The first Sunset Jams Alive After Five concert series featuring Pizazz that was scheduled Thursday at Goldston’s Beach was cancelled because of threatening weather.
The three-concert series is scheduled at White Lake on the third Thursday of June, July and August. The event is presented by the Elizabethtown-White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and Southeastern Health.
The concert admission is free thanks to the sponsors of the event. Sponsors of the event will be at the venue distributing information and free goodies. BladenOnline.com will be on the scene distributing the latest issue of the Bladen County Beautiful magazine.

The Sunset Jams concert series began when the chamber along with Southeastern Health presented the sponsored concert series in 2016 after much success with the Summer Sounds Concerts held in Elizabethtown.
“This is a good way to kick off the start of the tourist season with the locals coming together,” the then Chamber Executive Director Dawn Maynard said during the very first kick off.
The Sunset Jams concert series allows party goers to enjoy a view of the sunset over White Lake while dancing to music and getting to know local businesses.
The Pink Slips will perform July 18 and the Hip Pocket Band will perform August 15. Adult beverages will be available for purchase. No coolers or pets are allowed. The concerts are from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
