About Jazz At The Amp


 
Jazz At The Amp is an outdoor summer
jazz concert series presented by
Westerville Parks and Recreation, SEMM Foundation and its 24 hour jazz radio
station Jazz 98.5 FM, WSAX radio.

2016 was the inaugural season of The
Jazz At The Amp series consisting of
four concert days that occurred on the
second Saturday of each month between June and September.  The first season featured jazz from a variety of jazz sub-genres, from smooth jazz to classic big band jazz.  The series has fast become the talk of the town for being the must go to place in the summer for live jazz in an inviting outdoor setting.


The 2017 Jazz At The Amp was expanded to seven concert days that began in July
and ran through mid August.  The 2017 series lineup offered our listeners, jazz fans and live music lovers alike, some of the best talent in the country featuring saxophonist Paul Taylor, trumpeter Cindy Bradley, pianist Brian Simpson, saxophonist Jeff Kashiwa, guitarist Matt Marshak, Urban Jazz Coalition, NexLevel, saxophonist Deon Yates, The Rick Brunetto Big Band, The Tommy Wade Orchestra and a tremendous lineup of our Homegrown jazz artists and groups.

Our 2017 line-up featured some of the best of our Homegrown jazz artists and groups, as well as invited national jazz acts. Jazz fans heard music from several jazz sub-genres, saw great performances and best of all, each concert was FREE to attend.
