If you're looking for a day of great music on the cheap, the answer is in your backyard: the 38th annual Campana Jazz Festival to be held Saturday in the Amador Theater on the Amador Valley High School campus. For $10 ($8 for senior and students), you can watch a full day of performances by some talented musicians, some among the tops in the state. The day begins at 8 a.m. Saturday with the Amador Jazz B in the theater, and winds up with performances by the day's winning bands at 5:30 p.m. and the presentation of more than $12,000 in summer music camp scholarships. In addition to great music, gourmet food trucks will stop by from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The day-long festival will feature 38 ensembles from 22 Bay Area schools, including Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, and Danville. The festival will be held in three different venues, all at Amador High School, 1155 Santa Rita Road. It's named for Jim Campana, AVHS Music Director from 1959 through 1979; he's expected to attend.
