JazzArt Charlotte’s outdoor summer concert series returns with a special evening of music with the John Dillard Group. The series features a variety of the region’s top jazz musicians, showcasing their talents in uptown Charlotte at Victoria Yards.
John Dillard is described by many as the “bassist of the stars,” known for his heart-stopping, spirit-moving, mind bending musical expression. Dillard will be playing a mix of R&B, jazz, fusion and soul backed by Gena Chambers on vocals, Howard McNair Jr. on keys, and Quanta Dillard on drums.
Also featured will be the Ron Brendle Quartet with a set of standard jazz and the JazzArts Youth All-Stars showcasing a glimpse of the next generation of talent in Charlotte.
Food trucks will be on hand for all of your refreshment needs. Some chairs will be available, but you are encouraged to bring your own.
Victoria Yards is located at 408 North Tryon Street, in uptown Charlotte across the street from Duckworth’s at the corner of N. Tryon St. and 7th St. There is close parking along the street, and in 7th Street Station.
