Jazz Concert Series |
The Hamlet at Moonstone Gardens

About the Series

The jazz concerts began at the Hamlet in November of 1991. They were originally conceived to be a once in awhile event, expanded to once a Month, expanded to once every three weeks, and are now being presented around 30 times a year. They are always on Sundays and there are now two separate performances. The first begins at 4:00 pm and consists of two sets of music with an intermission in between and ends around 6:30 or so. This costs $15 per person. The Second show begins around 7:15 (usually a little after because the first show might run long) and consists of one long uninterrupted set that ends at around 8:30 or so. This costs $12. The cost to combine both Performances is $20. (There is a half price discount for high school and College students for the second show. This discount is in effect for all musicians as well.) Charlie and Sandi Shoemake normally make appearances during a portion of each set with all the visiting artists.


About The Hamlet

  the hamlet photo
The Hamlet at Moonstone Gardens

The Hamlet is an excellent restaurant with a full bar that is located on Highway 1 on the northern end of Cambria, California. Food and drink are both served during the concerts. There is a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean in the room where the concerts are held. In order to make the bookkeeping a bit simpler cash or check is requested for the concert tickets, but credit cards are honored (if desired) for all food and drink.
