Event Detail

The Music Center today announced that Grammy® and Latin GRAMMY® winning band Ozomatli will headline the performing arts organization’s first annual free concert, as part of the Live at The Music Center series, on Saturday, September 3, at 8:00 p.m., on Jerry Moss Plaza. The concert, which will take place over Labor Day weekend, is made possible by a major gift from Tina and Jerry Moss & the Moss Foundation, which calls, in part, for The  Music Center to develop an annual celebration of music on Jerry Moss  Plaza each summer.

The special evening will begin with a 40-minute A/V set by renowned Stones Throw label head L.A.-based Peanut Butter Wolf.  Getting his initial start spinning and playing Hip-Hop beats, Peanut  Butter Wolf developed the careers of Madlib, J Dilla, Quasimoto,  Madvillain, Dam-Funk, Mayer Hawthorne, KNX, Mild High Club, MNDSGN, and  Anderson Paak.    “We are thrilled to have Ozomatli perform a free concert on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center for all Angelenos to enjoy—what a fantastic way to kick off Live at the Music Center with one of L.A.’s homegrown bands!” said Rachel S. Moore, president, and CEO of The Music Center. “We have been able to provide this free event thanks to a major gift from Tina and Jerry Moss & the Moss Foundation.  Their deep love and appreciation for music will reverberate in the many free and low-cost events we produce year-round. So, mark your calendars  for September 3 and get ready to rock the night away under the stars!”   

Ozomatli's music is as multifaceted as its members and influences. Meeting as young political activists and musicians, the original band formed in Los Angeles in 1995 to play a notorious  urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of Hip Hop and Salsa, Dancehall and  Cumbia, Samba and Funk, Merengue and Comparsa, East L.A. R&B and New  Orleans second line, Jamaican ragga and Indian raga—all while following a key mantra: Ozomatli will take you around the world by taking you around Los Angeles. Their music has been recognized and celebrated widely with three Grammy® Awards (for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album and Best Alternative Music Album, among others), and the City of Los  Angeles has declared April 23 as “Ozomatli Day” in recognition of the band’s sizable contribution for more than 25 years to the city’s cultural life. The band, which is comprised of six members (Wil-Dog Abers, Ulises Bella, Raul Pacheco, Justin  Poree, Asdru Sierra, and Jiro Yamaguchi), recently released a new album called Marching On on Blue Élan Records.

“Ozomatli is an award-winning group which formed right here in Los Angeles so their upcoming concert over Labor Day weekend will be like performing in their own backyard,” said TMC Arts Executive Vice President Josephine  Ramirez. “Ozomatli’s ability to influence and create change through their music perfectly aligns with The Music Center’s vision to provide arts experiences that build healthier, more compassionate, and more equitable places to live. 

Join us on September 3 for an energizing  performance—it is the perfect way to celebrate the last days of summer  and our L.A. community’s strength.” In  October 2020, Jerry and Tina Moss provided The Music Center with $25  million, the largest single contribution for programming in the organization’s history. The monies are designed to support The Music  Center’s work to increase the breadth and depth of its public presentations with a particular focus on quality, affordable arts programming that is relevant to and reflective of Los Angeles’ diverse communities. This free summer concert—part of the Live at The Music Center seriesis open to all and will be held annually outdoors on Jerry Moss Plaza.   

The Music Center continues to embrace important safety practices to protect guests, artists, and staff. Guests are encouraged to wear face coverings while on its campus and at Jerry Moss Plaza. No proof of vaccination or testing is required for Live at The Music Center. Beverages will be available for sale on-site. No outside food, beverages, alcohol, or seats are allowed. Self-parking will be available in The Music Center Main Garage (accessible via the Grand Avenue entrance) and the Walt Disney Concert Hall Garage. Valet parking is not available.  

In accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Los  Angeles County Department of Public Health directives, The Music Center  worked behind-the-scenes during the pandemic to prepare for the return of live performances in its venues, both indoors and outdoors, by implementing new measures and procedures. The Music Center became the first performing arts organization in the nation to earn the UL Verified  Healthy Buildings Mark for Indoor Air and Water Quality. The Music  Center underwent an extensive assessment process to earn the verification, demonstrating that each of its four venues, Grand Park’s administrative office, and The Music Center Annex, has excellent quality for indoor air and water. Additionally, The Music Center enhanced all cleaning procedures, installed hand sanitizer dispensers in all public spaces, and created a contact-free experience in its public restrooms as well as instituted electronic ticketing and a digital program book,  among other measures.    

Live at The Music Center is generously supported by Tina and Jerry Moss/Moss Foundation.
