(August 9, 2013; Augusta Georgia) – Garden City Jazz is thrilled to present its annual Labor Day Jazz Event, PopUpJazz, at 6 p.m. on Sunday, September 1, 2013, at the Augusta Common (836 Broad Street) in downtown Augusta, Georgia. For one night only, the venue will be transformed into a pop-up jazz club. Patrons are invited to bring their own seating or reserve a table.
A pop-up is a shop, restaurant, bar, or gallery that literally “pops up” in a temporary venue for a limited time only. It’s fleeting, its exclusive, it’s here today, gone tomorrow. Karen Gordon, founder of Garden City Jazz decided that a pop-up club would be a unique feature to close out the summer. She also sees it as an opportunity to test the market.
“Like jazz music, a pop-up lives in the moment,” said Gordon, founder of Garden City Jazz. “And while I love music in non-traditional spaces, I’m constantly asked when Augusta will have a jazz club. This seems to be a step in the right direction. If we get this right, then we’ll begin to look at something a little more permanent.”
Garden City Jazz presents several programs annually in the Greater Augusta Area, providing performance opportunities for area jazz musicians and music students, while promoting awareness of the historical and cultural significance of jazz music.
PopupJazz is free to attend. Guests are invited to bring their own seating and picnic for a night of great jazz music in a unique setting. A limited number of tables of 6 are available. Sponsorships and vendors welcomed. To reserve a table, contact Karen Gordon at (762) 233-5299 or kgordon [at] gardencityjazz.com or visit http://popupjazz13.bpt.me
