[ARCHIVED] Jazz Night in the Park on June 4

Jazz Night in the Park IG

Join the Town of Fort Mill for a beautiful evening of Jazz! 

Jazz Night in the Park, will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Fort Mill Amphitheater, Walter Elisha Park, 345 N. White St.

The evening includes music from The Minor Majors, a local Family Jazz Trio that are sensational and the Reinaldo Brahn Band. 

Reinaldo Brahn was born in Belo Horizonte ( which means ‘beautiful horizon’), the third largest city in Brazil. Brahn picked up the family guitar at age 12, curiously strummed its chords, and was hooked. He taught himself traditional music and the rhythms of his native state Minas Gerais. Gaining experience playing and singing at festivals, bars and restaurants, he worked with the renowned Brazilian vocal group Soul Makube before embarking on a solo career. Reinaldo's experiences and collaboration with other musicians created his signature style which infuses classic Brazilian rhythms - Samba & Bossa Nova - with Funk and Jazz. 

Reinaldo toured his original music throughout Brazil, and then brought his artistry to the United States. Arriving in Charlotte, NC, in October 2007, he quickly introduced his Brazilian roots to the local scene. He creatively applies robust Brazilian style to popular American music with a truly inspiring result. Reinaldo's specialties include singing and playing authentic Brazilian music, including Musica Popular Brasileira (MPB) and classic Sambas, as well as performing American pop songs with a strong Brazilian influence. 

This is a free event. Food trucks, beer and wine will be available for purchase. Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy!
