As leaves and blooms emerge and grass grows greener, our 5th Annual Summer Concert Series kicks off with a new Spring event: Benton Park's first lakeside jazz picnic, on Sunday, May 19th.
This first of two jazz picnics scheduled for the 2013 season utilizes Benton Park's beautiful lake, with Sarah Jane & the Blue Notes performing from a stage that overlooks the water. Sarah Jane steps from St Louis Jazz Music with her lush, sultry voice in the tradition of a “red hot mama,” along with the Blue Notes to deliver swingin’ hot jazz and blues from the 1920's to the 50's.
Bring your favorite smorgasboard of picnic fare, beverages, blanket, friends & family for a cozy lakeside experience made complete with a free concert by Sarah Jane and the Blue Notes.
We hear that local restaurants Luvy Duvy's and Benton Park Cafe are offering box lunches if you'd prefer to have a meal prepared for you. Please contact the restaurant for additional information.
We look forward to seeing you in the park on Sunday, May 19th!
