The Blue Jay Jazz Festival, once known as The Summer Jazz Celebration, was born in the summer of 1991. The Blue Jay Business Association and the Arrowhead Arts Association puts on the festival each year. Donations and grant funding supported the festival and concerts were held on four Thursday nights in August. Although the festival started out as a free concert, the first paid-admission jazz concert was on April 17 of that year. Headliners included members of the NBC Tonight Show Orchestra, conducted by Tommy Newsom and featuring Conte Candoli, Snooky Young, Ross Tompins and Ed Shaugnessy.
The Blue Jay Jazz Foundation has presented outstanding jazz performances every summer. Popular artists continue to entertain the community with sounds of traditional, modern and contemporary jazz. This year, don’t miss performances from Poncho Sanchez, Jack Sheldon, Kilauea, Gregg Karukas, 60 Grit, and Kenny Burrell.
