The only thing better than a summer jazz concert is a free summer jazz concert! Thanks to Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance, you can listen to jazz every other Saturday night at La Encantada's shopping center courtyard from now until August 27th. Come this Saturday, July 16th, at 7pm., and listen to the River Road Ramblers' Live Dixeland Jazz.
The River Road Ramblers were created in 2006 to provide a Dixieland Band alternative for the Tucson Area. Made up of 8 experienced musicians on trumpet, clarinet, tenor sax, trombone, guitar, piano, bass and drums. The performances are a mix of roaring 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50's Dixieland Jazz performed in true MARDI GRAS / Roaring 20's style.
La Encantada is located at 2905 E. Skyline Dr. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs, and non-alcoholic drinks. For more information, call 797-3959 or visit SAACA's website.
