Upbeat on Jackson

Call for Musicians

"Upbeat on Jackson" is a monthly community concert series that takes place in the Central District at Ernestine Anderson Place once a month. The concert series is meant to pay tribute to the extraordinary legacy of jazz singer Ernestine Anderson long time resident of Seattle’s Central District and graduate of Garfield High School. The music series aims to bring community members together to create entertaining and spirited events that celebrate the history of the neighborhood.

The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) and Seattle Department of Neighborhoods have joined together to host a new concert each month. Shows are free and open to the public and focus on a variety of genres with an emphasis on local musicians. Shows tentatively occur on the second Saturday of the month from 7:30-9:30pm. All concerts are free to the public. Musicians will be paid an honorarium.


The concert committee is currently soliciting applications from bands and solo acts to perform as opening and main acts for the remaining shows. If selected, acts will receive a small stipend upon their performance.
