Jenkins Construction presents a FREE concert by The Larry Brown Swinglane Orchestra on Wednesday, July 19th at Ballard Park from 7 to 8:30 pm in the quarry meadow.

The popular seventeen piece Swinglane Orchestra is a group of professional musicians who play jazz, swing and big band music that is wonderful to dance to and easy on the ears under the direction of band leader Don Chilton.

All of the Jenkins Construction Music Month concerts will be held in Ballard Park’s quarry meadow. Enter at 21 Hazard Road. Seating for all concerts is on the grass so event goers are advised to bring a blanket or lawn chair on which to sit. There is rugged terrain so sturdy shoes are also recommend. Please note it is a fifteen minute walk into the quarry meadow.

Picnic dinners are welcome. Please follow the ‘pack it in, pack it out’ rule. Parking is available on Hazard Road. Smoking is prohibited in Ballard Park.
