Syracuse Jazzfest – This Weekend!

If you love music (and who doesn’t?), you won’t want to miss the 30th annual Syracuse Jazzfest this weekend.  The free music festival kicks off at 3:30 on Friday, June 22nd at Jamesville Beach Park.  This year’s lineup includes an array of styles including soul, funk, rock-n-roll, blues, R&B, gypsy music, and of course, all kinds of jazz.  Average White Band, Donovan, Harri Stojka, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, and the Billy Vera Big Band are some of the performance highlights of the weekend.  Grammy award-winning saxophonist Kenny G will close the evening on Friday.  The music continues at 3:30 on Saturday, and concludes with a fireworks display around 11:00 PM.  Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on, and get there a little early if you want to claim a good seat (it’s first-come-first-serve).
