For the past couple of years, Atlantic City has been on a campaign to get more families to vacation there. While many people think Atlantic City is all about the casinos and bingo, there is certainly more to do than ever before.

The weekly Thursday “Jazz On The Beach” free concert series is a hidden gem. One of the best parts is the local that performs before the headlining act. The concert series started July 3 and runs until August 28, 2014. Put July 31 concert on your calendar, because the Chicken Bone Youth Jazz Ensemble will be performing!

Some of this year headliners for the series will include: Kameelah Samar Quartet, Mimi Jones, Tia Fuller, Helen Sung, Michael Pedicin, Wilson Chembo, Sean Jones, and Ralph Peterson. Indie Soul has been informed that Baltimore’s very own John Lamkin II may grace the stage. This is all being brought to you by the Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation Inc. and the Atlantic City Free Public Library. For more information: www.chickenbonebeach.org or call 609-441-9064.
