Cool Benefit Concert Series Happening At Wellington Square Courtyard
Looking to get some live music back in your life? How about enjoying it at beautiful Wellington Square Courtyard? Now it's a reality.
Starting on June 5th, there will be a benefit concert series that runs the entire course of the summer. The best part? Every concert will be on a Saturday night!
Music at Wellington Square Courtyard benefits Amarillo native JoeBob McCartt who passed away due to COVID-19 complications back in December 2020. The lineup will feature a myriad of performers from several different genres. The primary genre will be jazz, but there will be some blues and big band as well.
It all kicks off June 5th with Amarillo's own Insufficient Funds. This jazz quartet will then cede the stage the following week to The Fwoops. Fans of Polk Street Jazz and Esquire Jazz Band will be overly thrilled as each band has multiple shows on the lineup.
According to his obituary, JoeBob McCartt was an important piece of Amarillo history as was a key figure in revitalizing Downtown Amarillo. Back in 2006, he led a group that purchased the Chase Tower, and he was also a big part of the redevelopment of the Woolworth building and Levine's building.
All shows will be from 7-9pm. Tickets for Music at Wellington Square $12 presale and $15 at the gate, and will go on sale sometime this week. They are also still looking for vendors to setup and the vendor fee is only $25. To see the entire lineup of performers and to get more info, click here for the Wellington Square Facebook Page.
