Jazz in June continues with Swing Fever

Swing Fever performance of "Take Five" at Wilderness Ridge in Lincoln.

Swing Fever, a band that includes UNL’s Jerry Renaud, continues the 2015 Jazz in June concert series with a performance today.

The concerts are at 7 p.m. Tuesdays in June in the sculpture garden west of UNL’s Sheldon Museum of Art. Although the Jazz in June concert series is free, those in attendance are encouraged to make a donation of $10 per family to help ensure its continuation.

The event also includes a walking tour of the Love Garden and a market featuring 25 vendors with food, drinks and artisan-made crafts.

The Jazz in June Market, located at 12th and R streets, opens at 5 p.m. The walking tour, led by Ann Powers, landscape assistant with Landscape Services, begins at 6 p.m. at the Sheldon’s east entrance. Powers will discuss the perennials, new additions and maintenance of Love Garden, which is located on the south side of Love Library.

Swing Fever will play a mix of New Orleans-inspired music, ranging from traditional to modern sounds of the Crescent City. Members of the Lincoln band include Renaud, professor of broadcasting, Gene Davis, Eric Tombs and Pance Zaev.
