Irving gives final lunch performance

Irving’s last lunch concert

An audience of more than 50 offered their heartfelt support for jazz band director David Irving’s final lunchtime performance.

The event, on April 26, marked the 11th of 12 performances given by Del Mar’s MWF Jazz Band and the Del Mar Jazz Combo in the David Irving Farewell Tour.

Irving joked from the bake sale across the room to sound checks, and laughter was key in this performance — not only was the audience laughing but so was the band.

“After 40 years they can finally take a hit,” said Irving when calling the Del Mar Jazz Combo to the performance.

Irving has hosted lunchtime performances for so long they have become a staple on campus.

The final performance in the farewell series will feature the Mariachi band and is set for May 4 on East Campus.
