We have been season subscribers to the JAG for several years and would eat hot dogs or KFC to maintain our subscription. Weather seeing this dynamic orchestra at the Southern or Lincoln Theaters or outdoors at the Jazzoo, we have always left energized and smiling.

We attended a musical presentation from the Columbus Jazz Orchestra at the Southern Theater. Before intermission was the band, and after intermission was the band with a guest singer. Nice variety of songs and great quality.
