It’s been a long time, Frog Island Jazz part II

Posted by ppna on June 12, 2008

Last night was another nice performance by the Washtenaw Community College Jazz Orchestra at Frog Island the event was better attended I’m thinking 60 or 70 people but there should be more. One family was smart enough to bring a picnic basket and have dinner while watching the show and more people should do just that. There were a lot of kids playing on the hill near the stage and more kids should do that. There was a group of a guys practicing soccer while enjoying the music and more people should do that. What I’m getting at is that this is a community concert for the community and it is in a park where you can do a lot of things with music in the background if you don’t just want to sit or dance and watch the music.

I would like to point out that the Washtenaw Community College Jazz Band doesn’t play a lot of jazz there seems to be more R&B in their mix than jazz. It’s a good time get out to the park and support the parks.
