The Central Jersey Jazz Festival will fill downtown New Brunswick with the soulful sounds of jazz from 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13.
Held in conjunction with Hub City Sounds, the festival will feature performances by Ravi Coltrane Quartet, Josh Evans Sextet, Jazzmeia Horn Quintet and the New Brunswick District Jazz Band. The New Brunswick District Jazz Band is an ensemble of New Brunswick student musicians. Although the band performs all types of jazz, Latin jazz is the favorite of their repertoire.
All performances will take place in Monument Square and will be held rain or shine. Seating will open at noon, with performances beginning at 1 p.m.
The festival has two additional dates scheduled – Friday, Sept. 12 in Flemington and Sunday, Sept. 14 in Somerville.
All performances are free.
