Sunset Concerts: The Belle BrigadeSkirball Cultural Center
2701 N Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
Oscar-winning composer John Williams' grandkids Ethan and Barbara Grusuka are also the children of successful TV and film composer Jay Gruska, so it's safe to say they were born into a musical legacy. As the Belle Brigade, their harmonies have earned the two siblings comparisons to the likes of Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers. The band blends classic Americana influences, from country twang and folk to a breezy '70s-era California sound. Hear the Belle Brigade perform live in the kick-off to the Skirball Cultural Center's 17th annual free music series. Reservations aren't required, but there's limited seating and it's on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to get there early.
