  University of the Pacific Faye Spanos Hall

The venerable old Faye Spanos Concert Hall hosts jazz and other musical features on a regular basis. Tickets can be purchased on-line. Check out the University of the Pacific website or the Stockton, CA website. Dave Brubeck graduated from UOP and left a multi-million dollar endowment to the university, so expect seasonal jazz concerts that feature his music, if not him. I've also seen Winton Marsalis and band in concert here. Since this is not a large hall, the venue is an excellent place compared to similar productions in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the parking is free and easy to find.

Dress Code: No requirements are made, but typically locals will dress up for a formal jazz occasion. Young jazz fans rarely dress up though.

Directions: From I-5 south of Stockton, take Pershing exit and follow until you reach UOP campus, then cross to opposite side of campus. From I-5 north of Stockton, take March Lane exit and proceed east to Pacific Avenue and then proceed south to UOP.
