HPJS at the Promontory - Cancelled Due to Covid-19
SUNDAY JAZZ AT THE PROMONOTORY - MARCH AND APRIL SHOWS CANCELLED Dear Jazzy Friends of HPJS, We at the Hyde Park Jazz Society join you in being disappointed at our having to cancel our March & April shows at Promontory. These are difficult times for everyone, but we also understand how extremely tough they are for our wonderful jazz musicians who often don’t have “day jobs.” They are usually on their own for medical care in addition to the basics of living (shelter, utilities, transportation, food, medicine). Please think about them while we are socially distanced. Perhaps purchase a jazz CD from a favorite musician? maybe offer a musician a gift card to a pizza place that delivers or to a restaurant that offers take-out? When you are not playing records or CD’s, be sure to listen to jazz on our favorite radio stations (streaming available): WDCB 90.9fm (every day + early evenings, and lots of other times -- https://wdcb.org) and WHPK 88.5fm (weekends and parts of most evenings -- http://whpk.org/schedule/). We’ll keep you posted about our status sometime in April. In the meantime, stay safe; stay well; and keep listening to the music!
