About the Event

Enjoy live music from Grupo Bella and Kingston Ska Collective featuring members of Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra and vocalist Jesse Wagner, programmed by Metro Art Presents for the Union Station Goliday Tree Lighting on Tuesday, November 29, 2022 from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Iconic Union Station will become a hub for the holidays, summoning the sights and sounds of the season with the 7th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony under the stars in the Station’s South Patio.

To kick off the season, the historic Station will illuminate a towering 35-foot tree as guests are immersed in thousands of glistening lights on the South Patio while enjoying a free hot cocoa and holiday cookie bar. The fun, festive, family-friendly celebration will also feature a holiday arts and crafts zone, custom photo ops and Santa selfies, an appearance by VIP guests from the North Pole to vault visitors into the holiday spirit and more.


Featured Artists

Kingston Ska Collective, featuring members of Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra, is best described as Duke Ellington meets Jamaica. The group fuses the big band jazz arrangements of the 1940s with the sound of the Caribbean for a signature one-of-a-kind experience. Ska will collide with holiday classics at this unique performance featuring world-class musicians from across LA.

Grupo Bella, a multi-faceted band from LA with roots in mariachi who perform a broad assortment of music spanning many different cultures, genres and time periods, will play a distinctive holiday set.
