AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Center City has announced its 9th season of Jazztober.
Jazztober is kicking its ninth season of free jazz concerts from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday in October at 1000 S. Polk St. on the grounds of Bivins Mansion.
Center City this season’s concerts are:
- Oct. 5 – The Martini’s, sponsored by Brown & Fortunato
- Oct. 12 – Ruth Ellen Lynch & Jazz Plus, sponsored by The Shops at Wolflin Square
- Oct. 19 – Sean Vokes Trio, sponsored by Joe Marr Wilson
- Oct. 26 – Austin Brazille, sponsored by Brown & Fortunato
“Jazztober returns after we had to cancel most of the 2020 season due to the pandemic. Center City is so glad to bring this tradition back to our historic downtown,” said Beth Duke, executive director of Center City.
“Jazztober is a come-and-go event. People bring their kids and their dogs. We know it is a school night, and some people need to leave before the concert is done. It`s a casual atmosphere,” Duke said.
“Center City and the Amarillo Cultural District are proud to co-sponsor Jazztober as one more way to bring people downtown. Jazztober is a great way to relax in the evening with jazz concerts on the grounds of our historic offices. We are so grateful for our sponsors and our musicians who make Jazztober a success,” Duke said. “We want everyone to come downtown I promise they will see something new!”
Center City said the concerts are free and guests should bring their own chairs or blankets, and are encouraged to bring a picnic and beverages.
