Infinity’s Local Music Showcase Saturday in Jamestown

JAMESTOWN — Infinity Visual and Performing Arts is excited to announce their 16th Annual Local Music Showcase (LMS) on Saturday, Sept. 7. It is a night full of music and fun for the community, all to raise awareness and funds for youth music and arts programming at the Infinity Center.

Dubbed “The Night Music Reigns,” Infinity’s Local Music Showcase will take place throughout nine venues in downtown Jamestown and features more than 40 local musical acts. Events begin at 6 p.m. and will last into the night, ending at 2 a.m.

This year’s venues include: Brazil, Forte, Labyrinth Press Co., Pearl City Hops, Shawbucks, The Beer Snob, The Pub, The Spire Theater and The Wine Cellar. These venues have all generously donated their stages and performance spaces to the cause, and are a true testament to community involvement and support in downtown Jamestown.

It takes more than 200 individual volunteers from the community to make Infinity’s Annual Local Music Showcase event a success. All funds raised directly benefit area students and support music and arts education for area young people at the Infinity Center through private lessons, group classes, active learning experiences, ensembles, and performance opportunities.

Infinity’s Grants and Marketing Coordinator, Stephanie Rogers, spearheads the coordination of LMS each year, and says, “It’s such an honor year after year to work with our community who is always so willing to help make this night a success! From the venues and sponsors, to the musicians, to the sound engineers, to the door volunteers, to our local media outlets, there’s nothing quite like seeing everyone come together for Infinity every year on this night. As a non-profit, approximately 15% of Infinity’s annual operating budget comes from fundraising, and LMS is usually our largest fundraising event of the year! We are so grateful to everyone who makes this happen, and our students really get to reap the benefits of the programming that we can offer at Infinity thanks to nights like this!”

Pre-sale wristbands for Local Music Showcase are currently available. Event-goers can purchase them online or in person at the Infinity Center until Friday, Sept. 7 and save $5.

$15 wristbands will be available at FIVE (5) ticketing kiosks on the night of the event.
