Jersey City Jazz Festival: Hot Weather, Cool Tunes

The hot sun is shining and cool tunes are coming to New Jersey. The Jersey City Jazz Festival is back for its 10th anniversary slate of performances from June 1 - 4, 2023 throughout Jersey City. The festival will kick off with JC Jazz Nights at various venues throughout the city, leading up to a two-day free outdoor festival on Saturday (6/3) and Sunday (6/4) at the newly renovated Exchange Place Plaza

Performances include Bill Frisell Trio (6/3), Stephane Wrembel’s Django A GoGo (6/4), and Walter Parks & The Unlawful Assembly (6/2). Latin Jazz impresario Sonido Solar perform with special guest Eddie Palmieri (6/3), trombonist Doug Beavers Luna performs on June 4th. Other events include dance classes, two post-festival events at the Hyatt House situated right at the festival - a jam session run by guitarist Charlie Sigler and a rooftop performance from Martin Kelley Affinity. Radam Schwartz Organ Big Band joins the show as well as the Miki Yamanaka Trio and many more.

“This year’s festival is so exciting for many reasons”, says Riverview Jazz director Bryan Beninghove. “We are at a new permanent location, which is unbelievable - the views, the transportation, the amenities - just awesome. We’re going to feature four days of unique high quality performances, a lot for free and some ticketed events that can help support our music community. This is the first time since the pandemic that we have been able to match the scope of the festival as it was pre-Covid. A perfect way to celebrate 10 years!”
