VICKI PEDRINI

Vicki Pedrini - A third generation Angelino who's Grandfather founded Pedrini Music in Alhambra in 1938. Vicki was raised by two musician parents; she couldn't help but get music in her blood. She produced a "Live Jazz Series" at Pedrini Music for seven years, featuring musicians such as John Clayton, Alan Broadbent, Gary Foster, Gerry Wiggins, and Buddy Collette, among others. She decided there were so many living composers who had arranged for many musicians living in the Los Angeles area that she started a "Meet the Composer" venue. With joy, she was able to get Johnny Mandel, David Raksin, Neil Hefti, Steve Allen, Michael Feinstein (who supported so many composers) to the store and introduced them to "everyday people. Vicki was the first recipient to receive the Teri Merrill award from the Los Angeles Jazz Society. The Pedrini Family received the award again in 2001. LagunaBeachLive.Org is her Orange County contact for Jazz now. A summer & winter season is produced by Cindy Prewitt and Bejon Watson and the venues are the best: Summer at "The Ranch" and Winter at "7 Degrees".
