Jazz Advocate in partnership with the Centerville Arts Commission and WDPS 89.5FM radio is please to invite you to our 5th annual Jazz & Peace Festival. The event will be co-hosted by Clay “The Cooker” Collins of WDPS-FM and Charles “Butch” Stone of Jazz Central. A true family event designed to bring people and communities together to hear America’s Music.
The BRD (Bird) House Jammers will open followed by the Latin jazz group Chango, then life time jazz achievement winner Rick Evans, who will be followed by a true international jazz vocalist Mandy Gaines, with the United States Air Force Nighthawk jazz combo closing. The Dayton International Peace Mobile and Missing Peace Arts Space will be joining us again this year with many activities for the kids.
This event is made possible through a grant from Montgomery County and support from the Kroger Company – the concert is free, so bring your lawn chairs & blankets and enjoy the music at beautiful Stubbs Park Amphitheater from 1 to 7 pm on July 9, 2011. Details, directions and map of the Jazz and Peace Festival are available here.
