Thu, Dec 29: The Front Porch Pandemic Jazz Jam continues Jamming in December and into the New Year


From Greg Pardue <> and the Front Porch Pandemic Jazz Jam (FPPJJ):

The FPPJJ will jam on Thursday, December 28. The only change is, we’ll be starting around 2:00 to 2:30 and ending by sundown, around 5:00. This allows us to be jamming and you to be enjoying the jazz while it’s daytime and not too cold. As always, it’s weather permitting.

It is also our intention to continue this schedule into the new year although we are discussing moving the Front Porch Pandemic Jazz Jam from Thursdays to a Saturday or Sunday afternoon so it’s convenient for more jazz lovers. We’re still not sure if this will work for all of us but please let us know if you have an opinion on this. As we move into warmer weather, we’ll probably adjust the start and end times but rest assured, we’ll let you know if there are any changes to the start time or day of the week.

The FPPJJ perform on a front porch in the 5600 block of Bloch St. in far west University City. Seating is on the sidewalks, driveways and edge of the street or in your car. Bring your own chairs or a blanket and don’t forget a light jacket. Picnics, wine tasting and dancing are always popular. Pets are welcome on leash. Free for everyone, ages range from 2 to 92.

Thank you for your continuing support and hopefully we’ll see you on Thursday, December and on into the new year.
