This exciting concert series, brought to you by Leonard Thompson’s M.A.N.D.A.T.E. Records, features three concerts over the summer. We are pleased to be the title sponsor for this year’s series.

The first concert in the series is on June 13. Jessy J is turning up the heat on the saxophone, Melina will dazzle with her R&B-tinged vocals and the CEO’s Rhythm Section will keep the good vibes going throughout. It’s going to be a great evening of good music.

The hits keep on coming on July 11 as Chanté Moore, L.A. Collective and J Boykin hit the stage, then again on August 15 when we welcome Daneen Wilburn, Reggie Codrington and Nick Colionne.

ConcertSeries_Poster

The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, located in southeastern San Diego, continues to move the “Revitalizing Together” initiative forward with the launch of JACOBS PRESENTS, a first-class concert series designed to present artists and programs that appeal to audiences throughout the region. The concert series kicks off on January 22 with award-winning R&B band Mint Condition, who will take the stage in the Jacobs Center’s Celebration Hall. The Hall, completed in 2008, features concert-quality acoustics, lighting, and an intimate 760 seats, producers hope to establish this as San Diego’s newest quality venue for live music.

“Revitalizing a community requires multiple partners and innovative initiatives to succeed. We believe strongly in the power of the arts as a community building vehicle and economic engine,” explained JCNI President and CEO Reginald Jones. “JACOBS PRESENTS is one part of our increased focus on social enterprise. The effort will bring high level performing arts to our events center and stimulate the local economy.”

Area Councilmember Myrtle Cole is enthusiastic about this venture. Cole states, “JACOBS PRESENTS has potential to ignite the local economy by bringing ticket buying concert-goers from around San Diego to our community. This can stimulate support of our local businesses, including eateries in Market Creek Plaza adjacent to the Jacobs Center.” Further, says Cole, “more San Diegans can discover the diversity and cultural richness of the community.”

In addition to Mint Condition, the complete 2014 concert series includes jazz vocalist Michelle Coltrane featuring Shea Welch and Ensemble in an April 25th Benefit Concert. Coltrane is the daughter of the legendary saxophonist John Coltrane. Poncho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band take the stage on June 20th. Te Vaka, the Oceanic music group that performs original contemporary Pacific music or “South Pacific Fusion”, rounds out the currently announced series with a September 2014 date to be announced.
