M&T presents CMC Centennial Jazz Festival

Get ready Buffalo… this city is about to come alive with the sounds of some serious jazz! Starting on Monday, July 24, the Colored Musicians Club (CMC) is launching a week of live jazz performances in the form of the highly anticipated CMC Centennial Jazz Festival.

The event is part of CMC’s 100 year anniversary. We’re talking about a club that has helped to keep jazz alive in Buffalo for 100 years… a club that continues to promote jazz in various ways, so that we can all experience the steeped and storied rhythmic sounds that have been coursing through this city’s veins for a century.
