“Wepa!” Mambo Negro, a cutting-edge jazz band with a Latin flavor, are up next.

A performance, entitled “Jazz Night,” kicked off the Downtown Jamaica Music Festival last Thursday. The concert series is co-sponsored by the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation.

The next installment, “Reggae Night,” with the New Kingston Band and DJ DubMaster Chris is scheduled for Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the 165th Street Mall between 89th and Jamaica Avenues.
