In the recent past, the free concert-and-film events - sponsored by the Old Orchard business district in Webster Groves with music programming help from Euclid Records - have included bands from a variety of genres, notably indie rock and Americana, but this year's lineup includes several acts of potential interest to local jazz fans. The 2013 schedule is:
Friday, June 14: Javier Mendoza & Raiders of the Lost Ark
Friday, June 21: North of the Quarter & Night at the Museum
Friday, June 28: Jim Manley & The Big Chill
Friday, July 5: Miss Jubilee & Some Like It Hot
Friday, July 12: Erin Bode & Undefeated (2012 Academy Award winning documentary)
The Old Orchard Gazebo Music and Movie Series is free and open to the public. Music begins at 7:00 p.m. with films following at about 9:00 p.m. in Gazebo Park at the corner of Big Bend and Oxford in Webster Groves. Concert attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs, and food and beverages from area restaurants will be on sale.
