By Andrea Flores, CBS4 Denver | “For many music fans, First Friday Jazz in the Park at Sonny Lawson Park in Denver was the first show they’ve seen in months. The Friday night concert was outdoors and socially distanced.

“It gives me chills,” said organizer Norman Harris. “People are getting vaccinations, and I feel like we’re getting COVID behind us. It’s time we get on the offensive and really start to claim our lives back.”

Five Points’ First Friday Jazz in the Park is part of the First Friday Jazz Hop series. The monthly Jazz Hop series started in January of 2020, but was forced to put indoor shows on hold due to COVID-19.”
