The African American Cultural Society, Inc. held a Jazz Concert in recognition of African American Music Appreciation Month with live jazz by Rob’s Jazz Express, on Wednesday June 30, 2021 from 4:00pm – 10:00pm. The theme of the event was a Hawaiian Luau. This was the Center’s first publicly held event since its doors closed, due to the pandemic, in March of 2020.
AACS was encouraged by the more than 130 people who came out and expressed their appreciation and enjoying of the event, as a good time was had by all including the entertainers. There was line dancing between jazz sets and a lot of camaraderie. The food was delicious, the tropical cocktails set the atmosphere and the live music was superb.
Located at 4422 North US Hwy 1, one block north of White View, the AACS will provide a schedule of recurring programs starting in September 2021. The Center will be closed in August for renovations in preparation for its Thirtieth Year Anniversary Celebration, October 22-24, 2021, with Barbara Lee as the featured speaker. Stay tuned for additional information.
