Serious bummer…

Last week, the following note was posted on the Facebook page of the Beacon Jazz Festival, a one-day fest which was slated to take place at Seeger Riverfront Park in Beacon on Saturday, June 25 with the Sun Ra Arkestra headlining:

Dear Friends of the Beacon Jazz Festival:

It is with a heavier heart than you can possibly know that we must inform you that, because our main sponsor has pulled out at the last minute, we are forced to CANCEL what would have been this year’s second annual Beacon Jazz Festival on June 25th.

Yes, you read that right — this year’s Beacon Jazz Festival will NOT take place this summer after all.

Although modest by any standards, our budget simply couldn’t take the impact this main sponsor’s pulling out made and we have been unable to secure separate funding in time to proceed with this year’s festival.

On behalf of Six String Productions and everyone behind the scenes who work to make the festival happen, please accept our massive apologies for not being able to hold a second annual Beacon Jazz Festival this year. Watch this space as we strive to make another wonderful jazz event at Seeger Riverfront Park possible soon.

Sorry, one and all. Peace.
