[ARCHIVED] Jamestown Jams Concerts Conclude with Soul Night Featuring J Baxter & The Sauce

Jamestown Jams Flash

Come enjoy an evening of free live music with J Baxter & The Sauce on Friday, Sept. 24! The band features party-rock, show performance and soul music showcasing a range of influences including James Brown, Michael Jackson, Parliament Funk and more. The 14-piece band (six vocalists, drums, bass, guitar, keys, three horns and a DJ) is comprised of a team of accomplished professional musicians having shared stages with legendary performers ranging from Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, Chase Atkins and more.

Showtime is 6-7:30 p.m. Concerts are free, performed live and are held outdoors on the grassy event field within Jamestown Beach Event Park, 2205 Jamestown Road. Bring your own picnic or purchase food from the onsite trucks - Food from Foodatude (Food with Attitude) and Sno-to-Go. The Williamsburg Winery will also be on hand serving fine wines.

James City County partnered with The Arc of Greater Williamsburg (The Arc) to offer the free concert series. The Arc will be selling assorted beer and all proceeds benefit their local activities and programs. The Arc has proudly served adults with developmental disabilities in our community since 1976. Now in their 43rd year, The Arc serves young adults as they age out of special education at age 22 and continue serving these adults through their lives. They provide 8-10 monthly, evening activities as well as a Day Support Program. Programs and activities also provide respite time for caregivers.

The entrance opens at 5:30 p.m. Free concert parking is available behind the old Jamestown Campground building with additional parking in the Jamestown Settlement auxiliary lot located at the Park and at Jamestown Settlement’s bus lot, if necessary. The off-leash dog park is closed during the concerts to accommodate overflow parking.

Chairs, blankets and your dancing shoes are encouraged! Snacks, picnics and non-alcoholic beverages permitted. All items are subject to inspection before entrance. No alcohol or large, plastic coolers are permitted. To ensure the safety of all guests, only service animals are permitted; pets are not permitted at the concerts.

Jamestown Beach remains open to patrons during the concert while operating on regular schedule.
