Did you know that music legends Ray Charles and James Brown once performed in Pittsburg? That’s right; there is a rich history of famous artists performing in the East Bay city. Whether it’s the many artists who performed at the clubs that once lined Black Diamond Street or at the Pittsburg Creative Arts Building, the musical history in this town is electric.
Today, the city pays homage to its musical history by hosting the Jazz, Blues & Funk Fest. Join us at the Pittsburg Marina on Aug. 24, and enjoy some jazz, blues and funk as we celebrate our musical history.
