Jazzin’ it up in Jackson

By From page B15 | June 22, 2012

The second annual “Jazzin’ It Up in Jackson” will be a not-to-be-missed event on three blocks of Main Street in Jackson on Saturday, June 23, from 6 to 9 p.m.

AmadorArts, is planning an activity-filled evening to call attention to the local lively arts scene and the revitalization of downtown historic Jackson.

With free parking and free admission, visitors can stroll Main Street and experience three live bands, browse the innovative “Art by the Inch,” open shops. Wine tasting is available for $20, wine glass included and features 29 Amador County wines, each served from one of the 29 businesses. A beer garden and delicious dinners will also be available along Main Street.

Let it be known that “Jazzin’ It Up in Jackson” does not mean all jazz bands. It more truly suggests just having a good time.

Three stages, one at each end, and one in the middle of Main Street, will feature a variety of music, including blues by Two Tone Steiny, country rock by the Brad Wilson Band, and the Speakeasy Jazz Orchestra.

There will be other street entertainment, and “Art by the Inch” will give event goers opportunities to buy sections of a dozen 4 foot x 7 foot murals painted on heavy paper by local professional artists and youth.

Look for the three colorful large balloon arches to indicate the event entry points to Main Street from Highways 49 and 88.

Free parking will be found in the Busi parking lot on Highway 49, Bank of America lot, the public city of Jackson lot off Highway 88, and along the streets.

All proceeds of “Jazzin’ It Up in Jackson”will benefit the arts education programs of AmadorArts, the Amador County Arts Council, a non-profit, public benefit corporation celebrating its 30th year anniversary.
