Three Unique Jazz Experiences
Music. Nature. Fun. – A Can’t-Miss Opportunity!
(Roswell, Ga.) June 22, 2021 – The Sundays on the River Concert Series brought to you by Lee J. Howard Entertainment returns with 3 live onsite shows for 2021. For this year’s theme of “Jazz for nurturing our heart and soul,” we are bringing magnificent and beloved world-class talent from our own Atlanta backyard.
Starting in July, “Get Your Nature On” by wrapping up the weekend in a beautiful, relaxing setting with live jazz. Bring your friends, family and a picnic of your choice. A cash bar is available. Purchase a seat at the pavilion or sit on the lawn. Any way you choose, you are going to have a wonderful evening of fun at Atlanta’s outdoor listening room, the Ben Brady Pavilion at the Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC). The series kicks off on July 11 with Joe Gransden Quartet with special vocalist Robin Latimore and continues through September with three unique jazz experiences.
For a night of jazz, blues, and swing join the Joe Gransden Quartet with special guest vocalist Robin Latimore. Joe has performed worldwide and released 16 CDs under his own name. Renowned first for the hard bop approach of his trumpet, Gransden’s singing voice has been compared to that of Chet Baker and Frank Sinatra. Experiencing this show will be a unique opportunity for concertgoers.
Other summer shows include:
- Kevin Bales Jazz Quartet and vocalist Keri Johnsrud present Beyond the Neighborhood: the Music of Fred Rogers – August 8
- Joe Alterman Jazz Trio – September 12
