United States
Announces Move To Cultural Arts & Music Center with Exclusive Summer Concerts featuring Poncho Sanchez, Trini Lopez, Freda Payne, Herb Jeffries, Brian Auger, David Arkenstone, Arthur Rand & the Ink Spots, Ray Brown, Jr., and much more, in Honor of Ella Fitzgerald

TEMECULA, Calif., 12 May 2010 — July 9, 10 and 11, 2010, the 7th annual Temecula Valley International Jazz Festival, located in the Southern California Wine Country City of Temecula, has announced a change of venue from Main St. in Old Town, to the new Home of the Chuck Niles Memorial Jazz Library and the Temecula Valley Cultural Arts & Music Center at 27455 Tierra Alta Way. This year’s festival is in honor of the “first lady of song,” Ella Fitzgerald. Tributes to Ella include performances by Herb Jeffries, Freda Payne, Arthur Rand & the Ink Spots, Ray Brown Jr., and Keith Droste Trio, with one of Canada’s finest bassists, Rene’ Worst. Headlining the 2010 Festival is GRAMMY Award winner Poncho Sanchez. More than anything, Sanchez is a storyteller.
