There are many ways to ring in the New Year, and the Jacoby Arts Center in Alton hopes you will consider jazzing yours up a bit. It's part of the "Last Saturday Night" concert series, which as luck would have it, falls on the holiday. The show will be headlined by Cheri Evans and CEEJazzSoul, who says there is a great mix of music and musicians planned for this show.

Evans comments

The group has been together for two years, but this will be the first time they are performing in Alton. Tickets are $20, or $18 for seniors. There will be complimentary champagne for a toast to the New Year. Doors open at 6, with music at 7pm. For more information, call 462-5222.
