As Long Beach gears up for the summer there are tons of events happening around the city that really help bring in the season in style. LBPP was at the recent Taste of Downtown at the Waterfront and there couldn’t be a better way to kick things off then with some of the best restaurants in downtown set up on the water serving up their best dishes. Over 20 downtown eateries participated as hundreds came out to stroll along the pier, stuff their faces, and of course listen to great local music provided by Gregg Young & The 2nd Street Band. Gregg and his band cover everything from the classic jazz & blues, to rock, to show tunes and they do it with style and funky precision!  Of course if you couldn’t make it out to this awesome event, LBPP has you covered! Check out the video below to get a sample of what the Taste of Downtown is all about, featuring music by Gregg Young & The 2nd Street Band.
