“Like jazz music, a pop-up lives in the moment,” said Karen Gordon, the founder of Garden City Jazz. “And while I love music in nontraditional spaces, I’m constantly asked when Augusta will have a jazz venue. This seems to be a step in the right direction.”

To reserve a table, call (762) 233-5299 or kgordon@gardencityjazz.com or visit popupjazz13.bpt.me.
