Bert Street Music Series presents Jesse Barry and The Jam | Culture & Leisure

Jesse Barry and The Jam will perform his high-energy show tonight at the Outdoor Amphitheater at Memorial Park Community Center.

With creative arrangements and moving grooves, the band are able to put their own imprint on old-school blues and popular party songs.

Barry is wildly entertaining on stage alongside blues / rock guitarist Kelly Jones. Robert Geisler’s funky basslines, fills and unique solos are the perfect combination with the creative drum grooves and cheerful energy of Micah Thomas.

Interacting with the audience is of the utmost importance to the group, and each performance has an electric energy that makes the evening a blast for everyone involved. With beautiful three-part harmonies to songs that people love to sing along to, Jesse Barry and The Jam will leave attendees dancing and singing right home.

Each free Bert Street Music Series concert will be held Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at MPCC, 510 Bert St. The stage will face the multi-level amphitheater below the famous Doughboy statue and the Veterans Memorial Square. The seats are open to the surrounding grassy areas, so blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged. Concessions will be on site. Free parking is available at the center and at the Municipal and Security Building, 601 E. Main St.
