Jazz At The Amp will no longer be held at the Westerville Alum Creek Park North Amphitheater.

The Jazz At The Amp concert series was created by SEMM Foundation, owners of Central Ohio's 24 hour Jazz Radio Station, Jazz 98.5 FM, WSAX and owners of the trademarked Jazz At The Amp name.  In 2016, 2017 and 2018, SEMM Foundation and its Jazz radio station organized and presented this spectacular summer Jazz series at the Alum Creek Park North Amphitheater.

A Message from Jazz 98.5 FM, WSAX Management

We wish to thank all of our listeners and supporters that have both supported our station and attended our Jazz At The Amp concerts the past three years. 

Many of our friends, listeners and supporters have encouraged us to speak out about a subject of which for many months we’ve chosen to take the high road and say nothing at all.

This summer in 2019, our organization will no longer present Jazz At The Amp in Westerville.

Since 2016, our non-profit organization, SEMM Foundation, and jazz radio station of dedicated and passionate volunteers, proposed, created, developed, implemented and managed the Jazz At The Amp summer concert series.

It’s often been said that imitation is the best form of flattery.  Based upon the success and national acclaim received by our Jazz At The Amp series Westerville has chosen to exclude us, eliminate our involvement and present a separate jazz series.

We have been contacted by so many people that are either confused; are not aware of our non-involvement or misled to believe we continue to be involved; or have heard of our exclusion and want to take action to show their discontent.

Don't be confused.  If you’re planning to attend this summer’s concert series in support of our station, we will not be participating and therefore, we will not be there.  By attending the new jazz series, you are not supporting us or those truly interested in keeping jazz alive.  While we’re not suggesting you not attend their new jazz series, before attending, perhaps you should ask yourself how much longer should you allow others to take something away from you that you’ve worked so very hard to build, and why should you allow others to benefit from the sweat and fruit of your labor?

Central Ohio’s real Jazz At The Amp concert series will return again in 2020 at a new location.

Thank you

Support The Effort

Thanks to all of you for supporting our effort to set the record
straight about our exclusion from presenting our Jazz At The Amp concerts in Westerville. The City of Westerville and their Parks and Recreation Director and staff have attempted to mislead the public
and discredit us in the eyes of other communities to prevent us
from presenting our concerts elsewhere. They also attribute your attendance and the popularity of the series to their efforts only. A special thanks to Jazz for their support and article about this issue.

We know how much you love jazz especially when it's free to attend
but you should TAKE A STAND and support our station! How do you stop bullying and how do you stop them from taking advantage of groups or controlling facilities and the programming you enjoy most? You do so by NOT ATTENDING THEIR CONCERTS THIS SUMMER ... since they think they're responsible for your attending and downplay the roll of our jazz station and contributions to bringing jazz concerts and you to Westerville.

Now you can
take us
wherever you go
