Cheraw is Dizzy with Jazz!
Jazz king John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie was born in Cheraw in 1917. “Dizzy” was a founder of modern jazz, an innovative trumpeter known for his bent horn, bulging cheeks and sense of humor. Gillespie, who was famous around the world, almost always opened his performances with “I'm Dizzy Gillespie from Chee-raw, South Carolina.”
On the 85th anniversary of his birth, a seven-foot bronze statue of Gillespie playing his trademark bent horn was erected on the Cheraw Town Green. The Dizzy Gillespie Home Site Park also celebrates Cheraw's most famous son. The park features modern sculpture, eclectic stainless steel benches and a funky stainless steel fence.
