1. The series lasts all summer!
Every Thursday, between June 1 and August 17, there will be concerts scheduled at the same time and place, from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Cole Park Amphitheater.
2. It’s free!
In its nearly three decade history, there has never been a charge to attend the Bay Jammin’ Concert and Cinema Series, a free non-profit serving the city with family-friendly music and movies throughout the summer. Even the parking is free, so arrive early for closer parking.
3. Fun for the whole family.
All ages are invited! Bring your family, friends or date for a quality night out together. Enjoy the music and engage in lively conversation. Fido can come out, too, as long as he’s on a leash.

The lineup includes the Scarecrow People, a longtime Corpus Christi tradition, serving up ‘80s and retro; Texas alternative country by Steven James and the Jaded; folk and Americana by The Independent Thieves; Somethin’ Silky, a trio dishing out funk, blues and R&B; surf rockers Aloha Dave and the Tourists, and Any Colour You Like: A Tribute to Pink Floyd.
