Saturday, August 24, 2019 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Back by popular demand and closing out the 2019 free Jazz under the Stars concert series on Saturday, August 24 at 7 pm in Medina’s Uptown Park is Akin for Jazz, featuring Tim Akin on bass, Mark Gonder on Drums and Dean Newton on guitar. The ensemble will play a wide selection of jazz from the 20s through the 60s, including many of the jazz standards from Duke Ellington to Miles Davis along with many lesser-known tunes from more obscure artists. There will be something for everyone and anyone who is a jazz aficionado.
