Third Place Commons invites you to join in summertime jazz jams! This summer, Third Place Commons is hosting a monthly series of all-ages musical jam sessions for amateur and professional musicians alike. The next jam is this Thursday, July 7th at 6:30pm.
Shoreline and Lake Forest Park musicians of all ages and experience levels are welcome and encouraged to join in the fun. These performances offer a great opportunity for young musicians to share the stage with the pros and to keep up their musical chops during the summer break.
Each performance in the series is led by The Marina Christopher Trio with a featured artist. This Thursday will feature premier jazz trombonist, David Marriott. Renowned guitarist Milo Petersen joins Marina Christopher on bass and Don Dieterich on drums.
Come enjoy a first set of music by the pros, filled with spectacular tromboning, starting at 6:30pm, followed by a lively jam session in the second set. Students and professionals of all ages are encouraged to bring their instruments and voices to join in! Musicians and singers should sign up during the break to join the Marina Christopher Trio on stage to jam!
Not a musician? No worries! All are welcome to these family-friendly events. Friends and family of performers are encouraged to come cheer on their favorite musicians while swing dancers are sure to have plenty to dance to during this lively evening. And music aficionados can take in a show with top notch, local talent!
Performances and events at Third Place Commons – including these jams as well as weekly Friday and Saturday night concerts – are always free and open to everyone. Be sure to mark your calendar as well for the next jazz jam in the series on Thursday, August 4th when the featured artist will be Jory Tindall on saxophone.
Kennelly Keys Music is generously providing drums, keys, and a guitar amp for the jazz jams series. This program is also supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture.
So grab your instruments and start warming up – and we’ll see you at the Commons!
Third Place Commons is located on the upper level to Town Center at the intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way in Lake Forest Park.
