The Los Gatos Community Foundation is hosting their first free community music event in Oak Meadow Park at the site of the historic Lyndon Bandstand right now, with two KFOX Radio Last Band Standing Contest winners due to perform before the event wraps up at 10 p.m.
OTR, a classic rock/R&B band and KFOX Radio Last Band Standing Contest winners in 2009 and The Houserockers, a ten-member rock & soul band and 2010 Last Band Standing winners, are headlining the event this evening designed to raise funds for the new Los Gatos Youth Sports Park Snack Shack.
“We knew that the upcoming sports park needed a snack shack,” said Mary Tomasi-Dubois, fundraising chair person and LGCF Board Member. “And because we are community foundation – community oriented – we said 50 percent of our funds that we raise today are going to be dedicated to that snack shack.”
The event kicked off at 2 p.m. today with performances by 5606, a local pop-punk band, James Robinson, an acoustic fusion solo artist and local favorite Neil Hogan, an acoustic finger picking style musician.
Sponsors for the event include KFOX, M.E. and Michael E. Fox Family Foundation, Sweeney, Mason, Wilson, and Bosomworth, Restaurant James Randall, Rock Tape, A Place for Teens, and Los Gatos Lion’s Club.
