It’s About Time brings its classic blend of big band, swing and jazz music to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday, July 31. Music starts at 6 p.m. and is sponsored by Davis Food Co-op.

Formed in 1996, the band — Don Moe, drums; Brian Toole, alto saxophone; Carl Van Dam, alto saxophone; Steve Slinkard, tenor saxophone; Vickie Tama, vocalist; Jane Thompson, bass; John Weir, trombone; Terry Sandbek, trombone; Herminio Torres, trombone; Randy Ziegenbein, trumpet; Cal Crabill, trumpet; Joe De Hope, trumpet; Jay Surdell, piano; and Roy Levin, guitar — is a Picnic in the Park favorite with its members hailing from Davis, Dixon, Woodland, Sacramento, Walnut Creek and Rocklin.

In addition to playing many of the standards of the Big Band era, It’s About Time has expanded its repertoire to include more Latin tunes and contemporary pieces.

The market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday. Summer season is in full swing with plenty of melons, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, greens, corn, avocados, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb. Crafts are at the north end of Central Park, near Fourth and C streets.

Bring a picnic from home or buy dinner from one of the many vendors. Davis Soroptimists will pour Sudwerk beer and local wine, with proceeds going to local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenwich Acres and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
