Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Long considered one of the most iconic of country rock groups, the legendary Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s soared to popularity with their hit single “Mr. Bojangles” in the 1960s. Their groundbreaking album, “Will the Circle be Unbroken,” helped create a bridge between traditional and contemporary country styles and was inducted into the Library of Congress and the Grammy Hall of Fame. Through the decades, the band’s irresistibly appealing combination of American roots music and good-time rock and roll has always kept audiences coming back for more.

Can't Ain't Nothing But a Four Letter Word
Funnymanmalcolm Produtions, in association with Crisman's Comedy Sound Check, presents Malcolm Grissom in “Can’t Ain’t Nothing But A Four-Letter Word”. Originally directed by Joya Cory, the show premiered as part of The San Francisco Fringe Festival. It’s an autobiographical journey exploring the stereotypes of being black and disabled.

Growing up in a small town in Hawaii, Grissom couldn’t be happier. Everyone knows and loves him. Then, in an instant, everything changes. His life is turned upside down by a deadly and mysterious virus, Reye's Syndrome. The metamorphosis is horrendous. What's more, doctor's say he's permanently disabled. Now what? Through laughter, tears, inspiration and hope, “Can’t Aint Nothin But A Four-Letter Word” is Grissom’s story of struggle with his anguish of finding racial identity and success, despite his disability.

Picnic and Opera in a Vineyard

Picnic and Opera in a Vineyard
What better way to enjoy a summer evening than picnicking in a vineyard, sipping wine and listening to opera? It is an evening of classic opera in a relaxed, casual setting nestled among the vines of Retzlaff Vineyards for Livermore Valley Opera's 21st annual Opera in the Vineyard.

This ever-popular benefit for LVO offers a chance for the community to enjoy arias from classic operas performed by professional singers in an informal setting. It is a "bring-your-own-picnic dinner" event where guests can purchase the organically-made wines of Retzlaff Vineyards while enjoying performances by professional opera singers.

New this year, LVO welcomes its own Wind Octet, performing musical selections from LVO's upcoming fall production of "Carmen."

Once again, LVO will offer the extremely popular "Arias a la carte" portion of the program when guests have the opportunity to purchase songs from a "menu of arias" for the singers to perform at the purchaser's table or seating area. This year's singers are mezzo-soprano Michelle Rice, tenor Christopher Sponseller, and soprano Greta Feeney-Samuels. Accompanying the singers is pianist Chun Mei Wilson.

Early bird reservations for $30 through July 9 can be made online at www.livermorevalleyopera.com, or by calling the information line at (925) 960-9210. After July 9, the cost is $40 if space is still available as this event is expected to sell-out. Reservations for tables of eight can be reserved in a company or family name.

Adding to the festivities will be a raffle drawing and silent auction, including spectacular desserts for guests to enjoy after their picnic.

While Retzlaff wine will be available for purchase, no outside wine is permitted. Guests are encouraged to carpool.
Sponsor: Retzlaff Vineyards
Location:  1356 S. Livermore Ave, Livermore
Times:  5:00pm to 8:00pm
Admission: $30 in advance through July 9; $40 after July 9.

Oliver! is the musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s classic tale of an orphan who runs away from the orphanage, run by the heartless Mr. Bumble. After running away Oliver hooks up with a group of boys trained to be pickpockets by a con artist, Fagin, where he meets the artful Dodger and Nancy. When Oliver goes on his first pick-pocketing job, he is caught by the police. He soon realizes that neither he nor Nancy is fit for a life of crime.

Adults can register online for this free program by going to www.livermorelibrary.net, clicking “Reader’s Room”, and selecting the Adult Summer Reading Program. Click “sign me up” to enter your information and set a user name and password. The program begins Friday, June 14, 2013 and ends August 17, 2013.

The Adult Summer Reading program instructions are as follows:
• Register online beginning June 14th and no later than August 16th 2013.
• Read books or listen to audio books.
• For each book you read or listen to, log in online with your user name and password. Type in the title, author, and a comment about the book.
• For each 3 books read, up to 12 books, you will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win movie tickets and gift certificates to local restaurants and merchants.

Whether you prefer mysteries, romances, science fiction, or westerns, take some time to relax this summer and join the Adult Summer Reading program at the Livermore Public Library. Don’t let the kids have all the fun!
