Chesapeake Swingband on the Square

The Leonardtown Summer Concert Series in partnership with the Potomac Jazz & Seafood Festival presents a free, jazz era event on Friday, July 12, 2019. The Chesapeake Swingband will perform from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM in Leonardtown Square. The evening will be a celebration of jazz throughout the 20’s (jazz age), the 30’s-40s (swing era), and the 50’s-90’s (modern and Latin jazz). There will be a special performance from Ballet Caliente during the evening.

Join us for this very special evening celebrating the influence of jazz through the ages at the official Kick-off Party for the Potomac Jazz & Seafood Festival Weekend Celebration. Come in your choice of period costume from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or 50’s. There will be raffles and prizes awarded for costume.

The celebration continues with jazz-themed after parties at the following restaurants in Historic Leonardtown: The Rex, Social Coffeehouse, Olde Town Pub.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
