May 9, 2019:                         Trio Ellas (Click for Tickets)

Trio Ellas has been making waves with a unique sound that comes from traditional mariachi roots tempered by the melting pot of musical styles and genres that is the LA music scene. The trio’s debut album “Con Ustedes” earned them a 2012 Latin GRAMMY®
nomination. They have recorded with such artists as Benjamin Gibbard and Lady Gaga, and performed live with many top artists, from Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan to Mariachi El Bronx. Their magnificent harmonies and mariachi treatments of pop songs and standards puts them in a class of their own.

June 13, 2019:   Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys(Click for Tickets)

Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys are the 21st-century embodiment of the Jazz Age and vaudeville in Los Angeles. They swing with top musicians and songs that are just a wee bit naughty from a time before censorship. Songs with lyrics like “How could Red Riding Hood / have been so very good / and still keep the wolf from the door?”

July 11, 2019:   Grupo Falso Baiano (Click for Tickets)

Grupo Falso Baiano, based in San Francisco, highlights Brazil’s earliest popular music, similar to jazz, reflecting the melding of African rhythms with a melodic and harmonic structure closely resembling Baroque Classical music. We are excited to have them play our rooftop on their Southern tour!

August 8, 2019    Miskey Mountain Boys (Click for Tickets)

The Miskey Mountain Boys is a new group made of the
West’s greatest veterans of bluegrass. They first got together as “Billy and the Hillbillies” and performed regularly at the world’s most famous theme park’s frontier-themed saloon. The group includes fan favorites mandolin virtuoso Evan Marshall and his brother and bassist John. Come hear a mind-bending rendition of the William Tell Overture! You won’t want to miss this reunion!

View from the Bendix Rooftop

The Bendix Building is the “Beaux-Arts princess of the downtown Fashion District skyline,” at 1206 Maple Ave. in downtown L.A. Famous for its fabulous neon sign tower (the “B” alone is 25 feet tall), the Bendix has presided over the Maple Avenue/Santee Alley district since 1930, when it was the headquarters of an aviation company, long before it became part of the Los Angeles’ world-famous Fashion District.

“Thanks to [owner] Steve Hirsh, the building now has a wickedly cool new dimension” as an arts destination. Heidi Duckler Dance inhabits the penthouse salon area and rooftop.

About the Series

Heidi Duckler Dance hosts the series. Each month’s program consists of a band, spoken word artist and featured visual artist. There is a cash bar and we serve light refreshments. This concert series celebrates a salon in the historical sense, where artists get together to enjoy art. All net proceeds will be given to local DTLA arts charities.

No refunds or exchanges. Events are rain or shine. If weather permits, the concert will be held outdoors on the rooftop.
