27TH ANNUAL BERKS JAZZ FEST OPENS MARCH 31st
The two week long, ten day long jazz emersion experience AKA the Berks Jazz Festival begins the last Friday in March on the 31st and extends to the second Sunday in April on the 9th. The opening night Celebration features Patti Austin, Jonathan Butler and Gerald Albright at the ornate Santander Center in downtown Reading, PA.
The Berks Jazz Fest is true aficionado’s delight as legends like ‘FOURPLAY’ with Nathan East, Bib James, Harvey Mason and Chuck Loeb perform the following Saturday night, but if you are bored during the day, the always outrageous and flamboyant Nick Colionne and Eric Darius comes back for a 2 o’clock Day Party!
And if you didn’t get enough Jamaica Funk on Friday, Larry Graham & Graham Central Station are due to pull their west coast baggage into the Hilton Double Tree at 10 that night. But do stay for “SNARKY PUPPY”, a Super Band tribute on Sunday afternoon featuring Randy Brecker, Dean Brown, Bill Evans and Tom Kennedy.
