It probably goes without saying that most people have been starved for live musical entertainment over these last few socially restricted months – but we’ll say it anyway.
So most reading this will probably welcome a new collaboration between the Irvine Barclay Theatre and Bayside Restaurant.
The two have joined forces to serve up “Summer Jazz Lunch @Bayside” at the Newport Beach venue every Saturday through September 26. It’s a series that, according to spokespeople from both the Barclay and Bayside, “gives patrons a chance to experience ‘dining as art’ on the patio at Bayside Restaurant in Newport Beach.”
The series was launched on Aug. 15 with a sold-out performance by the Sara Gazarek Quartet and was followed a week later by Eric Marienthal, also sold out. Upcoming performers include jazz organist, pianist and composer Akiko Tsuruga and local favorites John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton.
