Library’s next outdoor concert to feature New Orleans jazz band
Toledo’s oldest New Orleans style jazz band will perform next week at the Rossford Public Library’s summer concert series.
Toledo’s Cakewalkin’ Jass Band will play from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 13, on the front lawn of the library.
The library is hosting a series of free outdoor live performances by area entertainers on Wednesday evenings.
“We tried to find as many different genres of music for as many audiences as we could,” said Kris Goldsmith, library public relations coordinator.
The Cakewalkin’ Jass Band, which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, is led by founder Ray Heitger clarinetist, soprano saxophonist and vocalist.
The band has an authentic New Orleans style repertoire now at more than 490 tunes.
