ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The 1st annual Roselle Park Jazz Festival takes place on Saturday, July 27, from 3-8:30 p.m. in the gazebo area at the Michael J. Mauri Park.
Roselle Park is already a happening place for arts and music festivals, and saxophonist, jazz educator and Roselle Park resident say they always dreamed of bringing a jazz festival to the town.
Families will groove to the sounds of the JTole Big Bands, led by Roselle Park resident and award-winning saxophonist, Julius Tolentino, as they bring their talent to the Main Stage alongside special guest artists Dave Stryker, Samantha Powell, and the George Gee Orchestra. Festival attendees will want to move to the beat with free swing dancing lessons.
There will be a variety of vendors and food trucks on-site to appease every appetite or shopping desire. Adult attendees ages 21, and over with ID, can enjoy an ice-cold brew in the Climax Brewing Co. Beer Garden.
This FREE community event by the Borough of Roselle Park and Jazz Changes, a nonprofit organization focused on providing children with jazz education, instruction, and mentorship opportunities, and through the generous donations of numerous event sponsors.
The Roselle Park Jazz Festival is produced by Wood Legacy Productions. For more information please call (973) 619-2662.
