Big Night Coming!
We are excited to be part of this summer’s KCCK-sponsored Jazz Under the Stars series.
Place: McGrath Amphitheater in Cedar Rapids
Date: August 25
Personnel: Eddie Piccard, piano and vocals; Rich Martin, vibes; Dave Richter, guitar; Craig Dove, bass; Jon Wilson, drums.
Special feature; the opening act this night will be a new person on the Cedar Rapids jazz scene: 13 year-old Grant Lapointe. Come early so you don’t miss him.
Outdoor performances have been an important part of the jazz scene for many years. For a couple of hours out under the sky music makes its own community. KCCK is doing something really valuable in carrying on that tradition here in Cedar Rapids.
Food and refreshments will be available for purchase on site. Attendees can also bring lawn chairs, blankets and their own picnic if they wish.
Major support for Jazz Under The Stars comes from Collins Community Credit Union, Kirkwood Community College, McGrath Family of Dealerships, New Pioneer Food Co-op and West Music.
Additional support from Concept by Iowa Hearing Aid Centers, Great Harvest Bread Company, Latta Harris CPAs & Consultants, Rockwell Collins, Shive Hattery Architecture Engineering and That Cellular Place.
We hope you can join us for good music and good times–all out under the stars.
