SLIM JENKINS
San Francisco’s Slim Jenkins is a celebration of great American roots music and its tradition of innovation and energy. Harking back to the heyday of hot jazz and blues, Slim Jenkins evokes a world of seduction and mystery, love and betrayal. Sultry and smooth, or jumping and hot, their music keeps the dance floor energized and alive.

The Jam Moves Inside



San Diego Jazz Fans,

The Jam Moves Inside!

As we move in to summer, Balboa Park is filled with bustling activity, both day & night. Hundreds of thousands of tourists flock to the Park for its Museums and beautiful gardens. The Old Globe kicks off their outdoor season in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. Weddings are happening throughout the Park. Balboa Park After Dark with The San Diego Museum of Art’s $5 discounted admission on Friday evenings and Nighttime Zoo draws thousands. And the jazz flows from Panama 66 every Wednesday night until 11:30pm.

Yes, the jazz! If you've ever walked through the park during a Wednesday night Jam Session you know that the sounds of jazz can be heard echoing throughout the trees. It's electrifying. But to be a good neighbor to all means finding the best way to co-exist, and so for a three month period starting Wednesday, June 22nd we will be moving the Jam Session inside the spacious San Diego Museum of Art's Copley Auditorium for the summer.

This move will allow us to keep the Jam going all summer without impacting any of the other amazing happenings in the Park. And everything you expect from a night out at Panama 66— the incredible cocktails, the all-local beer selection, the fine wines, plus our hand-crafted menu featuring our own house smoked and cured meats and freshly baked breads— all of it, will be available inside. Additionally we will be able to continue to grow the jam, without being affected by the increasing summer crowds that will be flock to Panama 66 after the Museums close for the evening. So, to ensure the Jam has ample space and to ensure that the fans can enjoy the music without interruption, we will take full advantage of the 300+ capacity auditorium we have just behind the glass doors. This is another amazing opportunity to keep jazz alive — and growing — in San Diego. We appreciate all the help and cooperation our partner, The San Diego Museum of Art, has offered and we look forward to an exciting summer of Jazz in Balboa Park.

WEST WING 50TH


Monday, 6:00 p.m. 

The Museum first opened its doors in 1926. After 40 years of bringing art to San Diego, the Museum's flourishing permanent collection began to outgrow exhibition space. Plans went underway to double the size of the Museum and expand the vaults and galleries for the growing permanent collection and traveling exhibitions. In 1966, architects Robert Mosher and Roy Drew completed the creation of the West Wing—in addition to more gallery space, and the James S. Copley Auditorium, it is now home of the Research Library, Panama 66, Bibliotique, and the May S. Marcy Sculpture Court and Garden. 

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of the West Wing with:
  • Complimentary hors d'oeuvres from Panama 66 (cash bar)
  • Docent-led tours of the Research Library and Sculpture Garden
  • Live music from San Diego Music-award winner Gilbert Castellanos
  • Historical insights from Docent Manager and Museum historian Dr. James Grebl
  • Historic photo montage documenting the expansion of the West Wing
  • Take a trip down memory lane and join us as we commemorate this historic architectural milestone.
And mark your calendar to see Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture, opening November 5, 2016. This is the first major retrospective in two decades of Louis Kahn, the American architect whose monumental & visionary work is evident in one of his most important projects, the Salk Institute in La Jolla. 

This is a free event. Registration is not required. Cash bar.
