The Summertime Blues 2003

Jazz & Blues Night at N.L.V. City HallWelcome to the second edition of Jazzin' the Park. Here we are still in March but, well, the temperatures have already been near the 75 degree mark. So... we shall start out 2003 rather on the early side. The first outdoor listing being that of The Yellowjackets at the Henderson Pavillion on March 8th. And my jazz n' blues friends, tickets for lawn seating is only three dollars! The listings are just now trickling in, so be sure to check back for all the outdoor festivities of the summer and for additions and updates. Keep on jazzin' and may all your blues be minor.
