Portage Library "Music on the Menu" to feature Keweenaw Area Jazz Band Aug. 31

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library invites everyone to bring a lunch and enjoy "Music on the Menu," an outdoor series of events on the dock outside the library this summer.

The Keweenaw Area Jazz Band Summer Combo with Pat Valencia will perform from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 31.

KAJB - D.J.M.I.A. is a group of local students who perform jazz with improvisation as a focus. They have learned a completely new set of cool tunes from bossa nova to the blues and will delight the audience with their talent on saxophones, keyboard, guitar, bass and drums.

"This will be the final Music on the Menu performance for the summer," said Chris Alquist, Portage Library Community Programs coordinator. "Many thanks go to all the amazing musicians who have performed and to the wonderful folks who have attended. It's been a great summer!"

Library events are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit us at and on Facebook.
