Music and dancing on the waterfront

Newburgh – Enjoy olde school, Motown, Latin & Reggae dance music? Dance or just pat your foot down memory lane at the event of the season. The Ferry Godmother offers yet another great event at the City of Newburgh waterfront, the Newburgh Jazz Series 2010’s After Party Fundraiser. On the turntables (do they have them anymore?) is a Newburgh Jazz Series sponsor, and DJ great Rene Campos of DMU Music. At the food table will be the Hudson Valley’s best down home southern food caterer Mz. Hattie. The After Party has become an annual tradition that follows the last concert of the series; it is the grand finale. It is an important component because it assists with raising the money necessary to continue providing quality free jazz concerts. It will be held at the Newburgh Ferry Boat landing on Thursday August 26th, 10:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m. The party is a \”blast from the past\” evening and \”creative attire\” is encouraged. Admission includes food and non-alcoholic beverages. Tickets are limited and can be purchased at the concerts or from the Ferry Godmother at the Newburgh Ferry booth during regular ferry booth hours, Monday-Friday 5:00 – 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. For more information email the Ferry Godmother at
