Thank you!

A note from Skipper Dan Scarborough

On behalf of The Razzamajazz committee, I would personally like to thank all the entertainers who did such a fantastic job this year! You made it possible to keep this 30-year tradition alive. Thanks to every one of you for a well done job!
I would also like to thank so many people and companies that donated funds along with the matching grant program from the City of Stratford . We appreciate your generous support and look forward to our 31st season in 2022.

~ Skipper Dan

We can’t wait to safely share music with you from the barge this summer.

2021 Fundraising

Our volunteer organization is raising funds to cover the costs of keeping our barge on the river to provide outdoor entertainment for all in Stratford.
We are also making plans to go green and raise the funds needed to replace the existing gas motor with an electric motor.
Any donation you can contribute is greatly appreciated!

2020 season cancelled

2020 was going to be our 30th year on the river in Stratford. Due to the pandemic, we opted to cancel our season because we couldn’t safely physically distance our entertainers and skippers. We also did not want to be responsible for crowds gathering on the shore. We will be back next season and look forward to celebrating our 30th Anniversary in 2021.

Donations are always welcome as we move forward to next season. 

There are two separate organizations that bring music to the Avon River in Stratford. One is our Razzamajazz pontoon boat, and the other is the Stratford Summer Music barge which was featured in this CTV report from July 24. Contrary to the reporting in this story, this is not a new way for people in Stratford to enjoy music.
