Saturday 8/14: Free concert! Big Bad Voodoo Daddy in Irvine

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy  August 14, 2010 Time(s): 8:00 p.m.
Location: Balloon Park | Map and Directions
Free Admission, Parking $10

Last summer “America’s favorite little big band” delivered the most well-attended and rapturously received show of the Great Park’s concert season.

That’s pretty much standard operating procedure for the swinging septet. Whether playing Council Bluffs, Iowa or Disney Hall on New Year’s Eve, the Los Angeles-based, globe-spanning Big Bad Voodoo Daddy puts its all into its high-energy, horn-driven music. Their wowed audiences have included a Super Bowl halftime crowd, anyone who has seen the movie Swingers, and three US presidents. But those who attended last year’s Great Park show will tell you the BBVD is best enjoyed under the stars on a beautiful Southern California night.

Have DINNER WITH DAVE at 10 pm (Live music AND get a Free dinner!)

Dinner with Dave is a 100% free event with a complimentary light dinner at Memphis at the Santora in the Santa Ana Art District AND live music.

The event kicks off with a DJ at 9 PM, then the live band and dinner start at 10 PM. It is a bit of a late start, but it's F-R-E-E. With that said, arrive early and enjoy a drink at their bar (optional). This is a great group date idea for 21+

The single-course dinner is served buffet style and according to many Yelp reviewers, Memphis at the Santora is yum! Parking is free here, either on the street or at a parking lot a block away.

Wow...Free food, no cover AND free parking! What a deal!

So mark your calendar for every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month (yes, it's bi-monthly!!).

Due to the high intensity of customer traffic, we strongly recommend:
That you come in on earlier days, Tuesday or Wednesday, to fully enjoy the event as it gets real crazy toward the last day, Thursday; That you call in for take-out orders at least an hour ahead of time (many have even called in the day before in the past!); And that if you dine in, check with your Curry House location on its altered operation hours daily and try to be there early.
We hope we'll see you at your local Curry House restaurant during this special event.
