With sincere sadness, we must inform you that we have canceled the 5th Anniversary Celebration set to have taken place at the Folsom Amphitheater on Saturday, September 25, 2021. Even with the best efforts of musicians, vendors, and volunteers, we have not been able to elicit enough support. Low ticket sales have not been enough to sustain the expenses of the performance.
While we have been watching this closely over the last couple of weeks, we have waited until now, focusing on reaching a different outcome. We will not reschedule this performance, and as soon as all pending funds are turned over to us from Eventbrite, we will begin the full refund process, which we expect to start on Thursday, September 23, 2021.
On behalf of the Sacramento Jazz Coop, I thank all who have worked tirelessly in an attempt to make this show happen. A special thanks to those musicians and contractors who offered to take reduced payment and no payment in a couple of cases to avoid show cancellation. We will never forget your kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity.
While disappointing, this one show is canceled. All other SJC performances are on schedule, and we keep adding and even expanding operations. So we hope to see all of you on Monday, October 4, 2021, at the Dante Club when Shanna Carlson performs with Joe Gilman, Shelley Denny, and John McDonald, singing some of “her favorite things.” Until next time, keep the music playing.
