Travelogue Podcast Episode 7: Jazz In The Park

This past Saturday, music fans on St. Thomas headed to Roosevelt Park to attend Jazz in the Park. The concert series is presented by International Capital & Management Company several times throughout the year and offers free admission. Bring a beach chair, an umbrella, and your appetite. There are a lot of food and beverage vendors set up along the street offering a little something for everyone. The Marquis Hill Blacktet from Chicago headlined the main stage, with Louis Taylor and Friends from St. Thomas opening. The concert has recently expanded to include a second stage where a local reggae group from St. Croix called Fyah Train headlined. Fyah Train has a CD available on cdbaby.com. Lourdes and the Switch was the opening band.

For a local perspective on this event, I spoke with a regular contributor to the show, John Scipio. John shared his ideas about promoting the event, and reaching out to those arriving on St. Thomas by cruise ship.

I’ll be introducing a new segment on the Travelogue podcast dedicated to learning blues harmonica. Stay tuned for details.
