Avalanche and the Cal Aggie Band-uh will play at the Davis Farmers Market’s Picnic in the Park from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 28, in Central Park, Third and C streets.
Avalanche — Liz Hedges Glattly, violin, and Don Glattly, guitar — will play their eclectic repertoire of jazz, bluegrass, classic rock and popular music from 5 to 6:45 p.m. The duo formed when they were members of the Sacramento Symphony Orchestra.
From 7 to 8 p.m., the Band-uh will march high, yell loud and rock out to classic rock. Davis Food Co-op sponsors the music; the market’s community partner, Sutter Davis Hospital, sponsors Picnic in the Park.
Bring a picnic or grab dinner at more than a dozen prepared food booths, including, Davis Food Co-op, Montoya’s Tamales, Our House, Village Bakery, Ciocolat, The Hotdogger, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, The Buckhorn, Raja’s Tandoor, Kathmandu Kitchen, Thai Recipes, East West Gourmet, Sugar Daddies, Fat Face, Upper Crust Bakery, Davis Bread & Desserts, and Kettlepop.
