    Elect To Laugh: 2016 with Will Durst is a hysterical one- man show designed to satisfy the appetite of both the casual and the professional political junkie by accessing the topical through the jugular. Durst, a descendant of Swift, Twain, Rogers and Carlin hits the hypocritical where its hurts the funniest. He specializes in Comedy For People Who Read or Know Someone Who Does. Winston Churchill called the American political process a circus wrapped inside a game show covered in poisonous weasel glitter. Well, he should have. And both sides of the partisan aisle can’t help but agree that the 2016 election season has already spawned one of the most fertile, febrile and fecund campaigns in history. For mocking, scoffing and taunting purposes. As a source for material it has been an embarrassment of riches. Lush like a tropical rain forest. A cornucopia of delights. Like slam-dunking from a step-ladder. It’s political Humor for Folks Who Don’t Like Politics.

    THE ALBANY JAZZ BIG BAND under the guidance of Musical Director and Conductor, Bob Levenson, presents a clear, swinging, and modern big band sound. This year’s performance at the Dance Palace will be the seventh annual dance concert and picnic. The band plays regularly at other community events—all around the East Bay. The musicians mostly hail from the Berkeley-Albany-El Cerrito corridor. Repertoire consists of classic big band swing by the great bandleaders and arrangers; blues, bossa nova and latin, bebop and post bebop music of the 60’s and later.  The band plays great danceable music, and features fine local jazz vocalists and instrumental soloists.
