TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE EVENT.
Locally Grown is a concert fundraiser that will benefit Food For Thought, a nonprofit, grassroots organization in Ojai that brings nutrition education, agricultural literacy and environmental awareness to the students of Ojai's public schools. The event will be held in Libbey Bowl, a delightful outdoor amphitheater, on August 25, 2007.
This year we will be headlining two lyrical local favorites who have risen to national acclaim: Perla Batalla and Brett Dennen.
Perla Batalla recently appeared in Leonard Cohen's critically acclaimed tribute film "Im Your Man". She has assembled a new band that brings a rich depth showcasing Batalla's powerful voice and soulful, Latin-tinged ballads. Brett Dennen is a young singer-songwriter who is gaining a wide audience on tour with John Mayer and Sheryl Crow. His pure and timeless vocals and joyous lyrics promise great things.
To add to the youthful and community spirit of this event, this year we will also feature the winners of the first Locally Grown Battle of the Bands. Band winners (all from Ojai or Ventura and aged between 13 and 20) Emy Reynolds, The Philosophy, Avant Garage and The Imaginative Clams will perform as openers. Several other 'delightful surprises' are planned for the show, including raffle drawings for an ADVENTURE package gift that includes a trail bike from Bicycles of Ojai and Patagonia bike gear, a GARDENING package of tools, perennials and fruit seedlings from Ace Hardware and Mountain Meadows Nursery, and a SPA package of therapeutic massage and health and beauty treats from Serenity Day Spa.
