QC Jazz Fest 2018
Saturday, June 16th marks the 4th annual Queen City Jazz Fest. Charles Whitfield has curated another great event. This year, the Queen City will play host to Mr. Smooth and Mellow - Will Downing, The Rippingtons, power music couple - Kindred the Family Soul and the incredible and eclectic - Normal Brown. From beginning to end, this one day festival has something for everyone.
I've had to opportunity to catch Will, but the festival was rained out, so I missed him. This will be a treat for me. Kindred, I've covered them a few times and even went to Philly to catch one of their Kindred Presents shows. This is a couple/group you can never grow tired of. So I'm excited to see Fatin and Aja. And Norman, well I caught him last year at the Richmond Jazz Fest and I instantly became a fan. I don;t know too much about The Rippingtons but I'm eager to find out more about them and their music... that's the beauty of music festivals.
