Charleston Community Jazz Band, Other Bands to Perform at Kiwanis Park | Music


CHARLESTON — The Charleston Community Jazz Band is scheduled to perform its final concert of the season on Tuesday, Aug. 23 at Kiwanis Park, but the Concerts in the Park series will continue through September.

“The jazz band members have been rehearsing and performing since mid-May,” said Ginger Stanfield, manager of the Charleston Community Band, as she prepared for Tuesday’s show at the Daum Amphitheater. “The concert is free, but members of the public will need a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. The weather must be perfect, so please come out for an evening of light jazz and big band music.”

The 18-member jazz band’s musical lineup will include “American Patrol”, “Sausalito Strut”, “Moonlight Serenade”, “St. Louis Blues”, “Brown Eyed Girl”, “Bandstand Boogie”, “Oye Como Va”, “Stormy Weather”, “Caravan”, “Domino”, and “Flying Home”.
