Abalone benefit dinner tickets on sale

Click here to purchase tickets

The arts in Pittsburg will benefit when the City of Pittsburg, Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce and Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame celebrate the 100th anniversary of Pittsburg’s oldest family-owned business, Lanzafame Furniture.

Pittsburg Community Theatre and the Pittsburg Community Band will also be beneficiaries of the event along with the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame.

Tickets are $55 or $50 for PEAHOF members for the April 25 dinner at the Pittsburg Elks Club, 200 Marina Blvd. Tables of 10 are available for $500. Dinner tickets also include tickets to the upcoming 2015 PEAHOF Induction Ceremony.

Camillo Lanzafame opened Lanzafame Furniture on Black Diamond Street in 1915, later moving to Railroad Avenue before building a new store in 1947 at its current location, 711 Railroad Ave. Camillo’s son, Delfo, later ran the store, which is now operated by his son, Chris.

The Lanzafame family has long been involved in the arts in Pittsburg. Camillo played briefly in the Pittsburg Municipal Band under the direction of PEAHOF inductee Emilio Civita. Both Delfo and Chris also played in the band.

Delfo was as widely known for his musical prowess as his furniture store. A versatile musician, he played in a number of local dance bands and was known for his collaborations on clarinet with accordionist Jim Riso. In addition, he was a violinist for the Vallejo Symphony Orchestra.

Chris is a long-time member of the Pittsburg Community Band and Los Medanos College Orchestra. He has played for a number of PCT musicals, several times with sons, Chris, Jeffrey and Robert. The family was awarded the coveted PCT Gypsy Coat in 2003 for its contributions to the musical ‘Deadwood Dick.’ Chris was the drum major for the University of California marching band, leading the band on a cross-country tour prior to its appearance in the U.S. Bicentennial Parade in Washington DC as the state of California’s official representative.

In addition to the City of Pittsburg and Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce, area businesses are joining in support of the special celebration.

Discovery Homes, which is supplying the abalone for the dinner, is the event’s platinum sponsor. Other dinner sponsors include Island Pacific, Ramar Foods, Food Source and Save Mart (18th Street, Antioch). Both the Pittsburg Community Band and Pittsburg Community Theatre will provide entertainment, with PCT presenting musical numbers from its production ‘Into the Woods,’ which runs Feb. 27-March 8 at the California Theatre in downtown Pittsburg

Tickets for the dinner are available at the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce, Lanzafame Furniture, Railroad Book Depot and Pittsburg Historical Society Museum. Tickets may also be purchased online at the PEAHOF website, www.pittsburgentertainmentandarts.org.

Individuals and businesses wishing to become sponsors or provide raffle prizes can contact PEAHOF at pittartshall@gmail.com or call (925) 642-7321.

 It isn’t just movie patrons who are going

‘Into The Woods’ this year. 

You can also do so at the California Theatre (351 Railroad Ave.) with 24 cast members as well as musicians when Pittsburg Community Theatre presents the award-winning Stephen Sondheim musical for two weekends (Feb. 27-March 1 and March 6-8). 

With the success of ‘South Pacific’ last year, the nonprofit community theatre group that has brought live theatre to Pittsburg audiences for 42 years decided to present another “big” musical, albeit a very complex one not widely known or familiar to most audiences. 

“We thought with the success of ‘South Pacific,’ a mainstream production, we could introduce more contemporary musicals to Pittsburg,” said director Dianna Schepers. “We’ll go more mainstream next year with ‘Once Upon A Matress.’” 

Knowing that ‘Into The Woods’ would be released as a major motion picture also played into the decision to produce the play.   More....


PHS Band will play for uniforms

The Pittsburg High School Marching Show Band, ‘The Pride of Pittsburg,’ and the band’s musical ensembles are looking for gigs.

The band, which represented Pittsburg at the 2009 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York, and the London (yes, England) 2014 New Year’s Day Parade, is working to raise money to purchase new uniforms.

The band grew by 24 percent for the 2014-15 school year, and indications are it will grow the same amount next year. New uniforms must be purchased so that all members of the band can perform in uniform.

What better way to support the band and enjoy some great music than to invite the band to your event?

For information or to schedule the band, contact Tony Martinez at (925) 250-8455. Donations can be made to the PHS Band Boosters, P.O. Box 1201, Pittsburg, CA 94565.

 


 

 

 

 

Individuals, service clubs help PEAHOF

Local service clubs and individuals are helping the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame bring music to Pittsburg junior high students through the PEAHOF Arts Mentoring Program.

The Pittsburg Rotary Club and Pittsburg Women’s Community League have made contributions for the purchase of instruments for use in the program.

John Guerrero, a founding PEAHOF Board member and leader of Natural Blend, one of Pittsburg’s oldest bands, and Allan Grissette, drummer for the Devil Mountain Jazz Band, have both donated instruments for the program.

 Members of the California Watercolor Association have volunteered to work with students, providing art mentoring in the watercolor medium.

Not all donations are monetary ones.

You may wish to donate a musical instrument or art supplies for the PEAHOF Arts Mentoring Program at Pittsburg junior high schools. Or you may wish to share your artistic talent and time as a mentor. You may also consider donating a special piece of artwork to PEAHOF. Contact us at pittartshall@gmail.com.
