The Selby Ave JazzFest remains one of St. Paul's funnest summer events. Historically a family friendly happening, it's a chance to get outdoors while the weather's still warm and enjoy a nice time in the community. There's always a bunch of top shelf Twin Cities talent on-hand. This year, the lineup includes: long-time staple on the bill Dick and Jane’s Big Brass Band, Walker West Music Academy’s Urban Legends of Jazz, Brio Brass, highly touted rising star, sax man Danny Kusz and the Jazz Heritage Showcase, a Selby Ave JazzFest tradition. Festival founder Michael Wright states in a press release, “This year’s Showcase is a two-parter. First off will be Jason and the Q who will be taking a nostalgic look at the 1920’s and ‘30’s. We’ll take a break for our annual awards ceremony, then follow things up with Dick and Jane Revisited, featuring Twin Cities legendary vocalist Maurice Jacox. This is panning out to be very special!”MORE »
