    New West Guitar Group has developed a widespread reputation as one of the premier guitar ensembles today. Featuring guitarists Perry SmithJohn Storie, and Will Brahm, they perform recognizable covers, jazz standards and exciting originals. Their signature sound comes from combining acoustic and electric guitars in an innovative style that highlights rhythm, beauty, and virtuosity. Graduates of USC’s Thornton School of Music, the New West Guitar Group is regularly featured on NPR and jazz radio stations.

    Graced with an impeccable voice and hailed by the LA Times as an artist that “may well turn out to be the next important jazz singer,” Sara Gazarek has been one of the leading lights of an impressive generation of jazz vocalists since her emergence at age 20. Her subsequent career has been the picture of success – highlighted by five acclaimed albums, an ardent fanbase, enthusiastic reviews, and collaborations with jazz luminaries.  Her most recent release Thirsty Ghost received two GRAMMY nominations - Best Jazz Vocal Album and Best Arrangement, Instrumental and Vocals for “Jolene.”



    For seated events that take place at the Museum, the venue is divided into two seating areas: Premium and General. Premium Seating comprises the first several rows of seats for guests who wish to sit closer to the stage. General Seating completes the remaining available space. Seating capacity for the venue is limited to 150 guests.

    For seated events at the Museum, the seating format is open seating (first-come, first-served) within each designated seating area unless otherwise specified. Reserved seating is available as a benefit through the Museum's Listening & Visionary Track Membership programs.

    Will call check-in typically begins one hour before the start of an event. Seating begins roughly one half-hour before the event start time.

    No outside food or beverage is allowed in the Concert Venue or in the Museum Galleries.

    If you have any accessibility concerns or requirements, please contact our staff at (760) 304-5844 with seating requests or accommodation questions.

    Most (but not all) concert events will have a brief intermission. During this time, the Museum Galleries and Gift Shop will be open for guests to visit.

    The Museum does not maintain a wait list for sold out events, and we cannot guarantee that a seat will open up after an event has sold out. We recommend purchasing tickets well in advance to ensure you have a seat for a particular event. Subscribe to our eMail list to stay informed about upcoming concerts!

    All ticket sales are final. If you cannot use a ticket for an upcoming event, please consider donating your ticket back to the Museum of Making Music.

    Listening to sounds at an excessive volume over prolonged periods of time can damage hearing. Though the Museum attempts to maintain control over concert volume levels, there are instances when performances can achieve high volume levels. The Museum makes hearing protection available in the form of complimentary foam ear plugs. These can be obtained at any time upon request.
