Jazz on the River Concert Series ~ John Greiner's Swing Shift Big Band

Join us for the first year of our Jazz on the River series in Wausau's beautiful downtown River District! Sunday evening concerts begin July 9th through August 27th for a total of eight concerts in this dynamic jazz series! Concerts are held at the Library Plaza from 5pm - 7pm with a rain location downtown in the Wausau Center Mall in front of the old Sears store (easy parking is available in the north Sears ramp at the corner of Forest and 5th Streets).

Our July 9th concert features John Greiner's "Swing Shift" Big Band, featuring the music made famous during the immortal Big Band Era of the 1930’s and 1940’s. The finest musicians in the state of Wisconsin join John in authentically recreating all of the biggest hits played by all of the famous bands of the Big Band Era.

The Library Plaza is located behind Marathon County Public Library, downtown Wausau. Parking is available at and near this picturesque venue. Lawn chairs and picnic dinners are encouraged and welcomed!
