On the eve of July 3rd, music industry regulars and fans alike gathered at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles for The Tribe’s 5th annual all-star charity concert, California Saga 2. Sponsors included U.S. Bank, 95.5KLOS, Norman’s Rare Guitars, L.A. Weekly, Los Angeles Daily News, Union Bank, Bridge Source, Regal Entertainment Group and Kathryn Barger.
This historic landmark building encompassing the Ace Hotel and event site boasts an impressive old-world inspired theater, bringing attendees back to the glamour of old Hollywood while viewing some of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s biggest legends take the stage.
Prior to the show, popular stars such as Rex Dean, Nicholas and Pamela Guest, Lauri Reimer and Rosemary Butler took to the carpet and spoke to the press about their excitement for the events, and anticipation for the show ahead.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame members David Crosby and Al Jardine took to the red carpet as well. They were soon joined by Grammy award winning guitarists Albert Lee and Laurence Juber, and critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Jesse Colin Young, all of whom would be headliners for the highly anticipated show.
After walking the carpets, guests and performers were ushered into the impressive lobby next to the theatre, where a silent auction took place. All proceeds from the impressive item list, that included several high ticket live auction items, all go to benefit our community’s most vulnerable citizens – children and families experiencing homelessness.
Musical Artist-Entertainer and Homelessness Activist Judith Owen co-hosted the concert as Master of Ceremonies, along with Derek Smalls, also a strong advocate for homelessness and a former member of the band formerly known as Spinal Tap; both also performed their original songs.
Through the power of music, the Tribe Band has once again revitalized the classic songs and music of California for their biggest concert yet! Guests were able to help make a significant difference this year’s efforts to benefit people experiencing homelessness.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Get Together Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in partnership with Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission and the Midnight Mission. These credible charities are committed to action and to making a difference in the community.
