The Kennedy Center invites you to an amazing evening of music for our Children's Services - JACKS Benefit Concert. JACKS is a Jazz Rock fusion of CT's best musicians coming together for one night and one purpose, to help local children with disabilities and special needs.

A fun Pre-Party starts the evening in the Art/Place Gallery attached to FTC's StageOne with food stations, open bar and a fabulous Silent Auction. After some great food and mingling with friends, we head into StageOne to hear a mix of smooth jazz and rock for one incredible night of entertainment.

Headlining the group is Steve Scales at percussion, formerly with Talking Heads; extraordinary guitarist, Andy Abel; bass player, Dave Livolsi of Kung Fu; vocalist, Timmy Maia; drummer, Trevor Somerville; and playing keyboard is Scott Peckham. Talking Heads/Tom Tom Club Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth will join the group for a Special Encore Performance.

All proceeds will fund, expand and enhance all programs and services provided by The Kennedy Center Children's Services: Birth to Three; After School & Summer Programs; Clinical Supports; Bridgeport Lighthouse Program; Autism Project and our Positive Parenting Program.
