Your Guide to Friday Night Jazz at LACMA

Summer has almost arrived in Los Angeles and with it comes the return of free Friday night jazz at LACMA.


One of my longtime favorite things to do on a Friday evening, Jazz at LACMA features the art of jazz by an impressive and diverse roster of Southern California musicians. Celebrating over twenty years at LACMA, the program continues to be one of the museum’s most popular offerings.


Free world class music from 6-8 pm in the courtyard every Friday. Bring a bottle, some wine, and cheese and gather with friends. Or, book a table before or after the show at the delicious Ray’s and Stark Bar. You can sit near the band in folding chairs or further back in the grass. The iconic LACMA lights are about to go dark for a couple months, so now is the perfect time to get your Instagram shots.


Jazz at LACMA is a celebration of L.A.’s finest jazz musicians and has featured such legends as Wayne Shorter, John Clayton, Kenny Burrell, Les McCann, Billy Childs, Arturo Sandoval, Cannonball-Coltrane Project, and Ernie Watts. Over 42,000 visitors attend the program annually from April through November.
