Chris Rene Rocked the Vote Friday for City Council Candidate Pamela Comstock

The star of TV's 'X Factor' played with a host of other big name musicians. For a night Santa Cruz felt like Hollywood.

Pam Comstock's campaign event Friday was like none in recent memory.

Held on top of the Rittenhouse building, it featured singer Chris Rene, Cruz Matik, featuring former New York Giant Reggie Stephens and Jason Williams, and Ribsy's Nickel, which also features Williams singing.

"This raises the bar higher than ever," said City Councilman David Terrazas.

The show cost $35 in donations to Comstock's campaign. Comstock, who works for the software company that makes Auto-Tune, is running for the first time. She was a founder of the neighborhood group Take Back Santa Cruz, which has worked to represent families and safe neighborhoods.

Her husband, Craig, a movie assistant director, helped organize this benefit.

What a great place for a party. Beautiful view and huge patio that you can see the whole downtown of Santa Cruz. I was expecting more of a political speech night, but it was a PARTY! Great food Great music and dancing Fun! The Top Of The Ritt is great for any kind of reception. It was fun being that close to my new favorite "superstar" Chris Rene too!

Pam and Craig did a fantastic job with this. It felt so comfortable and welcoming. Santa Cruz and politics presented themselves perfectly at this event!
