Thirty years ago Jerry Jeff decided to show off Texas in the springtime with the first annual Jerry Jeff Walker Birthday Bash in Austin, Texas. Ten years later he fell in love with Belize and wanted to share that, as well…thus began Camp Belize. Fans from all over the world began to attend, returning year after year.
In 2013, as a new part-time resident of Napa, he decided to introduce those fans to the area and Napa Summer Camp was born! Jerry Jeff and the band will once again play the Uptown Theater in downtown Napa on Saturday, August 15 at 8:00pm.
Walker’s fans, known as “Tried and True Warriors”, make these events into social happenings. Napa Summer Camp weekend will include “pickin’ parties” hosted by Bob Vollmer – a loyal Tried & True Warrior from Vacaville – providing opportunities throughout the weekend for making music and forging friendships.
The Uptown Theatre Napa is downtown’s ultimate destination for live entertainment. Nestled in the famed West End district, this stunningly restored art deco masterpiece from 1937 showcases only the finest acts in music and comedy. A historic landmark, the Uptown offers a phenomenal, intimate live show experience with world class sound and site lines. Distance from the last row to the stage is only 98 feet making every seat truly a great seat!
The Uptown has played host to some of the biggest names in blues, rock, jazz, folk, and country entertainment; live music and comedy. Uptown Theatre is a must-see hot spot for anyone visiting Downtown Napa or looking for things to do in the Napa Valley!
