Spike Jones
and his Crescenta Valley Connection

Monday, September 17th 7:00pm

La Crescenta Center for Spiritual Living
At the intersection of Dunsmore and Santa Carlotta


Before there was "Weird Al" Yankovic ... before there was Frank Zappa ... there was Spike Jones. In the '40s and '50s, Spike Jones and his band, The City Slickers, had a string of hit song parodies. Spike married a Crescenta Valley girl, whose extended family capitalized on Spike's fame with the Spike Jones Market. We'll hear some Spike Jones history, and then listen to a selection of Spike's hilarious tunes on vintage phonographs.
