Redwood City will host outdoor jazz concerts every Monday evening from June 18th through August 6th featuring the Bay Area's very best jazz artists and other artists from around North America. The jazz is on from 6 - 8pm, and everyone can enjoy the music, eat at one of the many great restaurants on the surrounding streets, and if the mood strikes - DANCE! The all-star lineup will be sure to make for many jazzed-up Monday evenings in Downtown Redwood City. More information for Downtown Jazz at: http://www.redwoodcity.org/events/jazz.html
