Music series

Amp Music Series once again fills downtown with music

JACKSON, Tenn. — A long-awaited concert series is back in Hub City.

Friday saw the curtain rise on the Amp Summer Concert Series.

Fans relaxed on lawn chairs, enjoyed great food and listened to a variety of musical performances.

“It’s just a great time for everyone to come together. And after COVID, you know everyone wants to hang out,” said Jimmy Exum, chairman of the Amp committee.

Exum says COVID-19 also affected last year’s concert series, forcing it to cancel.

“Well, it’s always the same. Except of course we didn’t have any concerts last year, so it’s our seventh year, but of course we missed the sixth year,” Exum said.

Music fans say they are excited for the return of the concert and the chance to enjoy lots of music.

“We come here a lot, especially last year,” said Tommy Martin, a participant.

Frank Lawrence of the Jackson Good Evening Rotary Club says his team comes to sell delicious food while raising money for charities in the community.

“We will be here all summer. Everyone should come and enjoy the music and have nachos,” Lawrence said.

The next concert in the series is scheduled for July 23 at the Amp at the Farmers Market with King Beez performing.
