Listen: Rex Inglis with the Roaring 20's Jubilee in Old Sacramento.
Live banjo, ragtime and jazz music will fill the air and delight visitors to the Old Sacramento Waterfront when the Roaring 20’s Jubilee takes place over the course of three fun-filled days and evenings starting on Friday, September 30 and running through Sunday, October 2, 2022. With nearly 60 talented musicians ranging in age from 12 to 95 with some from the local area and others from as far away as Costa Rica, the inaugural event is highlighted by FREE live music at various venues in the daytime and special ticketed performances in the evenings.
The line-up of entertaining musicians includes talented local youth performers such as the New Traditionalists (TNT), Tower Bridge Trad, and Syncopating Sea-Monkeys to some of the top banjo players in the country, including Bill Dendle & “Fast” Eddie Erickson, Dave Marty, Tyler Jackson, Bill Lowrey and Steve Peterson, just to name a few.
Free musical performances are scheduled to take place in four locations throughout the historic district – Our Place Event Space & Kitchen (1107 Firehouse Alley), Steamers Bakery & Cafe (101 K Street), Sacramento History Museum (101 I Street) and inside the B.F. Hastings Annex (located next to the Sacramento Visitors Center at 1002 Second Street) – on Friday and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. These free performances are open to the public, all ages are welcome, and advance registration is not required.
Then on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-10 p.m., exciting live banjo shows take center stage at three locations, including at Hoppy’s Railyard Kitchen & Hopgarden, Our Place Event Space & Kitchen, and inside the Sacramento History Museum (Friday evening only). Event badge holders are able to move freely between the venues if they want to follow their favorite performers who rotate among the participating locations. Evening tickets cost $25 per person per night and are valid at all three venues; online “early bird” tickets are available for $20 per person per night if purchased before September 29. Wrist badges will be available for purchase at all the locations on Friday and Saturday as well as in the evening at the door of each venue for the night shows as space allows. And, for music lovers who want to attend both nights and have access to all shows, the cost is $45 per person for the full weekend package.
The Roaring 20’s Jubilee is proudly presented by the Peninsula Banjo Band and the youth bands portion is sponsored by the Sacramento Jazz Education Foundation.
