Grogus Outdoor Concert under a Full Moon on August 20

Athens, GA - Grogus will perform the next concert in the Sunflower Music Series at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia (2450 South Milledge Avenue, Athens) on Tuesday evening, August 20. The two-hour concert begins at 7 p.m. on the stage of the terraced Flower Garden. A crowd favorite, Grogus will play Latin jazz, traditional Cuban and Caribbean styles and funk versions of jazz standards. They are past recipients of the Flagpole Athens Music Award in both the Jazz and World Music categories. They just make you feel good, listening to the upbeat lyrics and tempo, so kick off your shoes and dance in the super-soft grass in front of the stage. Grogus has been part of the Sunflower Music Series for years, creating a joyful dance party on the lawn. Tickets are $15 each and $5 for children ages 6-12. Admission to each concert includes beverages and light snacks. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and picnic dinners or purchase dinner from Donderos’ Kitchen. Lawn chairs are only allowed for those with physical limitations. In case of inclement weather, the concerts will be held inside the Visitor Center and Conservatory. For information on the concert series or to purchase tickets, call 706-542-1244. Tickets also may be purchased at the Garden Gift Shop or Wuxtry Records in Athens. The Sunflower Music Series is sponsored by Friends of the Garden, Northeast Sales Distributing, Inc., Athens Coca-Cola, Musicians Warehouse, and Flagpole.
