Unforgettable Evening of Jazz and Photography @ 701 Whaley

  • 701 Center for Contemporary Art 701 Whaley Street Columbia, SC, 29201 United States (map)

An Unforgettable night of Music and Photos! Sponsored by Columbia SC 63: Our Story Matters, and in partnership with 701 Center for Contemporary Art, Jazz@701 brings back A Sign Of The Times!

Led by Composer/Director, Tyrone Jefferson, A Sign of the Times’ are committed to the mastery and preservation of Jazz – the only musical genre born in America! Their repertoire swings and transports listeners to the days of Dizzy, Bird, Miles and Sassy as well as Earth, Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye, the Stylistics, Etta James and James Brown. Each musical story is told with authenticity and reverence to the great ones that came before us.
Known by many as Charlotte’s premier Black-owned music organization, they will lift your spirits and stir your soul!

Renowned photographer Cecil Williams will also be on hand with his new book “Unforgettable”. Mr Williams is well known for his vast work documenting the civil rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s but he has also pointed his lens at well known southerners like jazz legend Skipp Pearson!

Tickets at the door $15 cash. Cash bar with beer, wine and Village Idiot Pizza! For more info contact lakornegay@gmail.com or 803-237-1793
