Jazz on the Lawn is BACK! We hope to be there every week – please stop by and say hi, get a Bike Smart Pocket guide and SM spoke stickers.!
Grab your friends, family and dancing shoes for free concerts in the park. Enjoy a sampling of musical genres, free dance lessons and some of the area’s finest food trucks. Every Sunday in August from 5-7pm in Gandara Park (formerly known as Stewart Street Park). More info at www.smgov.net/jazz
COME AT 4:30 FOR A FREE SWING DANCE CLASS with Marshall Watson (Professor Watson) and Chelsea Beach, professional swing dancers.
This Sunday of the series features The Big Butter Jazz Band, dedicated to playing New Orleans traditional jazz, back from the times when jazz was still dance music. Drawing inspiration from the musicians of the past as well as the young New Orleans bands on Frenchmen Street, The Big Butter Jazz Band will get your feet shuffling, head bobbing, fingers snapping, and body moving with their hard-driving rhythm section and hot ensemble choruses. Come see Big Butter and experience their hot speakeasy sounds for yourself.
