The Arts Council eagerly awaits your return once CDC/state recommendations permit re-opening for live events. COVID-19 restrictions abruptly interrupted our twenty-third season of Evenings of Intimate Jazz, but because of the willingness of our artists to reschedule and the support of our patrons to adapt, we are happy to announce the rescheduled dates for the three remaining jazz artists: Diego Figueiredo, Alexis Cole, and Ari and the Alibis.
Come see Ari and the Alibis, an award-winning, high energy, Tampa Bay band that mixes Funk, Jazz and Samba with Blues Soul and Rock, performing Friday, September 11th and Saturday, September 12th.

All performances will start at 8PM (doors open at 7:30PM for seating) at The Arts Council Smithgall Arts Center. Light refreshments will be served.
The re-scheduled events will take place at our new outdoor stage/pavilion where practicing social distancing and keeping frequently used surfaces and restrooms sanitized while still providing an enjoyable atmosphere is possible. At this time, we ask all patrons to wear face masks and practice social distancing while entering, enjoying, and exiting the venue. We continue to monitor CDC recommendations and will publish any changes related to COVID-19 requirements and scheduled performances if they arise.
