Oh man – we are so excited about this!

For one historic Sunday, Los Gatos’ own Paul Kent is bringing together his favorite musicians from the South Bay’s best bands to create a new Los Gatos Music in the Park tradition: The Los Gatos Music in the Park All Stars.

For this one concert, Paul has assembled outstanding musicians and vocalists from bands including:

  • The Houserockers
  • Sage
  • The Groove Kings
  • Long Train Runnin’
  • The Garage Band
  • The Cruzers
  • The Cocktail Monkeys
  • The Johnny Neri Band, and
  • Chrome Deluxe

Make no mistake – this is not a group jam! This is an all star musical smorgasbord. A multi-course gourmet musical extravaganza.

What will they play? Who specifically will be onstage?
What songs?

Puh – leeze! It’s too much fun to tease you with this, so we’re not givin’ it up that easily.

But we WILL tell you this: It will be a one-of-a-kind special day of music that will happen ONLY at Los Gatos Music in the Park. And, it will be talked about for a long time after it happens.

This will truly be history – and fun – in the making! Don’t miss it!

Extra Large, perennial winners of “Best Band in Santa Cruz,” (and featuring former Los Gatos High teachers Russ and Valerie Leal), will have Los Gatos groovin’ to their upbeat funk, fun-in-the-sun reggae, and classic California rock vigor. The perfect soundtrack for “throw your hands in the air” fun!

Extra Large create a sound and a vibe that’s unique to them, and guaranteed to make you smile and bounce. Much of their music is original, and they take music from the likes of: Bobby Brown, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ozomatli, G. Love, Rose Royce, Justin Timberlake, The Rascals, and more – and make that their own too!

So Sunday, July 31st is going to be an Extra Large day in Los Gatos!

Insatiable Tribute to Prince

The Purple Ones are an exceptionally fun 11-piece tribute to Prince. Formed in 2012, they headlined at the top Northern California Prince memorial concerts following his recent passing, and regularly headline top private events and clubs (Bimbo’s 365 Club, Slim’s, RockBar Theater, etc.) in Northern California.

The musical dexterity of The Purple Ones – with 11 pieces on stage including a full horn section – completely turns the concept of a Prince tribute band on its head.

Not a typical tribute band with a Prince impersonator, The Purple Ones speak Prince’s musical language of energy, rhythm, creativity, and a serious dose of unadulterated funk.

The newest member of The Purple Ones is Levi Seacer Jr., the former Musical Director and lead guitarist/bassist of Prince’s band “New Power Generation.” Levi also collaborated with Prince as a songwriter and Co-Producer on his projects.

The Purple Ones feature a stage show that will have you hooked in minutes, a full horn section, and all-star musicians from bands including Foreverland, Superdiamond, Pacific Mambo Orchestra (winners of a 2014 Grammy), Huey Lewis and the News, and more.

Come party like it’s 1999 with The Purple Ones as they play Prince, Sheila E., Sheena Easton, and Morris Day and the Time hits like: Kiss, I Would Die 4 U, Purple Rain, 1999, Baby I’m A Star, Let’s Go Crazy, It’s Gunna Be A Beautiful Night, The Glamorous Life, U Got The Look, and Jungle Love.
