Great Food Vendors and
Food Choices

The 2022 series will also offer Great Food and Refreshment vendors with more of an international selection of foods you'd expect and enjoy, foods that compliment the enjoyment of Jazz, including the possibility of adding a selection of beers and wines
at future concerts.  For 2022, you'll be able to enjoy our concerts while dining on some of your favorite comfort foods and beverages.


Jazz At The Amp will no longer be held at the Westerville Alum Creek Park North Amphitheater.

We wish to thank all of our listeners and supporters that have both supported our station and attended our Jazz At The Amp concerts during the 2016, 2017 & 2018 seasons.

Central Ohio Jazz At The Amp concert series will return again in 2022 at a new location.

Whitehall Ohio
Race  Population  Percentage 

White  8,759 46.41%
Black & Other 10,115 53.59%

The majority of Whitehall residents are made
up of Black or other ethnic groups, yet the
City of Whitehall Mayor and The Parks and Recreation Director will not allow programming and other events which reflect the culture of
these groups, including allowing SEMM Foundation and Jazz 98.5 radio to present live jazz concerts in City controlled public parks.

Allowing Jazz In The Park And In The Whitehall Area Does This:

  • Creates more performance opportunities for musicians

  • Provides live jazz music entertainment, education and enjoyment

  • Helps the local economy & merchants

  • Provides family entertainment value

  • Promotes cultural diversity
  • Promotes a positive, inviting, progressive and welcoming
    perception of the Whitehall
    community and residents
  • Keeps Jazz Alive

...  Codes are so stringent in a town of regular people that it leaves little to no room for exciting innovation, diverseness of character and expression from your very own talent pool. I have heard ‘no’ so many times within Whitehall it truly speaks to what is wrong here, and not with the people themselves. City Hall is so afraid to allow people their true liberty, scared to death that every human being in town will go utterly mad without their control and start robbing, murdering and putting their cars on cinder-blocks in the front yards. They have a complete lack of trust in anyone’s sense, except their own, and that’s the truth of Whitehall’s leadership. They rule with an anti-liberty, anti-diversity, anti-poor, anti-freedom, anti-human ‘vision’, steering the ship of state with an iron grip, eyes fearfully peeled for anyone or anything unlike their dull, standardized selves which challenge their contemptuous ‘vision’ ...
