Jam to Grow at 2nd Saturday Downtown


I’ve been reporting monthly on Tucson’s wildly popular urban street fair since it started up on May 8, 2010 along Congress Street downtown.  I only missed posting about February 8, 2014 since I was between blogsites (Tucsoncitizen.com shut down on Jan. 31, and I started with Blog for Arizona on Feb. 11, 2014). But I faithfully blogged about the Feb. 8 urban fest on my own Facebook page (probably just from habit alone).

Coming up on March 8 on the Scott Avenue Stage (between Congress and Broadway) are several musicians:

4 to 5:15 p.m. Reno del Mar (Latin Jazz, Americana, Tango, Gypsy, Flamenco)

5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Bold as Love (Blues/Rock)

7 to 8 p.m. The Modeens (‘60s inspired Garage/Rock/Pop)

Also invited via Facebook (FB) to a new event,  Jam to Grow, at 245 E. Congress, Ste. 171, from 6 to 8 p.m.:

Musical Improvisation and Spoken Word: Collaboration and experimentation like never before. We’ve partnered up with master percussionist and recording artist Richard Noel to create a very special fusion of musical improvisation and spoken word.
Increasing creativity through music and spoken word poetry.
Bring your blankets and join us in our temporary pop up coworking space for Second Saturdays Downtown.


Richard Noel is a very talented drummer/percussionist and plays with his Caribbean music/dance troupe called SticksNFingers.  He  is originally from Trinidad and Tobago.

Most activities are FREE, unless otherwise noted.

More about the art gallery receptions, children’s activities/film by Cinema La Placita,  restaurant specials at http://www.2ndsaturdaysdowntown.com/schedule. Note that they have a new look to their blogsite.

  1. Thousands of people there at tonight’s 2nd Saturday, overflowing on Congress Street. Jammed on drums with Richard Noel, inspiring us to think about creativity, vibes, ideas, and life in general. Enjoyed the receptions at Yay Big and George Strasburger’s studios, then some bratwurst at Haus of Brats food truck. Also watched performer “redgirlme13” with parasol move to money near Scott Avenue. Lots of fun, be there next month on April 13.
