SANTA CRUZ, CA, July 28, 1998 - Glass Box Repertory Company is holding a benefit music event the evening of Sunday, August 9, 1998 at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center. All proceeds from this live music fundraiser will go to sponsor the production of future Glass Box theatre programs. The event will be held from 8:00pm to 10:00pm, doors open at 7:30pm. Tickets are $5 and available in advance from More Music at 121 Maple Street in Santa Cruz, or at the door the night of the show.

An evening of music will fill the air as Oliver Brown and His Amazing Ukuleles headlines to benefit this worthy cause. Oliver's approach to the ukulele is a breath of fresh air in today's era of despair. His clever compositions weave humor, blithe and the wink of an eye into a comfortable (and stylish) velour. His subject matter ranges from lovebirds to crisp ocean air, from fourth-grade bullies to marsupials. Tune-in, relax, and be prepared to smile. The evening begins with a performance from another local favorite, Stellavision (formerly known as Eden Retread) performing an acoustic set, featuring music from their new release, "Stella What's-Her-Name".
