The Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its free Jazz Thursdays concerts on Aug. 13 and 20 from 7 to 9:30 p.m., located on 70th Road between Queens Boulevard and Austin Street.

What makes Jazz Thursdays unique is that the concerts are not held in a park. Instead, Forest Hills residents and visitors will have the chance to enjoy the music right in the heart of the business district, along Forest Hills’ restaurant row. Seating is available.

The performance on Aug. 13 will showcase Bruce “Big Daddy” Wayne and the Soul Messengers, whose performance will include jazz, soul and a tribute to B.B. King. A native of Washington, D.C., Bruce began singing on Harlem street corners at the age of 5 and has since gone on to receive many awards, including the Best Artist Award by Cabaret Clubs of New York.

On Aug. 20, Jazz Thursdays will feature Richard Boulger’s After Hours Band. Boulger has worked with numerous other prominent jazz artists and has toured with Gregg Allman. He also runs two Brooklyn music programs, Music and Arts and Music and Arts Summer Camp, which give inner city kids the chance to work with musicians and develop their own talents.
