-- For the second year, Downtown Irwin's Art & Jazz Nites are presented by Duncan Financial Group, LLC, in association with the Irwin Business and Professional Association. Each night features performers and artists at a variety of locations throughout the borough.
"Art & Jazz Nite is more than simply a great time,” said Kristin Barrett, Marketing Coordinator for Duncan Financial Group. “It helps to support and implement music and culture into the community, and the talent alone is remarkable.
“Events like this not only bring people together to enjoy all that Downtown Irwin has to offer, but they support the strength and growth of the local businesses and vendors as well. For us, the community camaraderie that rises makes it all worth it."
June’s performers include Pittsburgh Jazz Legend: Harold Betters; The Express; Rick Struzzi and Jeremy McCall; Bentley and Romito; Thom Book; and Chris Pangikas and Yolanda Barber. Musicians will entertain visitors indoors and out, with venues including the Cheesecake Caffe, Café Supreme, Colonial Grille/Taproom and the newly opened Main Street Music.
The evening also includes a shop crawl of nearly 20 downtown merchants, each showcasing unique products and services. Visitors who complete a “shop crawl” card will be eligible for prizes from a number of participating businesses, including a final grand prize of Pittsburgh Penguins tickets with access to the First Niagara Club.
In addition to Duncan Financial and the IBPA, Art & Jazz Nites are supported by a number of sponsors, include Ruby-level HC Global/Hensler Communications and Excela Health; Gold-level Promise Hospice, Dollar Bank, S&T Bank and Redstone Highlands; and Silver-level Norwin Chamber of Commerce, Davis Financial Group, Duffy & Nichols and First Niagara Bank.
