You know what they say... "The show must go on!"

That's what the Cedar Rapids Jaycees are saying about the 2020 season of Uptown Friday Nights. Due to COVID-19, the regularly scheduled Uptown Friday Nights season will move forward with changes to keep everyone safe.

One of those changes will be happening this Friday, June 12th. Through the support of sponsors on the community, the Jaycees will be moving forward with a VIRTUAL CONCERT starting at 6:30 p.m.

Two different bands will be hitting the virtual Uptown stage this Friday with the music starting at 7 p.m. Superknot, a Black Sabbath tribute band, will kick things off and get the night started. Everybody's favorite party band, Slap 'N' Tickle, will close the show.

To check out the Virtual Concert this Friday, June 12th, just head on over to this link to get started. Don't forget, the pre-show starts at 6:30 and the music starts at 7 p.m. Grab a cold brew and enjoy the concert!

A couple of places in downtown Cedar Rapids will be showing the concert on their big screens. Rock Bar, located at 219 2nd Avenue SE, and Jimmy Z's located at 112 Second Street SE, will be airing the program in its entirety.

For the past 30 years, Uptown Friday Nights has been a staple event in the Cedar Rapids area. The Cedar Rapids Jaycees are very thankful to have great sponsors and strong community support. Without this support, Uptown Friday Nights as well as a variety of other community projects and programs would not be possible.
