Concert Time 7:45pm & 9:30pm

Yellowjackets made serious waves in jazz radio, garnering public and critical
acclaim. The unmistakable talents of the individuals involved still have the
unique signatures that shine through regardless of their musical setting,
whether it be blistering-hot fusion or full-blown acoustic jazz. In other words,
their music has evolved and matured considerably, but there’s no mistaking
that it is Yellowjackets you are hearing.
