The Jefferson Arts Committee’s free summer gazebo concerts have begun and take place throughout the end of August on Friday evenings at the beautiful Victorian gazebo in the municipal complex (1033 Weldon Road, Oak Ridge). All concerts begin at 7 p.m. and are two hours long, usually with a short intermission.
It will be a night to remember as the 10-piece band Reminisce performs on Friday, July 16 and bring their audience back to the 50’s and early 60’s with the memorable music of that time – “In the Still of the Night”, and “Shout” and songs by The Platters, The Flamingoes, the Sherells, Dion and the Bellmonts just to name a few. They are known for displaying showmanship and interaction with the audience, and they have done just that during their past performances in Jefferson Township. Find them at http://www.reminisceband.com/
Attendees are asked to bring a blanket or chair for their comfort. Non-alcoholic beverages, picnic dinners, and snacks are permitted on the grounds. All trash must be taken home upon departure. Social distancing is encouraged.
In the event of or threat of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the Jefferson Township High School Auditorium, 1010 Weldon Road (.1 mile away). If you are not vaccinated, the Board of Education’s recommendation is that you wear a face mask. For updates, visit Jefferson Arts Committee on Facebook or www.jeffersonarts.org or call 201-230-8879 or 973-697-3828.
What a great way to end the week and wind down for the weekend. Remember, dancing and singing along is always encouraged at these summer concerts. Free-will donations are always gratefully accepted especially this year as all Jefferson Arts Committee fundraisers had to be canceled last year due to the pandemic and it will probably not be until next year until regular activities can be reinstated.
