2017's True Blue Jazz Fest kicks off with a BIG Opportunity for young jazz students from our all around our Delaware Beach communities and the region. It's our Youth Jazz Appreciation Night on Wednesday October 11th. After a huge launch in 2016, a turnout that filled the House....with the geneorous support of the Bethany Blues Management & Staff....Youth jazz Night is now an annual part of our entire Straight Ahead Jazz Festival Concept for our True Blue Jazz Fest.
We created a night that is a "Mix and Mingle" for Music Families, their School Music Program Directors, & our working professional Jazz Players that come show up to play, talk Jazz, and workshop a bit with the kids. But the focus of the evening is on the Kids! You’ll hear the Jazz Players of tomorrow play rehearsed material, and will even have the Pros & Music Directors work them through an impromptu Jazz Jam.
Peggy Raley & Eddie Sherman will Host this new twist on the old “Band Boosters” concept. Food & Beverages will be available through Bethany Blues Restaurant. A percentage of proceeds from wil be donated to True Blue Jazz. So....C'mon out & support your Schools' Youngbloods of Straight Ahead Jazz & 2017's True Blue Jazz Fest!
