Arts Huntsville is bringing live music to downtown Huntsville with Summer Street Jams as people return to open businesses while social distancing. The music series will be each Friday and Saturday evening through July 3, 2020. Local musicians will perform three outdoor locations each weekend from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
“Huntsville summers are typically filled with great performances by local musicians and area artists,” said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. “Arts Huntsville Summer Street Jams bring live music back to downtown in a safe, socially-distanced format. This series is a way to get outside and support both our local music scene and local businesses.”
“We have a diverse lineup of performances each weekend, and we encourage the community to support the musician’s physical and virtual tip jars, “ said Allison Dillon-Jauken, Arts Huntsville Executive Director. “Our local musicians, artists, and arts organizations – like so many local businesses – have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. The Summer Street Jams series is a way for local musicians to resume live performances and generate income again.”
Summer Street Jams locations include: Holmes Ave. across from Moe’s Original BBQ, Big Spring Park Plaza near Cozy Cow, and Corner of Jefferson St. and Clinton Ave. near Phat Sammy’s.
