Re/creation Café presents a Summer Night Concert & Pool Party at Yamashiro Hollywood's Pagoda Bar, featuring an open-air performance by William Close & Earth Harp, along with other special guests. Enjoy food & drinks at Yamashiro's Night Market, then join us at the Pagoda Bar for a special concert under the stars. Due to the popular response following our last show we are bringing the William Close and Company back for a special two day ticketed engagement. This is a musical experience unlike anything you've experienced before. Catch a front row view while wading in the Pagoda pool, and feel what its like to be in the music as the Earth Harp strings play overhead, resonating through the audience below. Enjoy three levels of open seating. We encourage guests to bring blankets and pillows to create the most comfortable experience possible. The pool will be open so bring a bathing suit and towel. Don't miss this enchanted evening under the stars. Tickets will sell out. All ages welcomed. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
** Please note there are two different ticket links for each show date. See below for more info, and check the date before confirming purchase. **
William Close / Earth Harp
Close is an inventor and musician, best known for his Earth Harp, a larger than life harp which he has suspended across canyons, and anchored to the tops of skyscrapers. He has toured around the world playing music at numerous events, concerts, and cruises, and currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest stringed instrument. Close gained international recognition when he appeared on America's Got Talent in 2012, and finished third overall.
This magical evening is 7 years in the making! I first saw Earth Harp at Burning Man in 2011, and was determined to bring it's magic to the Night Market. In 2015, when I finally met William in person I shared my vision, and now three years later, it is finally coming to fruition. I am grateful for William's generosity, and look forward to sharing his craft with all of you.
