jazz and African influences, and is gaining popularity in and around Santa Cruz, CA. Elie shares, “We are thrilled to share the historic Park Hall stage with our great friend Taylor Rae. Please join us for a special evening in service of this longstanding cultural center for artists and performers.”
