Monday Night Jazz Concert Series


The Hartford Jazz Society




Night Jazz Concert


Series 2013 at


Bushnell Park,




We will be seated nearby the Stage for maximum viewing and listening.  I will send out more info on how to find us.  We also need meetup hosts who can arrive early to stake out a spot and be there when our group members arrive.

Pick a date to host and I will announce it so everyone will know who to look for.  This is a great way to get to know everyone.  Beginning with July 8th this meetup will repeat every 6pm.


A series of FREE concerts in Bushnell Park, Hartford - Rain Venue
Broadcast live by WWUH Radio

Parking for disabled persons is available behind the Pavilion. Since the number of spaces is limited, only cars with either a disability parking permit or a license plate displaying the International Symbol of Access will be admitted.

    IMPORTANT CHANGE.....This is the Last of the Series, and we will be combining our group with "Arts & Creative Cultural Events" meetup group. Look for either my bright orange noodles but also for Cathy's "black & white" balloons. Come on and join us for some fun. If you cannot find us please call me at[masked] or text. That is also important if you signed up and cannot make it, so I wont be looking for you. This promises to be a great time.
