Annual Concert Series Kicks Off In Armstrong Park

Gwen Harlow
Armstrong Park's fifth season of Jazz In The Park starts Thursday.

People United for Armstrong Park is an organization with the mission of "establishing the park as a nurturing, living environment for the arts."

Toward that end, a few years ago they established an annual jazz concert series, which opens its 2014 season on Thursday.

Mary Steele of People United for Armstrong Park says there is a lot to look forward to this year.

"It's Season Five of Jazz In The Park and it’s a wonderful, intimate concert featuring local artists and artisans," Steele said. "We've got great food and drinks. We've got a second line that kicks it off every Thursday at 4 p.m. Its just a blast!"

The concerts start at 5 p.m.

"We’ve got great acts like James Andrews, Kermit, Bonerama and even Big Freedia will be out there this year," Steele said. "And Glen David Andrews kicks it off at 4 p.m. this Thursday."
