Music@BCM: Hot Magnolias
Thursday, July 19, 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
The Hot Magnolias, an eight-piece New Orleans-style party band, brings its special blend of classic jazz, Cajun/Creole and funk to Music@BCM on Thursday, July 19.

Formed in the summer of 2013, the Cincinnati-based group includes vocals, horns, banjo, guitar, drums, bass and keyboard. Nominated "Best Jazz Band" in 2014 and 2015 for CityBeat's Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, the group plays authentic, true-to-the-roots New Orleans music - as one band member says, "like they were born in the bayou."

Music@BCM continues July 26 when the Bluebirds are cleared for take off and August 2 with Ben Levin and the Heaters.

Music@BCM concerts are held in the museum's outdoor amphitheater at 1600 Montague Road-Devou Park, Covington, KY 41011. In case of rain, performances move indoors. Parking is free. Doors open at 6 p.m.; the concert runs from 7 to 9 p.m.

Admission is $5 plus tax for adults and $3 plus tax for children ages 3-12. Museum members pay for one admission and get the second one free. Adult beverages are available for purchase. Concert-goers can also purchase food by Colonial Cottage of Erlanger, KY, supporting local community organizations.

Music@BCM is sponsored by Ashley Development, Colonial Cottage, Ruth Faragher & Family, Ersatz & Moot Point Railway Company and the Alumni of WNOP Jazz, Hummel Hatfield Insurance Agency, George & Margaret McLane Foundation, Reality Tuesday Café, KW Mechanical and the Rich & Lisa Boehne Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation.
