JFFA Season Concert Series

Each year JFFA offers a diverse and thrilling season concert series, bringing people together and enriching lives through the presentation of exceptional touring artists. 

The performing arts offer an accessible and creative heartbeat for all, building a strong sense of place and community. We love nothing more than interacting with you through music, theater, dane, comedy, and storytelling.  

Due to the impacts that COVID-19 has had on the arts & culture industry, our traditional season concert series is not being offered this year. Rest assured that we are actively finding new and creative ways to reach YOU, our beloved audience, and plan to announce a full season series in May 2021 so that we can all look forward in hope and togetherness.

JFFA remains committed to presenting progressive work intended to surprise and delight, defy expectations, and expand our collective understanding of the world that we share. 

 Stay safe and healthy and please continue to check back for news and details on upcoming performances!

Concerts At-a-glance

Blues is a Woman

POSTPONED UNTIL 2021-22 SEASON

at the Port Angeles Performing Arts Center

Pamela Rose is a San Francisco jazz and blues vocalist who has thrilled local and international audiences for decades with her swinging, soulful style. Pamela’s latest ensemble project, Blues Is A Woman, is a theatrical concert celebrating women blues artists from Ma Rainey to Bonnie Raitt. A brilliant ensemble of women musicians perform musical treasures as they tell stories and transport the audience back to the early roots of America’s most enduring art form.

Rose’s Blues Is A Woman blurs the boundaries between concert and theater, using storytelling and music to bring to life the colorful history of the bold and singular women who wrote and popularized the blues.

Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles

POSTPONED UNTIL 2021-22 SEASON

at the Port Angeles Performing Arts Center

Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles® – the first all female mariachi in the United States – is that they have paved the way for other female mariachi groups to exist at the professional level.

Reyna, which was formed in 1994, has truly broken the stereotypes surrounding Mariachi music. In a musical landscape of songs that are often written by men, and for men – Reyna has created their own history. Under the leadership of eight-time Grammy nominee, Maestro Jose Hernandez, Reyna was the first female Mariachi to break out of local level recognition to international stardom with original compositions, arrangements and interpretations of Mariachi Classics. As performers, their passionate vocals, ability to engage the audience and stellar musicality is second to none.

Jim Byrnes Band

POSTPONED UNTIL 2021-22 SEASON

at the Port Angeles Performing Arts Center

Jim Byrnes was born in St. Louis, Missouri – that’s blues country. By age thirteen, Jim was singing and playing blues guitar. His first professional gig was in 1964. Over the years, he has had the great fortune to appear with a virtual who’s who of the blues. From Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker to Taj Mahal and Robert Cray, Jim has been on the blues highway for 45 years.

Three time Juno Award winner, Jim Byrnes lives and breathes music. For nearly fifty years he’s crooned, drawled, belted, hollered and sweet talked more songs into a microphone than most people ever get to hear in a single lifetime.

Jim’s first love is the blues. His evocative, smoky vocals are found in a truth that doesn’t come overnight.

 Collision of Rhythm 

POSTPONED UNTIL 2021-22 SEASON

at the Port Angeles Performing Arts Center

Collision of Rhythm is a duo comprised of the tap-dancing classical virtuoso, Aaron Williams, and beatbox-juggling keynote speaker, Bronkar Lee.

With drumming, tap dancing, rhythmic juggling, marimba, piano, saxophone, flute and so much more, the show has been described as “Stomp meets Blue Man meets Cirque du Soleil.”
