Radam Schwartz, Master of the Hammond B3, sent this note out to his mailing list recently:

Please help us support live jazz in New Brunswick by getting the word out about the New Brunswick Jazz Festival.

As many of you know, the festival is the vision of Allen McGriff who started the festival with no funding several years ago.

He’s counting on your continued support as it moves to the new downtown venue. Please post the attached flyer to your Facebook page and distribute to your email list!

You heard the man! Get the word out. See you in New Brunswick on Saturday and Sunday May 1st and 2nd. Click here for details.
