The Carmel Youth Center has a rich and colorful history, beginning with our founder—entertainer, philanthropist Bing Crosby.

theEVENT: A Benefit for the Carmel Youth Center

Lisa Taylor with Jesse DeCarlo Join us for a new tradition on Sunday, September 10, 2017 from 3pm to 7pm at Carmel's Sunset Center (located at San Carlos and Ninth). theEVENT will showcase local wines and savory foods and desserts from your favorite local restaurants, a silent auction, and music by Jesse DeCarlo + Rough Jazz Collective (featuring Lisa Taylor).

Here's what the Monterey County Weekly has to say:

"Jesse DeCarlo doesn’t do "smooth jazz." In fact, to make that point clear he dubbed his band The Rough Jazz Collective. To DeCarlo, that means drawing from the funk and soul tinged jazz of the '60s. To audiences, that means colorful, dynamic performances that command attention that’s different from lounge act experiences. [SK]"
