Petworth Jazz Festival kicks off 5th season

This Saturday, May 30th is the kickoff of the 5th season of the Petworth Jazz Project at Petworth Park (8th & Taylor). There's always a kids' show first, followed by a very talented jazz musician or group. 

Kids' show starts at 6pm with the dynamic musical guidance of Joe Kennedy. Joe presents an interactive group drumming and singing session for kids of all ages.  

6pm: Kids Show featuring Joe Kennedy
7pm-9pm: Donvonte McCoy Quintet

Mr. McCoy and his quintet have been named Best Small Jazz Ensemble by the Washington City Paper 2 years running, and last year he was named Best Jazz Trumpet Player by the Washington City Paper. Mr. McCoy also holds the distinction of performing the first show of the first season of the Jazz Project. We are looking forward to having him back!!

As always Petworth Jazz Project brings the best in local jazz to the heart of Petworth, for free, outdoors, on the lawn. Is there any better way to spend your evening? Tell a neighbor and bring a friend!
