History Museum schedules
fall Twilight Tuesdays concerts

The Missouri History Museum has announced the musical lineup for their fall 2009 Twilight Tuesdays series of free outdoor concerts, and there are three shows featuring artists of potential interest to jazz fans.

The New Orleans-style funk/R&B combo Gumbohead will kick off the fall series this Tuesday, August 25, with singer Denise Thimes performing the following week on Tuesday, September 1. The Legacy Jazz Quintet also will appear in the series, reprising their tribute to Miles Davis' album Kind of Blue on Tuesday, September 22.

Non-jazz performances will include the Rhythm Rockers (September 8), Dr. Zhivegas (September 15), the Fabulous Motown Review (September 29) and Boogie Chyld (October 6).

All concerts are free and open to the public, and take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. outside the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. Listeners are encouraged to bring their own lawn chair and/or blanket. In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be rescheduled to a later date. For more information, you can call the Twilight Tuesdays hotline after 3:00 p.m. on concert days at 800-916-8212.
