Each year people pack the area between Michigan Avenue and Elm Street for the Queen City Jazz Festival. For the 5th year in a row the festival will delight Queen City jazz fans, but this year is extra special since it marks the 75th anniversary of the Colored Musicians Club!
A beer tent and food vendors will keep the parched and hungry crowd sated as the day’s great line-up unfolds, providing ample entertainment.
The event runs from noon – 8pm on Saturday. Here’s the schedule:
12:00 PM – Ladies First Big Band
1:00 PM – Charles Reedy Jazz Quartet
2:00 PM – Jazz Line
3:00 PM – Cadenza
4:00 PM – Sabu Adeyola Band
