A program of free jazz concerts with the sounds of Ray Charles and Boogaloo is coming to Forest Hills in August.
“Jazz Thursdays”, sponsored by the Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce, will take place on the evenings of August 10 and August 17, and will feature two-and-a-half hours of live music outdoors.
A tribute to Ray Charles, the legendary musician, will be played by Wayne Holmes on August 10 from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. On August 17, the Spanglish Fly, a band that plays a fusion of African-American and Latin sounds known as boogaloo, will also play from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The concerts will be set up on 70th road between Austin Street and Queens Boulevard, where the street will be closed off for dancing and seating for 300 people.
