Jacobs School faculty to perform at the Sixth Annual B’Town Jazz Fest

Now in its sixth year, B’Town Jazz Fest will once again take place at the Monroe County Convention Center, in the heart of downtown Bloomington.

B’Town Jazz Fest showcases the amazing jazz talent in Bloomington, and features a wide range of professional, college, and high school musicians from the Bloomington area. This year’s lineup features over ten bands, including: the Postmodern Jazz Quartet, the Al Cobine Big Band, the B-Town Bearcats, the Jazz Fables Quintet, and the Jamey Aebersold Quartet.

Several Indiana University jazz faculty members will be performing, including Pat Harbison, Tom Walsh, Wayne Wallace, John Raymond, Tierney Sutton, Steve Houghton, Jeremy Allen, Luke Gillespie, and Walter Smith.

Jazz Fest is one of the biggest and most anticipated music festivals held in Bloomington. Timed to cap off the summer season and welcome Indiana University students back to Bloomington, the festival is free and open to the public.

Food, Beer, and Wine will be available for purchase (alcohol sales to those 21 and up will require ID). Free parking will be available at the Convention Center and at the Fourth Street garage.

Stay tuned for more information and updates as the B’Town Jazz Fest draws near!
