The Don and Bunk Show is coming to the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library in Torrance on Saturday, December 9th at 2 pm. The trio consists of keyboardist Don Preston and saxophonist Bunk Gardner, both alumni of the Mothers of Invention, and drummer Chris Garcia. Sponsored by the Friends of the Torrance Public Library, admission to the concert is free.

The band’s sets typically draw heavily, though not exclusively, from the Mothers’ songbook as well as Preston’s original jazz compositions.
