Enjoy a live performance by the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s “Jazzlinks” group showcasing the popular music of 1940s to the 1960s!

There are so many different styles evolved during these eras – Boogie Woogie, Jazz, Rock, R&B, and Pop — songs like Numbers Boogie, Straighten Up and Fly Right, The General Jumped at Dawn, and Blue Suede Shoes – all the way to The Temptations and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. It’s a fun way to learn some African American history as WBTT’s “Jazzlinks” shares information and get to hear music that will undoubtedly have you moving and up on your feet!

*RAIN OR SHINE. In case of inclement weather, this program will be moved to the Municipal Auditorium (801 N Tamiami Trl, Sarasota, 34236)

About Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT)

Founded in 1999, the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is the only professional black theater company on Florida’s West Coast. Its mission is to produce professional theatre that promotes and celebrates African American history and experience, engages a broad base of patrons and audiences, supports the development of a dynamic group of aspiring artists, and builds self-esteem in youth of color.

About Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe “Jazzlinks”

African American history is deep and rich, from the pouring of the foundations of our great country to its current continuing evolution, African Americans have been there. Jazz Links is a program that allows reflection on specific periods in that history, such as The Harlem Renaissance or The Civil Rights Movement. It provides us a platform where we can acknowledge significant contributions, remember where we’ve been, and educate so that history is not forgotten.
