Swingin’ Jazz with Royal Crown Revue – Hollywood & Highland

 

I first saw Royal Crown Revue at a free show at the Hollywood & Highland Center in July 2010. An absolutely outstanding band, the RCR have been together since 1989. You might remember them from the movie “The Mask”. They are the band performing during the dance scene with Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz.

More information about the band below this video.

Event: Royal Crown Revue at “Wine & Jazz” series at Hollywood and Highland Center
Location: Central Courtyard – Hollywood and Highland Center, Hollywood, California

The Hollywood and Highland Center presented their Wine & Jazz series on Tuesday nights beginning June 8 and running through August 31, 2010 with a wine tasting benefit for Project Angel Food. The event is produced by KJAZZ 88.1 FM Radio. The Royal Crown Revue (RCR) was featured at the Hollywood and Highland Center on Tuesday, July 27, 2010. The band’s set included an outstanding cover of “Mack the Knife” with guest vocalist Jennifer Keith. Also featured in the set is their upbeat crowd pleasing song “Hey Panchuco” which was featured (along with the band) in the 1994 movie “The Mask” with Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz. RCR was the band playing in the dance sequence between Carrey and Diaz.

Parking at Hollywood and Highland Center

One big issue about going to Hollywood had always been the issue of parking. Either you tried to find street parking (and risk of ticket if you read the neighborhood permit parking sign wrong – yes, believe me, it can happen) or paid the expensive rates at the public parking lots.

Those days are gone with multi-story underground parking at the Hollywood and Highland Center. You can get up to 4 hours of parking for $2.00 with a validation from one of the shops or food places in the H&H Center. Personally I either grab a coffee at Starbucks (under 2 bucks).

Don’t want to hassle with this? Make life easier, reserve a discounted parking spot in advance now!

Going to be longer than 4 hours? It’s $1.00 for each additional 20 minutes. Daily maximum is $10.00.
