Free Jazz at Katz Plaza .. followed by Jersey Four (Four Seasons Tribute Band)

First, we'll have the option to enjoy free jazz at the terrific Katz Plaza (7th and Penn, very close to the Benedum) where people can mingle and have a drink/food while enjoying the lively sounds of guitarist Mark Strickland and his band.

While the band performs from 5-7 PM, it may be easier to meet around 6 PM (depending on everyone's work schedule) near the tables/trees between the stage and the outdoor bar area.

Then, for those attending jazz, we can walk to Point State Park to check out a free concert as part of the opening of the Three Rivers Regatta Festival.  We should arrive in time to walk around and see a little of the opening act before the Jersey Four(Frankie Valli/Four Seasons Tribute) band performs at 8 PM.

 

Jersey Four
Frankie Valli/Four Seasons Tribute July 2 @ 8 pm, Point State Park

The smash hit musical “The Jersey Boys” which opened on Broadway, November 6, 2005, is based on one of the most successful 1960`s rock and roll groups of our time. The Cast of The Jersey Four is an explosive tribute to Frankie and The Four Seasons that recaptures the original hits from the musical as well as many other Top 10 songs that are not featured in the Tony Award winning hit, including SWEARIN` TO GOD, GREASE and many others! Along with all the recognizable tunes—such as SHERRY, BIG GIRLS DON`T CRY, RAG DOLL, WALK LIKE A MAN, and WHO LOVES YOU—The Jersey Four incorporates trivia, stories about The Four Seasons, humor, audience participation and encourages you to sing-a-long with their fabulous band.

    Hope everyone is looking forward to tomorrow's event at Katz Plaza and the Jersey Four (Frankie Valli/Four Seasons Tribute) concert as part of the Tuesday kickoff of the Three Rivers Regatta.

    If you happen to already be downtown, feel free to check out the free Tuesday jazz at Katz Plaza.

    We can meet around 6-6:30 PM behind the stage near the Backstage Bar outdoor seating area; there are also tables for those that want to order food/drinks from the Backstage Bar (which serves outside).

    As far as the RSVP, we want to be flexible. So it is OK if you'd rather just enjoy the jazz (with or without food/drinks) or the Jersey Four concert or both.

    If we haven't met before, I'll be wearing a green shirt with black pants.

    The free jazz ends around 7 PM and then we'll be going to Point State Park for the Jersey Four (Frankie Valli/Four Seasons Tribute) concert. We'll see part of the opening act (Dancing Queen) before Jersey Four comes on at 8 PM.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
