Blues, Jazz, & BBQ on Riverstreet (Free Event!)

Okay y'all this event is planned for Saturday at noon, but I don't want any of you missing out, so note the schedule below, and if you can venture out Friday night, or earlier Sat in the morning. 

We are planning on wearing blue (everyone has something blue, right?) in celebration of the blues, and I'll post a location for us to meet before Sat. Or I'll just have a big sign. Or balloons? Probably not. Maybe I'll wear a name tag. 

:P

Here's the schedule, derived from connect magazine's website!

Please note that some times are for City Market, and some for River Street!

    Sorry I missed everyone. I got down about 1:30. Saw an occasional blue shirt, but no grouping. Missed seeing you Mandy. Enjoyed the music nonetheless. Great stuff! A good duo from Atlanta; Julie Dexter (who was amazing - even through the rain); and then an energetic and fantastic Bottles and Cans. I left after that. I took some photos - I'll post a few later.

    Ok I went last night until the rain ran us all away. I think I will go again for a while today. Maybe no rain. I see we have a photo page but don't see where or how to post pictures for this event.

      I was trying from my computer. After you posted a couple of pictures it would allow me to add photos to the same album. I could not start an album of the event.

    Just found out yesterday that I'm working a gig both Fri and Sat nights....a slight chance to swing by much later - but truly might not be up to it...It's Summertime and that means lots of outdoor and FREE music coming up so I'll catch you all next time:-)

    • Mandy

      Will miss you Donna! Keep sending me suggestions for concerts when you see them! Have fun this weekend if you don't make it out.

    Hi fellow music lovers. I am new to the group and this is my first event to attend. I will attend in the evening on Friday looking for the blue shirt crowed. I too will be decked out in a blue shirt and hope to meet some of you.

    June 4

    • Mandy

      Hey Rich this group will officially be out on Saturday, not Friday! Can you make it on Saturday?

      June 4

  • GN

    i'm confused - gotta grab a Connect - I thought the event was at City Market that day?? I have a day-after-my-birthday brunch that morning so I'll be there late, but I'll post here to ask where you guys are when I'm about to head in!

    June 4

    • Mandy

      Hey Gelcys! I looked at Connect online, and it seems that some performances are in City Market, and some are at Rousakis Plaza on Riverstreet. I'm planning for us to meet on Riverstreet, but if some of us want to catch the City Market bands, that's cool too. I'll post the info up above ^^^^^

      June 4

  • Vince G.

    Blue for the BLUES!!! I can do that. I'll come all JAZZED up for the music too.

    2 · June 2

  • Mandy

    WOW a lot of people have RSVPd to this one! Is it something to do with the word free??
    Well whatever the case, I'm looking forward to seeing all of you there!
    I just found out that there will be a hot dog eating contest at 11 a.m. so if that interests you, get there before the noon time stated above! I don't know why, but the idea of watching people shove hot dogs in their mouths sounds pretty exciting to me. If you would like to have some meetup team spirit, wear BLUE. I'll be in a bright blue shirt myself.
    This could possibly help us find each other, but checking out this page the day of the event, or sending me a message will be the easiest way to avoid confusion. The day of the event I'll post exactly where we are. Of course, we don't have to all spend the entire day together, but at least come and say hi and meet some people! That's what the group is about!

    Again, any questions, post here or send me a message.

    ~Mandy

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
