Jazz Festival comes to Richmond!

August 11th, 2010

Summer is slowly winding down which means it’s time to take advantage of it while you still can. We were thrilled to hear that a Jazz Festival was coming to Maymont this coming Saturday and Sunday, and couldn’t wait to share the details with our readers.

This two-day, multi-stage event will feature more than 25 artists including Chaka Khan, Boney James, Poncho Sanchez, Norman Brown, Stanley Clarke, Ledisi, Chuck Mangione, Rick Braun and Richard Elliott, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Alex Bugnon. Local performers include Sharon Rae North and Plunky and Oneness. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets, as well as picnics.

What we love is that a portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Maymont Foundation.

The schedule is listed below, and for more information, please visit their web site. Advance tickets are available online and you can also purchase tickets at the door.
