At the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center
Welcome to the Monterey waterfront, where we’ve been presenting the best in Dixieland, big band, swing, ragtime, blues, zydeco and gypsy jazz for over 30 years!
Carl Sonny Leyland Trio
Carl Sonny Leyland has the boogie in his bones! Leyland grew up in Southhampton, England, where the rhythm and sounds of boogie woogie piano captured his imagination. In 1988, Leyland immigrated to America and settled in New Orleans before moving to Southern California. The trio’s rolicking music carries the influences of New Orleans traditional jazz, ragtime, swing and blues.
