Jazz Week in Fort Pierce kicks off March 22
Every year, Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society pulls out all the stops and offers a full week of concerts and live musical events, and most of them are absolutely free. The week includeslive professional music to share with Treasure Coast residents and help spotlight historic downtown Fort Pierce.
This year’s Jazz Week kicks off on Sunday, March 22nd, with a free Waterside Blues Concert at Melody Lane in beautiful and historic downtown Fort Pierce. The party starts at 1 p.m. with a set from the Jazz Ensemble, then kicks into high gear at 3 when the Dave Scott and Tumbleweed take the stage. Bring your lawn chairs and umbrellas, but leave the bottles at home; we’ll have plenty of food and drinks available on site that afternoon.
Just when you’ve recovered from Waterside Blues, on Tuesday, March 24 a jam session with the incomparable wizard of the trumpet, James Suggs, will take place at the Sunrise Black Box Theatre, along with the seasoned pros who always come together for the community’s weekly Jazz Jams. Because there are limited seats available, you’ll want to reserve your seats and come early for this awesome addition to Jazz Week.
Wednesday the 27th features guitar music and a free concert on the waterside from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Fort Pierce, with live music from jazz guitarist Randy Johnson and plenty of room for dancing.
Thursday starts out the day with a free concert at the downtown waterfront with our famous performing ensemble and featuring Leti Metcalfe on vocals. At 6:30, you can hear the sounds of FDO – the Big Swingin’ Band.
Friday closes Jazz Week 2020 with the Latin Swing Band, so wear your dancing shoes and be ready for a surprise, guest vocalist who will be joining in the fun, free concert.
