The Great CT Traditional Jazz Festival

This year’s Great Connecticut Traditional Jazz Festival will be held on July 28, 2012 at the Four Points Sheraton hotel in Meriden.  Ticket prices are $30 until July 21.  After that, tickets cost $35.  With two venues and eight bands, this is one jazz festival you certainly don’t want to miss!

The Great CT Traditional Jazz Festival will feature nine hours of great music, delicious food, and free parking.  Good seats are plentiful, and concert-goers who wish to stay overnight can expect a discounted rate at the Sheraton.

Last year’s Festival featured The Galvanized Jazz Band, the Heartbeat Dixieland Jazz Band, The Midiri Brothers, and so many more.  For this years 26th annual presentation of great music, I’m sure we’ll see another impressive lineup!  If you’d like to help with the Festival, call 1-800-HOT-EVENT (1-800-468-3836) or  email Ray Ross at rross92239@sbcglobal.net or Ken Chant at kcjazz2001@yahoo.com.
