The Buzz Jones Jazz Quintet played a set in the Gettysburg rec park yesterday afternoon. It was some cool jazz on a hot Sunday afternoon.
The concert was part of Music Gettysburg!s annual series. Music Gettysburg! is using the amphitheater while their usual concert locations on the Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary campus are being prepared for reopening.
The quintet played jazz classics to a crowd of over 100 enthusiasts that watched from folding chairs placed under the shade trees around areas in front of the stage.
A hit was a solid rendition of Ferlin Husky’s 1958 “ Sittin’ On A Rainbow,” sung by the band’s vocalist, Cathy Chemi.
There will be more concerts in the amphitheater over the summer, including a July 4th performance by local fusion band Schizophonic.
