While Ron Johnson and the staff of Jazz 98.5 FM and the SEMM Foundation are currently busy working toward the full launch of the new 98.5 FM 24-hour jazz radio station, that work is not deterring them from their other mission of bringing great live jazz to the area through the Jazz Brew Concert Series. In the first of two great shows this weekend, the Rick Brunetto Big Band will kickoff the 2016 Jazz Brew Concert Series with a performance at the series’ home base, the Whitehall-Yearling High School Auditorium, 675 South Yearling Road on Friday, July 8th, at 8pm. Having recently celebrated 27 years of playing every Thursday night at the 94th Aero Squadron, Brunetto and company continue entertaining jazz audiences with their swing, big band, and pop favorites fronted by world-class vocalists Tia Harris and Michael Phillips. Tickets for this fundraising concert supporting 98.5 FM and the SEMM Foundation are available here. On Saturday, July 9th at 6:30pm, the second concert of the inaugural Jazz At The Amp Westerville Outdoor Jazz Series features smooth jazz titans Urban Jazz Coalition at the Alum Creek Park Amphitheater, 221 W. Main St., Westerville. This internationally-renowned urban contemporary jazz juggernaut is busy touring the nation this summer, so don’t miss the chance to see them in Columbus for FREE!
