Jumping to Jams at July Concerts

If you’re like me, you’re ready to shed the seemingly endless winter off and lie back on the plush green grass and relax to the raw delta blue tunes from bands like Erin Harpe and the Delta Swingers on the lawn of The Plattsburgh Center for the Arts. The sixth annual Jumpin’ in July musical event starts July 9. Regional and national bands will perform on the lawn of the center every Thursday in July from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. In case of rain, the event will be moved inside The Strand Theatre.

If you’re like me, you’re ready to shed the seemingly endless winter off and lie back on the plush green grass and relax to the raw delta blue tunes from bands like Erin Harpe and the Delta Swingers on the lawn of The Plattsburgh Center for the Arts. The sixth annual Jumpin’ in July musical event starts July 9.

Regional and national bands will perform on the lawn of the center every Thursday in July from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. In case of rain, the event will be moved inside The Strand Theatre. Weather throughout the years has held up and been fantastic, says Joshua Kretser, interim executive director.

The Plattsburgh Center for the Arts and the Clinton County Chamber of Commerce are collaborating, using Jumpin’ in July to showcase the Chamber’s networking event, Business After Hours. The program allows guests a chance to meet people representing products and services “in a relaxed social setting,” according to Kretser. The two events will complement each other and make Business After Hours “more interactive with music and the bands.”

Jumpin’ in July brings the area together, Kretser says. “It’s a fun event that allows us to give back to the community and local businesses.”
