LUNCH TIME JAZZ ON THE SQUARE THIS FRIDAY CLOSES OUT 2009 SEASON


LUNCH TIME JAZZ ON THE SQUARE THIS FRIDAY CLOSES OUT 2009 SEASON

The 2009 Jazz on the Square series ends this Friday, October 30 – with a special lunch time concert on the Square. Jazz lovers can bring their lunch and enjoy music from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm by the fountain on Morgan Square.

Carolina Breeze, a four piece ensemble from Spartanburg, will be performing at JOTS. The group’s leader is Rupert Hodges, who plays guitar and saxophone. He is joined by his wife Sally on vocals and keyboard, Nate Hearn on drums, and David Porter on bass. Carolina Breeze performs light jazz and ballads.

“We like to mix in songs that people recognize and enjoy,” said Hodges. “We play a little bit of everything – jazz, country ballads, beach music, Duke Ellington tunes, and songs from the 60s and 70s. We want to play something that everybody in the audience will like.” Hodges said that they will have several guest performers joining them during the two-hour concert on Friday as well.

As an added “treat” for this Jazz on the Square, there will be candy for those who would like to bring out the little trick or treaters one day early.

Jazz on the Square is produced and coordinated by the City of Spartanburg’s Special Events Office. It is presented by QS/1. Event goers can check the Special Events Hotline number at 864-596-3613 for updated information and any cancellations because of inclement weather.
