Smooth Jazz Summer Nights is the longest running FREE event produced by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC). In order to ensure its continued success, we need your help in following these important policies:

Chairs – Chairs cannot be left unoccupied on the Great Plaza prior to the concert start time. Any chair(s) left unoccupied will be removed from the Great Plaza. We understand this practice was a long-standing tradition, however, the security and safety of our guests visiting the Delaware River Waterfront is of the utmost importance to DRWC.

Alcohol – We would also like to take this opportunity to remind our valued guests that outside alcohol is not permitted inside the gated area of the Great Plaza. Anyone bringing in alcohol can / will be asked to leave the Great Plaza (or any DRWC owned and operated property) and will be escorted off the premises.

Coolers – Coolers are not allowed at the concert on the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing.

Smoking – Smoking is not allowed on the premises.

We hope you have a wonderful visit and enjoy the show!

About Boney James:
It’s been a full quarter-century since a young saxophonist and composer released his debut recording as a leader, Trust. Now, on September 1, 2017, Boney James will release his 16th album, this one titled Honestly. If you sense a direct line between those titles, you’ve already come a long way toward understanding what motivates the four-time GRAMMY nominee and multi-platinum-selling musician.
