Lutes Summer Jazz Series

The Lutes Summer Jazz Series is back for 2017! Lutes Casino has been keeping its clientele cool with great live jazz on hot summer evenings for years now, so there is much rejoicing that this very hip tradition is continuing this year – the music lives! As always, the indomitable Yuma Jazz Company Quintet will be featured throughout, but not without some great guest performers: Standout jazz vocalist Jennifer Wayman will open and close the Series on May 26 & August 18 respectively; long-time friend of YJC, trumpeter Bryan Stewart will perform on June 23; local jazz & blues legend, Jimmy Caves, will perform on July 21, and talented trombonist Ernie Ortega will slide on in on August 4.

All performances are 7 to 9 on Friday evenings, and the Series is sponsored by our favorite radio station, KAWC 88.9FM / 1320AM

So make plans now: get there a little early to ensure a table; bring your appetite; bring friends! Until then, look forward with us to inspired improvised lines wafting amid the uniquely eclectic decor as you sit comfortably while being served classic American fare and hearteningly cold beverages.
