Welcome home from your summer vacay! You’ve gone to the grocery store, vacuumed almost all the sand out of the car and dirty laundry awaits you — just like the credit card bill headed your way.

It’s time to take a vacation from your vacation.

Trade in your beach chair for a prime seat at the Blumenthal Stage Door Theatre when the Jazz Arts Initiative presents Amos Hoffman playing the wicked jazz guitar arrangements of Kenny Burrell. It’s cool, fun, affordable and offers a much needed break from your much needed break.

Stay cool with hot jazz

Let the sunburn heal and bask in the pleasure of an air-conditioned, intimate Uptown jazz club with entertainment by some of the hottest jazz musicians in the country.

Relax with friends, your S.O. or coworkers, and immerse yourself in the tunes of guitarist and composer Kenny Burrell, one of the most respected jazz artists in the world.

Burrell grew up in Detroit and recorded 97 albums under his own name! Kenny Burrell performed with the likes of Duke Ellington, Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and others. Now, that’s some impressive company.

Making the music of Burrell come to life is Amos Hoffman, an Israeli jazz guitarist and oudist known for fusing Middle Eastern rhythms with modern jazz. Hoffman, who lives in Columbia, SC, started playing guitar at age six and picked up the oud a few years later. He’s recorded five solo albums and was awarded one of Israel’s most prestigious prizes – The Landau Prize for Arts and Sciences for Outstanding Achievement in the field of jazz.

Affordable night out fun

If you overpaid for a few cheeseburgers or ice cream cones in paradise, it’s time to give your wallet a rest. Tickets for this stellar show are only $14 in advance or $16 at the door. Performances are Friday, July 13 at 6 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. as well as Saturday, July 14 at 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.

No matter which performance you attend, you are guaranteed a fantastic seat in this venue. If you like sipping cocktails while tapping your feet, The Jazz Room has you covered with a bar right inside the venue.
