The Streets Were Alive With The Sound Of Music
Downtown Jacksonville came alive with the sounds of Jazz over the Memorial Day Weekend as the 2018 Jacksonville Jazz Festival brought some of the biggest Jazz Artists to the Streets of Jacksonville, Florida. Tina Pruitt and I See Music Photography was downtown with My9oh4 keeping NE Florida #LockedIN.
The festival this year features names such as Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Dianne Reeves, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Vijay Iyer, The Pete Escovedo orchestra and more. Jazz Fest After Dark will return on May 25 and May 26 with an expanded footprint to 13 official host venues.
Since first taking place in 1981, the Jazz Fest has become one of the largest jazz festivals in the country, offering a fun and vibrant street festival atmosphere, and in 2018 you can experience it on an even larger scale!
“We started Jazz Fest After Dark because we wanted to give Jazz Fest attendees a reason to stay Downtown after the last acts of the day wrapped up,” said Jazz Fest After Dark founder Jason Huckleberry Lewis in a release. “Live music is such a big component of Downtown’s nightlife, it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase local businesses while working with the Jacksonville Jazz Festival.”
