The B. B. King Museum is having a Jazz Concert at Club Ebony on September 6th. Doors will open 6pm with the first performance beginning at 7pm. The seating chart is located on the website. Link: http://www.bbkingmuseum.org/jazz-concert.
“We host Jazz at the Museum featuring Alphonso Sanders the first Thursday of the month and it has really been a great event to bring the community together. The audience is very diverse and our guests come from not just Indianola, but from around the Delta (Greenville, Belzoni, Greenwood, etc.). From polling our guests at Jazz night, we decided to have this Jazz Concert. The jazz night patrons wanted to have a night at Club Ebony. Please come out and relax to some great Jazz music September 6th.”
