Arkansas Jazz Experience with Tonk Edwards at Whittington Place
On the third Friday (6-8 p.m.) of each month (April-August) at Whittington Place (a historic venue in downtown Hot Springs), a guest artist performs with the trio Arkansas Jazz Experience (AJE): Clyde Pound (keys), David Higginbotham (upright bass), Paul Stivitts (drums). The 2017 AJE series' closing concert on 18 August 2017 features guitarist Tonk Edwards, who was inducted into the Arkansas Jazz Hall of Fame in 2000 and briefly profiled under "Hall of Fame" at arjazz.org. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the first-come, first-seated event. The $15 admission fee is discounted to $10 for Hot Springs Jazz Society members and $5 for students under 19 (or with official student ID). Heavy hors d'oeuvres (provided by HSJS members/other volunteers) and a cash bar (beer, wine, soft drinks, water) are available during the event. Event details and photos of performers may be found on the Hot Springs Jazz Society's Facebook page and/or website (hsjazzsociety.org). Info and a local map for the venue are provided via a link at the top of this Jazz Near You entry, which can be shared via e-mail as well as social media.
